Alisson & Naby Keita: Liverpool’s early team news vs Arsenal

Liverpool vs Arsenal

First takes on second in the Premier League next Saturday night, as Liverpool host Arsenal.

Liverpool and Arsenal remain the only two clubs in the division with a 100% record after two games.

Starting with the Reds, who have also beaten Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup, they’ve beaten Norwich and Southampton in the league.

Arsenal have scored wins against Newcastle and Burnley in their opening fixtures.

Alisson & Naby Keita

Once again, Liverpool look set to be without Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson against Arsenal.

Alisson has been sidelined since he sustained a calf injury against Norwich.

On August 12th, Jurgen Klopp claimed that Alisson could be out of action for the “next few weeks”.

Accordingly, Adrian is likely to start in goal against the Gunners.

Further forward, Naby Keita is out of the Arsenal game, reports the Mirror:

Klopp has an injury problem in midfield, with Naby Keita ruled out of the weekend visit of Arsenal by a muscle problem in the hip area. The manager indicated he could be out for a while.

Nathaniel Clyne is the only other injured player on Liverpool’s books right now.

Arsenal have six injury concerns

Rob Holding (left knee) is back in training, while young midfielder Emile Smith Rowe (groin) could return to first team training in one to two weeks.

As for Hector Bellerin, he could return to training in October. That’s the same target for defender Dinos Mavropanos.

Elsewhere, Granit Xhaka could return against Liverpool following a back problem.

Mesut Ozil could also be involved at Anfield after he’s been missing recently.
