Arsenal will be looking to frustrate the newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.

The Gunners head into the contest in eighth place with 50 points from 35 games. A win could see them revive their hopes of having Europa League football next season.

The Gunners have no fresh injury concerns heading into the game, according to Sky Sports.  

Youngster Eddie Nketiah is set to serve the second of his three match suspension after being sent off against Leicester City. Mesut Ozil who appears to have no future at the Emirates is also set to miss the game with the official reason for his absence being “back soreness”.

The report added that Pablo Mari (ankle), Bernd Leno, Gabrial Martinelli and Calum Chambers will all remain out of action due to their respective injuries.

Arsenal heads into the game on the back of a frustrating 2-1 defeat against Tottenham.

The result would have been especially frustrating for the Gunners as they dominated Jose Mourinho’s men for large periods of the game and looked to be the more dominant side.

The Gunners can aim to play positive football against the Merseysiders. Liverpool has looked somewhat lethargic since being confirmed as Premier League Champions.

Since then, they have lost 4-0 to Manchester City, drawn with Burnley, and were made to work hard to earn a 2-0 win against relegation-threatened Aston Villa.

However, the Gunners defence which has been vulnerable will have to be solid if they want to contain the Liverpool attack.
