Arsene Wenger’s midfield options are set to be bolstered with the return to fitness of Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Arteta and Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered minor injuries in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday but are not expected to miss significant time and should be available to play Liverpool on Saturday.

Oxlade-Chamberlain scored both goals against the Eagles in his first Premier League start since the opening weekend of the season, when he was injured in the defeat to Aston Villa.

Wilshere missed the win over Palace but the Gunners are said to be confident the England international will be available for the game against the Reds at Anfield.

Wenger will however be without Mathieu Flamini, who is suspended, and Aaron Ramsey and new signing Kim Kallstrom, both injured.

Thomas Vermaelen remains touch-and-go after his return from a knee injury was complicated by a thigh problem, the Telegraph adds.

Arsenal will go into the fixture with Liverpool top of the league after Manchester City were beaten by Chelsea on Monday evening.

Wenger’s side have a two-point lead over City and Chelsea, who are level, and are eight points clear of Brendan Rodgers’ fourth-place Merseysiders.
