Mesut Özil and Emre Can are expected to come face to face tonight as Arsenal host Liverpool in the final game of the week at the Emirates Stadium.
Can has started on the bench for Liverpool’s opening two games of the season but has been tipped to start tonight following an injury to Jordan Henderson. The 21-year-old will play in his favoured midfield position if selected.
Henderson came off injured during last weekend’s victory over Bournemouth and is a major doubt for tonights game.
Mesut Özil is expected to start again following his staring role in the Gunners 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in the previous round.
The Germany international also scored and provided an assist when Arsenal hosted Liverpool last season.
