Whilst the Merseysiders have every reason to be apprehensive about the fixture in light of their struggles for form in 2022/23, a convincing win in the Champions League has provided a glimpse of what the rest of the season could look like by maintaining a change in formation.
On the manager’s front, he’ll be particularly keen to do away with suggestions of a ‘seventh season syndrome’ and prove to his critics that his time at L4 is set for a heartbreaking end before 2026.

Ahead of Alisson Becker in between the sticks, the German tactician has gone for a centre-back partnership of Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.
It appears that the manager has boldly kept his XI unchanged for the clash with the Gunners, keeping his chosen two-man midfield of Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara – a decision that will likely appeal to a considerable number of supporters.
The forward line is set to comprise of Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Mo Salah.
