Arsenal could be without key man for Liverpool clash


Arsenal may have had their problems lately, but they couldn’t have picked a better time to face Liverpool.

The Reds’ confidence must be shot after their 3-1 defeat at Leicester, and with Lucas Leiva likely to start at centre-back and James Milner at left-back, Arsenal’s forwards should have a field day.

Then again, it’s possible that the Gunners won’t be at full strength either.

Goal are reporting that Mesut Ozil had to leave training early on Wednesday on doctor’s orders after falling ill.

Premier League top scorer Alexis Sanchez is still the main man, but Ozil could be a big loss nonetheless.


Of course, some Arsenal fans will debate how pivotal he actually is, considering his tendency to go missing in the big games.

The Germany international has just five goals and four assists in the league this season and has looked completely off the boil since the turn of the year.

Liverpool could be a good chance for him to rediscover his form, though, so Wenger will be hoping he recovers in time.
