Confirmed Liverpool v Arsenal lineups: Benteke and Caulker on the bench

Here is how Liverpool and Arsenal will line up this evening...

Liverpool host Arsenal in the Premier League this evening, with Jurgen Klopp looking to find some consistency.

With five wins, four defeats and one draw in the last ten games, Liverpool haven't yet managed to put together a real run of results.

After drawing 2-2 with Exeter in the FA Cup on Friday, Klopp will be hoping for a big performance against league leaders Arsenal, with new signing Steven Caulker on the bench after joining from QPR earlier this week.

Christian Benteke is only on the bench, as Klopp chooses to go with a frontline of Jordon Ibe, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana, whilst James Milner starts in midfield.

Goalkeeper Danny Ward has been recalled from Aberdeen and is on the bench, along with fellow youngsters Brad Smith and Joao Teixeira.

Meanwhile, visitors Arsenal recorded a comfortable 3-1 win over Sunderland in the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Arsene Wenger has named a familiar line-up tonight, with Petr Cech in goal, and Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker and Nacho Monreal in front of him.

Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini continue in midfield, whilst Theo Walcott, Joel Campbell and Mesut Ozil will support Olivier Giroud in attack.

England internationals Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers are all on the bench, along with young goalkeeper Matt Macey.
