    Gabriel Jesus misses out on Arsenal's Premier League clash with Liverpool. The Brazilian forward had been a doubt heading into the game after playing through a knee issue during Tuesday's win over Nottingham Forest.

    There had been some hope that he could be fit for this top of the table clash, however. "Gabi obviously played and trained with us the whole week," Arteta said in his pre-match press conference.

    He is, however, unavailable to play in any form against Liverpool this Sunday. He is replaced in the starting XI by Kai Havertz, who plays up front against Liverpool once again.

    He is one of two changes that Mikel Arteta makes to his starting XI from Tuesday's 2-1 win over Forest. Jorginho replaces Emile Smith Rowe in the other with Declan Rice pushing further forward in midfield.

    That means that Takehiro Tomiyasu is not back in time for the game. Japan were eliminated from the Asian Cup on Saturday after a 2-1 defeat to Iran, leading to some suggestions that he could be involved in this game. He is not even on the bench however.

    Ben White and Oleksandr Zinchenko meanwhile both keep their places at full back. The pair were involved in a heated discussion at full time following the win at the City Ground in midweek.

    Mohamed Elneny is back among the subs. Egypt were eliminated from the African Cup of Nations by the Democratic Republic of the Congo earlier in the week.

    Arsenal confirmed XI vs Liverpool – Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Jorginho, Rice, Odegaard; Saka, Havertz Martinelli.

    Arsenal subs – Ramsdale, Cedric, Walters, Kiwior, Elneny, Smith Rowe, Nelson, Trossard, Nketiah.
