Mamadou Sakho is set to make his first Liverpool start since September when Arsenal arrive at Anfield on Sunday.

The Frenchman replaced Dejan Lovren at half time as Liverpool beat Championship leaders Bournemouth 3-1 away from home last night, with the Croatian reported to have suffered a groin injury.

Brendan Rodgers has deployed a 3-4-3 system in his last two matches, and looks set to continue with that formation when the Gunners arrive at Anfield.

That would see Sakho start only his fourth match of the season alongside both Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure, with summer signing Lovren set to be assessed by Liverpool medics.

Rodgers said: “We will just see and assess that.

“He had a little sort of nick in his groin and we will see how that is.”
