Liverpool vs Arsenal – WSL Preview: TV Channel, Live Stream, Predicted Lineups and Prediction

Fresh off their emphatic dismissal from European champions Lyon on Wednesday night, Arsenal return to WSL action on Sunday with a trip to Liverpool.

The Gunners got off to a dream start to their Champions League group stage campaign with a 5-1 victory over the reigning European champions and will be looking to maintain their flawless start to the league season when they visit Merseyside.

They face a Liverpool side looking to return to winning ways, having failed to score or pick up a point since their upset win over WSL champions Chelsea on the opening day of the season.

Leanne Kiernan remains out for a long time at Liverpool after undergoing ankle surgery in September. Shanice van de Sanden continues to look forward to her second Reds debut, and Matt Beard describes the forward as a couple of weeks away from making her her comeback.

Ceri Holland is set to return to the starting XI, having started on the bench against Tottenham last time out.

Liverpool (3-4-3): laws; Flaherty, Fahey, Matthews; Koivisto, Kearns, Holland, Hinds; Daniels, Stengel, Lawley.

Arsenal remain without first-choice central defender pair Leah Williamson and Rafaelle, who are sidelined with foot injuries. Lotte Wubben-Moy and fullback Steph Catley have filled in for the pair during the Gunners’ last two outings.

Frida Maanum entered the starting XI in place of Vivianne Miedema for Arsenal’s resounding victory over Lyon, rewarding Jonas Eidevall’s decision with a player-of-the-match performance. Maanum’s inclusion against Lyon was overtly tactical: it will be interesting to see if she keeps her place against Liverpool after such an impressive display.

Arsenal (4-3-3): Zinsberger; Wienroither, Wubben-Moy, Catley, McCabe; Walti, Little, Maanum; Mead, Blackstenius, Foord.

Liverpool are yet to score in open play in the WSL this season, with Kiernan and Van de Sanden missing heavily for Matt Beard’s side in the final third.

The Reds could struggle to topple an Arsenal riding the crest of a wave following their historic Champions League victory over Lyon.

Score prediction: Liverpool 0-2 Arsenal
