Preview: Liverpool vs. Arsenal

BY foxsports • December 11, 2009

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez will bring back his big guns for the visit of Arsenal to Anfield for Sunday's crunch Premier League clash.

Jamie Carragher, Glen Johnson and Jose Reina were all rested for the Champions League defeat by Fiorentina on Wednesday but are expected to face the Gunners.

Benitez must decide whether Alberto Aquilani is ready for a Premier League starting role, despite facing his fellow Italians in midweek.

Fernando Torres is likely to lead the attack for the first time since the draw in Lyon on November 4. Lucas Leiva and Fabio Aurelio are also likely to return.

Kick-off is at 4pm.




Liverpool (from): Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Benayoun, Gerrard, Mascherano, Aquilani, Kuyt, Torres, Cavalieri, Lucas, Aurelio, Skrtel, Riera, Kyrgiakos, Ngog, El Zhar.
