Liverpool have axed goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from their matchday squad to face Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds shot-stopper, who had previously been declared as the club’s undisputed number one, has been left out entirely by boss Jurgen Klopp in favour of Loris Karius and deputy Danny Ward.

Arsenal arrive at Anfield with Alexis Sanchez back in contention following an abdominal strain which has seen him ruled out of his side’s opening two fixtures.

The Gunners will be hoping to avoid consecutive away defeats after losing to Stoke City last weekend as they attempt to get their season back on track.

Unsettled Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho misses out again, while Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne are also absent due to injury.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have been boosted by the return of defender Laurent Koscielny after the French defender completed his three-game suspension.

Take a look at the confirmed teams below.

Liverpool XI: Karius, Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Subs: Ward, Klavan, Alexander-Arnold, Grujic, Milner, Solanke, Sturridge

Arsenal XI: Cech, Holding, Monreal, Koscielny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xhaka, Bellerin, Ramsey, Sanchez, Ozil, Welbeck

Subs: Lacazette, Giroud, Ospina, Walcott, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Coquelin
