A select round-up of the latest news relating to Liverpool…
Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield later today in a match the Reds will be desperate to win to put their recent woes behind them.
In early team news, the BBC reports that Liverpool are without the suspended Mario Balotelli, while Daniel Sturridge and Glen Johnson are both out injured.
Summer signing Dejan Lovren is a doubt, meaning Kolo Toure could feature from the start.
Sterling was recently crowned Europe’s Golden Boy for 2014 and he will want to mark that achievement with a match-winning performance this afternoon, but he knows it will not be easy.
“You want to win every game,” Sterling said, “but in games such as Arsenal, you always want to come out on top because these are the games that really test where you are at.”
