Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Liverpool

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Premier League clash with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from their North London derby defeat to Tottenham Hotspur when they welcome champions Liverpool to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Mikel Arteta's side saw their European hopes take a significant blow as their five-match unbeaten streak came to an end at the home of their fiercest rivals, squandering a 1-0 lead to lose at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

The Gunners now host a Liverpool side that need victories in all of their remaining games to break the all-time points record for the English top flight, having already wrapped up the title in record time.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Liverpool's visit.
