Arsenal team news update for Liverpool

Here is all the latest Arsenal team news ahead of their meeting with Liverpool.

Gabriel Jesus both scored and assisted in the win over Nottingham Forest but had an issue with his problematic knee once again.

Speaking after the match, Mikel Arteta said: “I don’t know [if he’ll be fit]. He got hit big time in the last game. His knee reacted and it’s the knee he had [surgery on] before. He was super positive, he’s feeling good and he was so sharp in training. I’m not surprised with the way he played tonight.”

Elsewhere, long-time absentee Jurrien Timber has stepped up to be involved in ball training and there is a growing sense of optimism that he will be involved before the end of the season.

On the stopper, Mikel Arteta had this to say: “There is a possibility [he plays again this season, but at the moment he’s still very far from competing. That’s the realistic picture of it. Are we hopeful that he could have a realistic impact before the end of the season? If everything goes well, it looks like that might happen. At the moment though it’s too early to make that call.”

Finally, Thomas Partey has not featured since the game against Manchester City back in October but has now returned to first-team training. He was unavailable against Forest but is closing in on a return and could play some part vs Liverpool.
