The under-pressure 20-year-old will look to put a week of negative press reports behind him with an impressive display in today’s game, with manager Brendan Rodgers making a big statement in backing him from the start.

Sterling’s inclusion means an end to his time in the right wing-back role, with Jordan Henderson seemingly set to move out there to accommodate Lucas Leiva’s return.

Daniel Sturridge is only fit enough to make the bench following his return from a hip injury, while there’s no room in the match-day squad for either Mario Balotelli or Rickie Lambert.

Arsenal fans have reacted with a wave of confidence, but they would do well to remember that it’s the Reds – not the Gunners – who top the Premier League form table since the turn of the year.
