Milner to miss out
Liverpool will be without James Milner for their game against Arsenal.
The Liverpool midfielder is set for more time out of the team.
However, Liverpool expect the rest of their midfield to be fit.

That’s with the exception of long term absentee Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Alberto Moreno is also available, though will be lucky to make the bench.
Milner will miss the game due to a muscular injury.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will want as many of his key players fit as possible.
After Arsenal, Liverpool face City in a game that will have a huge impact on the title race.

Six point gap
Liverpool have a six point gap at the top of the table.
The favourites for the Premier League title are being chased by Tottenham Hotspur in second place.
Man City also sit in third, seven points behind Liverpool.
The Reds could afford to lose to Arsenal and City – and still be a point ahead of City.

It’s long been the joke about Liverpool’s year – yet this season it actually seems as though it could well be the case.
To fail to win the title now would be a disaster for Klopp and the Reds.
