However one thing to remember is that clubs do far fewer updates than normal at this time of year concerning injuries so the data may not be 100% up to date.   Here is our list derived from

PLAYER What’s wrong Return News
Monreal Tight Hamstring December 29 “It’s starting to be a muscular problem. I hope it’s not big, and I hope he can be with us next week.”
Mkhitaryan Metatarsal Fracture February Expected to return to full training in six weeks.
Bellerin Calf Strain January 9 “Expected to return to full training in two weeks.”
Mustafi Hamstring Injury December 29
Holding ACL Knee Injury No Return Date Six months out
Welbeck Ankle Injury No return information
Mavropanos Groin Strain January 5 He is now training again

It would be a great surprise if any of those players even made the beach for a play around with a ball at half time.

As for Liverpool they have Milner and Moreno out as slight doubts with Matip, Gomez, Solanke and Oxlade Chamberlain all out.

Mr Emery said of Liverpool that they could go all season unbeaten “because they are doing it at the moment. We played against Liverpool three seasons ago with Sevilla in the final of the Europa League and I look at this progress and they are a very good example.

“This progress is also one example for us, now, in our moment. But we need to be very, very demanding of ourselves to do this step quickly in our way.

“But we need also time and sometimes the patience is very important for us.”

In short I don’t think he is going to be panicing if Arsenal do suffer another defeat.  Not least because going even half a season unbeaten, as Liverpool have just done is incredibly unusual.  The only teams to have done this are

Arsenal in 2003-04: Arsenal took the league with 26 wins and 12 draws, but no defeats.

Manchester United in 2010-11.  Manchester United won the league with 23 wins, 11 draws and four defeats.

Manchester City in 2017-18.  Manchester City won the league with 32 wins, four draws and two defeats.

So it is looking from this like a Liverpool title.
