Samir Nasri has been included in Arsenal's squad to face Liverpool despite reportedly being on the verge of a move to Manchester City.

The France international's move to City is apparently moving ever closer but he is in contention after recovering from illness.

The Gunners will be without suspended duo Gervinho and Alex Song while defenders Johan Djourou, Kieran Gibbs (both hamstring) and Armand Traore (groin) are not available either. Midfielder Tomas Rosicky (thigh) will be rested, while Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby (ankle) are still out.

Defender Glen Johnson is the only injury doubt for Liverpool.

The England defender missed last week's opening match with a hamstring injury and manager Kenny Dalglish rates him as his only doubt for the trip to the Emirates Stadium.

Dalglish may opt to make changes with Martin Kelly and Dirk Kuyt pushing for starting places.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Sagna, Arshavin, Frimpong, Nasri, Ramsey, Walcott, Van Persie, Fabianski, Chamakh, Chamberlain, Bendtner, Lansbury, Squillaci, Miquel, Afobe.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Kelly, Carragher Agger, Enrique, Adam, Lucas, Kuyt, Suarez, Downing, Carroll, Doni, Flanagan, Skrtel, Henderson, Meireles, Spearing, Ngog, Robinson, Aurelio, Rodriguez.
