Liverpool vs Arsenal - Alisson and Keita still sidelined for Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielder Naby Keita are both still a few weeks away from fitness ahead of the visit of Arsenal.

Alisson is off his crutches after a calf injury but will not be ready until after the international break.

Keita is also looking at further time on the sidelines as he recovers from a muscle strain.

Mesut Ozil could make his first appearance of the season for Arsenal.

The Gunners head to Anfield with Ozil available following illness, while midfielder Granit Xhaka is also in contention to return after missing the win over Burnley with bruising to his back.

Club-record signing Nicolas Pepe is pushing to make his full debut following two substitute appearances but Konstantinos Mavropanos and Kieran Tierney (both groin) and Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) are absent.

Liverpool provisional squad: Adrian, Lonergan, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson,  Gomez, Fabinho, Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Shaqiri, Origi, Brewster.

Arsenal provisional squad: Leno, Martinez, Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Luiz, Papastathopoulos, Chambers, Monreal, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreira, Elneny, Willock, Ceballos, Mkhitaryan, Pepe, Nelson, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Martinelli.
