The combined best XIs of Liverpool and Arsenal ahead of the crunch match.

Liverpool takes on Arsenal at Anfield in a Premier League match that could be decisive.

In the first Premier League match after the international break, Liverpool will face an ever-improving Arsenal side.

Given the vastly different fortunes of both sides, a win for Jurgen Klopp’s side over Mikel Arteta’s side would have been almost a foregone conclusion in recent seasons.

Liverpool has won its sixth Champions League and first Premier League title in the last four seasons, while Arsenal has failed to even qualify for the top four.

The tumultuous battle at Anfield, however, appears to be refreshingly even for the first time since the Arsene Wenger era.

Following West Ham’s win over Liverpool, Arteta’s side enters the match with the Premier League’s longest unbeaten streak, having started the season in 20th place with 0 goals scored and 0 goals conceded.

In today’s game, the North Londoners are currently in fifth place, breathing down Liverpool’s neck.

Express Sport considers the best combined Xi on current form, going into the match, ahead of the titanic clash on Merseyside.

Ramsdale vs Alisson

Since joining the Emirates for £25 million in the summer, Aaron Ramsdale has kept five clean sheets in eight appearances.

In Arsenal’s 2-0 away win over Leicester City, his miraculous fingertip save from James Maddison’s looping free-kick was nothing short of miraculous.

Alisson, on the other hand, has been one of the best goalkeepers in the world since his £67 million move from Roma, and despite a poor performance against West Ham, he is still the better goalkeeper of the two.

Alisson was declared the winner.

Tomiyasu vs. Alexander-Arnold

Takehiro Tomiyasu arrived in the summer as a relatively unknown player, but he has quietly solved Arsenal’s problems at right-back.

The £16 million arrival from Bologna fit in like a glove, instantly solidifying a right side that had been constantly exposed.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is one of the best attacking right backs in the world, but the Hammers exposed his defensive shortcomings before the international break.

Tomiyasu will get the nod ahead of the game based on his current form.
