Manuel Almunia starts in goal for Arsenal at Anfield, and will wear the captain's armband against Liverpool.
But the Gunners are without Cesc Fabregas, who does not feature in Arsène Wenger's 18-man squad.
Arsenal team in full: Almunia, Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Clichy, Eboue, Wilshere, Diaby, Nasri, Chamakh, Arshavin
Substitutes: Fabianski, Gibbs, Song, Rosicky, Walcott, Vela, Van Persie
