Strongest Liverpool Line-up To Face Arsenal – Real Test For SAS

Liverpool host table toppers Arsenal at Anfield in what promises to be an absolute block buster of an encounter. Brendan Rodgers’ team go into the clash after s frustrating one all draw against Pepe Mel’s West Bromwich Albion side who were lucky to get a point thanks to Kolo Toure’s horrendous mistake at the back. Arsenal will however come to Anfield with all guns blazing and looking to beat the Reds on their own turf to lay claims to their Championship winning credentials. Arsenal currently lead the table after Manchester City were shocked by Chelsea in their own backyard while Liverpool lie fourth two ahead of cross town rivals Everton. So can Liverpool nullify Arsenal with their squad and what will be Brendan Rodgers’ best possible lineup?

We here at Soccersouls have the answer:

Goalkeeping and Defense

Liverpool Kolo Toure Mignolet

Simon Mingolet is expected to be very busy under the sticks manning the Liverpool goal. The Belgian shot stopper has to be wary of the magnificent Arsenal midfield who can create for their lone striker from anywhere in the park and also score goals at will, mainly Santi Cazorla, the Spaniard who has been magical in the past few weeks.

Whatever the defense of the home side is going to be, Brendan Rodgers needs to send out a strong squad which can contain the likes of Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud and Gnabry or Podolski. Glen Johnson misses out as  in-form John Flanagan plays in right back with Cissokho manning the defensive side in the other flank. Jose Enrique, Daniel Agger and Sakho are all out as Martin Skrtel will have to be well aware to his mistakes and his partner’s, who else but former Gunner Kolo Toure.
