Newcastle‘s 2-0 victory over Chelsea earlier this afternoon saw Liverpool move up to second in the league. Victory at the Emirates tonight would see the Reds move top.

In comes Jon Flanagan at right-wing-back for Glen Johnson who misses the game, presumably through injury.

Philippe Coutinho starts on the bench tonight after recovering from shoulder surgery which saw him sidelined for almost two months.

Substitutes: Jones, Coutinho, Moses, Kelly, Allen, Agger, Sterling.
