Reds looking to regain top spot at Arsenal

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is in line to make his first appearance in over six weeks at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow afternoon, after recovering from a shoulder injury.

Jose Enrique also looks set to miss out as he recovers from a knee problem, with Iago Aspas and Sebastian Coates also remain on the side-lines.

Three points for the Reds would see them leapfrog Arsenal, while they will go top if they win and Chelsea fail to beat Newcastle United.

Liverpool are unbeaten on their last three visits to the Gunners, with last season’s corresponding fixture ending 2-2.

Tomorrow’s match will see Luis Suarez go up against the club who failed in two attempts to sign him during the summer.

Arsene Wenger offered £40m and a pound in an attempt to trigger a reported clause in the Uruguay international’s contract at a time when it looked almost certain that he would be leaving Merseyside.

However, the 26 year old remained with the club, and has returned to first team action in superb style following his ten match suspension.

His hat-trick in the 4-1 win over West Bromwich Albion last weekend took him to six goals in just four league games this season, and fifty-seven in one hundred and one appearances in all competitions since signing from Ajax in January 2011.
