Arsenal will host league leaders Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening as both sides seek to get the better of each other in the FA Cup. The Gunners suffered a tough 2-1 defeat away at Fulham recently. In contrast, the Reds secured a dominant 4-2 win over Newcastle United.
Mikel Arteta will opt for the 4-3-3 formation and could ask his men to dominate the ball and create enough chances to win this cup game at the Emirates.
Jurgen Klopp will set his men up in a 4-3-3 formation as well and might instruct his players to defend their lines well and engineer some clear-cut chances on the counter.
