Liverpool on the other hand, are in the Top Four places in the league, but are winless in their last two domestic games. They had let a two goal lead slip to draw 2-2 against Brighton and Hove Albion, before succumbing to their first defeat of the season when they lost 3-1 to the high flying West Ham United.

Liverpool have shown their defence is still vulnerable, letting in goals almost every Matchday. The Gunners can capitalize on this, since their attackers are enjoying a new lease of life in front of goal.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and his lads have come up short in the big games they have featured in this season. They fell 2-0 to Chelsea in the North West London derby and were walloped 5-0 by Manchester City. The only seemingly big game they won was the 3-1 success against fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspurs - which can't be said to be a big game, as Spurs were also undergoing their own struggles which resulted in the change of coaches.

Liverpool have been decent against the Big Boys this season. They have drawn with Chelsea (1-1) and with Manchester City (2-2) but enjoyed a wonderful 5-0 bashing of Manchester United some weeks ago. But having faltered against the lesser lights, they will be looking to bounce back with a statement victory over Arsenal.
