Injury hit Liverpool FC host Arsenal FC at Anfield, hoping to thwart the Gunners’ title challenge and boost their chances of a top four finish.

Liverpool FC, however, will have to overcome a confident Arsenal FC, who have lost just once in the last 10 games and have won two on the bounce.

The Reds have their squad severely curtailed, with as many as 10 players out injured, prompting Jurgen Klopp to recall goalkeeper Danny Ward and loaning Steven Caulker from Queens Park Ranger. Arsenal FC themselves have their injury issues, with Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez both out of the tie.
