Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Liverpool

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

Arsenal will be looking to continue their impressive start to the 2020-21 campaign when they travel to Premier League champions Liverpool on Monday night.

The Gunners beat the Reds in the Community Shield at the end of last month, while they progressed in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night courtesy of a 2-0 success at Leicester City.

Mikel Arteta's side have also made a perfect start to their 2020-21 Premier League season, beating Fulham and West Ham United to put an early six points on the board.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the London outfit's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash at Anfield.
