The Premier League title race could reach boiling point on Wednesday night, as Liverpool look to close to within a single point of Manchester City – a remarkable turnaround given a double-digit points lead for the reigning champions not long ago.

Arsenal have their own objectives at hand though as they host the Reds, namely that of ensuring they secure a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League.

Victory for the Gunners would mean a four-point buffer down to Manchester United, and still with two games in hand for Mikel Arteta’s side after Wednesday.

But Liverpool have won eight on the spin and knocked Arsenal out of the League Cup semi-finals, en route to picking up silverware at Wembley earlier this year.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

Takehiro Tomiyasu is the only injury absentee for Arsenal so Cedric Soares should continue at right-back. Mikel Arteta could name an unchanged side again, though Emile Smith Rowe will hope for a recall.

Liverpool have Roberto Firmino, Thiago and Ibrahima Konate back, while Mohamed Salah is back in training too after sitting out Monday following a minor weekend injury against Brighton. Diogo Jota will also be pushing for a recall in attack.

Prediction

It’s a long time since Arsenal won a meaningful encounter between the sides and given the visitors’ recent league form, there’s little reason to suspect that will change here. An away victory to keep both title race and top-four fight interesting. Arsenal 0-3 Liverpool.
