Liverpool XI vs Arsenal: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for Premier League

In the upcoming Premier League clash against Arsenal, Darwin Nunez appears poised to maintain his role as Liverpool’s frontman. Despite a goal drought spanning 11 games, Jurgen Klopp dispelled any speculation about Nunez’s position, emphasizing the team’s current standing in the league.
