Liverpool’s expected XI vs Arsenal as Henderson and Mane add to injury crisis
Liverpool have suffered their latest injury scare of the international break as Jordan Henderson has been forced to withdraw from the England squad.
Henderson was on the scoresheet for the Three Lions on Friday evening as Gareth Southgate's side demolished Albania.
However, Henderson has pulled out of the San Marino clash due to an injury he picked up on Friday evening.
But Henderson isn't the only Liverpool player out of action, with Sadio Mane limping off the pitch for Senegal too.
And Daily Star Sport is looking at how Liverpool could line up against Arsenal next weekend should the pair miss the clash.
Alisson is the obvious choice to start in net for Jurgen Klopp's side, and Loris Karius and Adrian shouldn't put up too much of a fight.
Expect Klopp's defence to remain the same too: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, and Andy Robertson.
The Reds' usual sturdy defence hasn't looked as solid as previous years this campaign, with Liverpool conceding 11 goals in their first 11 games.
However, Klopp will be trusting his old faithful to get the job against Mikel Arteta's side.

The midfield is where it becomes tricky for Klopp with the absence of his captain.
Fabinho will be the first name on his teamsheet, and the Reds often only play as well as the Brazilian can break up play and dominate the midfield.
Ahead of him in the midfield three should be Thiago and Curtis Jones, Thiago has struggled for game time this season due to injuries, but with minutes under his belt, Thiago will only get better.
And Jones has been the revelation of the season thanks to his brilliant performances for the Reds.

Klopp faces a tricky decision without Mane too, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota are a lock to start.
But without Roberto Firmino the final space in the front three will be between Takumi Minamino or Divock Origi.
Daily Star Sport think Origi will get the nod to provide more balance to the attack.
Liverpool expected XI : Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Thiago, Jones; Salah, Origi, Jota.
