Liverpool v Arsenal – Probable lineups – Wenger facing selection headache

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is facing a selection headache going into this evening’s clash with Liverpool.

The French tactician will be without his star playmaker Mesut Ozil who has been struck by a cold. The 28-year-old hasn’t participated in first team training this week.

Star defender Laurent Koscielny is a doubt going into tonight’s clash while Santi Cazorla is ruled out with a long-term injury.

Liverpool’s only injury concern is of their captain and star midfielder Jordan Henderson. The England international missed Monday night’s defeat at the hands of Leicester City.
