Liverpool pair Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson are likely to feature in today’s tie against Arsenal despite sustaining injuries on international duty.

Sadio Mane is fit and Fabinho is also expected to play, but Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez remain out.

Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey, is available after he missed the win over Watford with a muscular issue.

Sead Kolasinac has been ruled out because of an ankle injury.

Arsenal is unbeaten in their past 10 games in all competitions, but this is by far their biggest test since that run started.

The Gunners are banking on the attack led by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in today’s battle at Anfield.

Liverpool looked porous in the final half-hour of their defeat by West Ham. This might give Arsenal the opportunity to create chances against them.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers says midfielder Youri Tielemans will be out “for a few weeks” with the calf injury he sustained against Leeds.

Marc Albrighton is fit again but James Justin isn’t yet ready to return for today’s match against Chelsea.

Chelsea remains without injured pair Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic, but Timo Werner is back in training and will be assessed.

Mason Mount is expected to be available following dental surgery and Christian Pulisic is fit.

Chelsea is still top of the table, but they hit a little bump before the international break when they were held at home by Burnley.
