Arsenal’s selection problems vs Liverpool
Unai Emery has several selection concerns before the Liverpool game.
Will Spanish defender Hector Bellerin be fit for the match?
Bellerin left last weekend’s Crystal Palace match at halftime with injury, and the right-back is a doubt for the Liverpool game.
Staying with Arsenal’s backline, left-backs Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac have both been sidelined in recent weeks with hamstring injuries.
Centre-halves Konstantinos Mavropanos and Laurent Koscielny are also on Arsenal’s injury report.
Finally, midfielder Mohamed Elneny is out with a thigh injury.
