Teams and preview – Arsenal can run riot against Liverpool back three!

JUst as Louis van Gaal did when taking on Arsenal a month or so ago, the Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has tried to fix his leaky defence and cope with a few injury problems by changing the formation of the team and going to three at the back.

But it has not exactly been a success so far, with three goals shipped against Man United this week and Bournemouth in midweek causing them all sorts of problems but finishing poorly. But despite that and the loss of Dejan Lovren to injury, Rodgers is sticking with the plan, bringing Sakho in to replace him.
