Bernd Leno is set to get the nod over Petr Cech to play in goal for Arsenal against Liverpool, the Daily Mail reports.

Cech returned to the side against Blackpool in the Carabao Cup in midweek and is now fully fit.

But the Mail say Arsenal boss Unai Emery is set to go with summer signing Leno for this weekend’s game and that the number one spot is now the German’s to lose.

Meanwhile, there continues to be speculation over the future of Eden Hazard.

The Daily Telegraph claim Chelsea want to take advantage of the uncertainty at Real Madrid by opening contract talks with Hazard.

Real have been repeatedly been linked with Hazard, who is said to be waiting for a sign from them that they intend to pursue a deal to buy him.

But with the Spanish club in the process of finding a new manager, the Telegraph suggest Chelsea will try to secure Hazard’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge.

The newspaper reports that his advisers have recently visited London and Chelsea want to set up meetings with them but that there are fears inside the club that Hazard intends to fulfil his dream of playing for Real and will seek a move.
