They will be further assessed before the game to determine their readiness for the game while Willian has recoverd from a calf injury.
Arsenal are expected to field a strong side despite having a Europa League quarterfinal on Thursday. Similarly Liverpool have a Champions League game on Tuesday but are also expected to field their best players.
Gabriel is expected to return to the starting lineup while Calum Chambers will likely retain his place after a brilliant display against West Ham.
Nicolas Pepe should finally get a deserved start in the absence of Saka on the right side.
Arsenal predicted starting lineup:
Leno; Chambers, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Pepe, Odegaard, Aubameyang; Lacazette
