Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Jack Wilshere both start for Arsenal in their Premier League clash with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Jack Wilshere both start for Arsenal in their Premier League clash with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night.

Arsene Wenger's decision to stick with a back four means that 20-year-old Maitland-Niles is selected over Sead Kolasinac, while Wilshere benefits from the absence of Aaron Ramsey in the middle of the park.

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil also both start for the Gunners, while Alex Iwobi is preferred to Danny Welbeck out wide.

As for Liverpool, Andrew Robertson and Ragnar Klavan both start due to the absences of Alberto Moreno and Joel Matip, while Sadio Mane starts alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the final third.

Former Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the bench for the away side.

Arsenal: Cech; Bellerin, Koscielny, Monreal, Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Wilshere; Iwobi, Ozil, Sanchez; Lacazette
Subs: Ospina, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Coquelin, Elneny, Walcott, Welbeck

Liverpool: Mignolet; Gomez, Lovren, Klavan, Robertson; Henderson, Can, Coutinho; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Subs: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Milner, Solanke
