Possible starting lineups:

Alisson; Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
I expect Arsenal to win this derby clash. There are three main reasons for my pick. The first is connect with the hosts. Arsenal are in excellent form in the last period. The Gunners are unbeaten in the last 13 matches across all competitions. Even more, they won 12 of the mentioned 13 games, drawing only with Crystal Palace last week (2:2). By the way, both goals at Selhurst Park were conceded from the penalties. In addition, I will mention the home form - Unai Emery s men have won all seven of their competitive home matches at the Emirates since the opening defeat to Manchester City.
The second reason for my pick is connect with Liverpool. The Reds are very good against small teams. Last weekend they outplayed Cardiff City and won 4:1. However, it seems they have a problem in the big matches. Liverpool played 1:1 with Chelsea and 0:0 with Manchester City in the Premier League. In addition, they lost 0:1 to Napoli in the Champions League and lost 1:2 to Chelsea in the League Cup. As You could see, the Reds have scored just two goals on the mentioned four games.
The last reason is connect with the managers. Unai Emery and Jurgen Klopp have met in the 2016 UEFA Europa League final, in which Emery s Sevilla beat Liverpool with 3:1.
