Predicted Liverpool and Arsenal line-ups - Who starts for huge game?

Match to be played on Sunday 21st December 2014 at 16:00. Venue: Anfield, Liverpool.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that his side can back up their positive win against Bournemouth in the League Cup during the week.

Key striker Mario Balotelli has been ruled out from featuring during the game because of suspension, but the boss will believe there is enough creative ability in his team to give Arsenal some problems.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be hoping his side can back up a great result against Newcastle United when they travel to Liverpool this weekend.

Arsenal can take confidence from how they played in that game last weekend, because Newcastle is never an easy ground to go to. The side will also be out for revenge based on the way they played at Anfield last season.

A win for Arsenal could move them into the top four while a win for Liverpool could move them into the top half of the table.

Here are the potential teams that each manager could go with.

Liverpool: Jones, Manquillo, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Lucas, Henderson, Gerrard, Sterling, Lallana, Lambert

Arsenal: Szczesny, Bellerin, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini, Cazorla, Sanchez, Welbeck, Giroud
