Arsenal are facing a dire situation with most of their defense players watching tomorrow’s game against Liverpool F.C. from the bench. The Reds although can expect themselves to bring out their best especially since Arsenal were on a high ending run before Crystal Palace’s game last week. The Emirates’ host these two clubs who have been one of the biggest rivals in the history of Football at Great Britain.
With only 4 points separating the two teams, we can expect tomorrow’s match to be a Boxing Day themed match as both the teams have the best forward lineups in the Premier League.

Unai Emery will again be desperate of having another Left Back as both the usual left-backs are injured, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac have been out since the past the three weeks.
Nacho Monreal has injured his minor right hamstring. He would be assessed ahead of Liverpool (h) on Saturday, November 3.
Sead Kolasinac, too, has injured his minor right hamstring. He, too, would be assessed ahead of Liverpool (h) on Saturday, November 3.
Hector Bellerin has damaged right thigh and it still, is a question if he would play against Liverpool (h) on Saturday, November 3.
Sokratis Papastathpoulos bruised his right ankle. He would be assessed ahead of Liverpool (h) on Saturday, November 3.
Mohammed Elneny hurt his right thigh and is expected to return to full training in two weeks.
Laurent Koscielny is getting his right Achilles tendon repaired. He is currently being integrated back into full training.
Dinos Mavropanos suffers from a groin injury and is expected to return to full training in November.
Six out of the Seven players out are defenders. Elneny also plays an important role at the back; this has obliterated the wall of Arsenal with only one familiar player on the pitch at the back currently i.e. Shkodran Mustafi. His performance in the coming match will describe his stance in the team. If Bellerin is given the signal to play the match, Unai will have to consider Stephan Lichsteiner in a different position then.
We want to write a new history… The result tomorrow is important but first I want to show everyone our best mentality in the game. I know if we have a very big mentality in the game and a big performance and also some luck we can win. #Arsenal pic.twitter.com/xOzbgCL06u …

With that being said, Unai Emery has the chance to play Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the left side or else bring him on as a substitute which seems to be his forte right now as the last two matches paved his path towards the top goal scorers of the League.
The predicted Lineup for tomorrow’s match is :
GK : Petr Cech
He has come back from injury and we can expect him to return to his best after settling in for a games.
Defenders : Stephan Lichsteiner, Rob Holding, Shkodran Mustafi, Hector Bellerin(doubtful)
Midfielders : Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Lucas Torreira
Forwards : Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alex Iwobi
