Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Liverpool

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League showdown with Liverpool.

After winning their first two league games of the season for the first time in 10 years, Arsenal's next fixture will see them travel to European champions Liverpool.

Gunners boss Unai Emery gave first starts to new signings Dani Ceballos and David Luiz against Burnley, with the Spanish midfielder leaving the Emirates to a standing ovation after an excellent performance.

Although there are still a number of players on the treatment table for the North London side, Saturday's game did see Sead Kolasinac return to action after the recent police investigation regarding an attack on him and teammate Mesut Ozil last month.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of next weekend's trip to Anfield.
