While the Gunners will be looking to make it 11 consecutive games without defeat.

And speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday, Arteta who was then asked about Arsenal’s poor Anfield record said: “It’s been a while (since Arsenal last won at Anfield), as you mentioned, so it’s time to do it again.

“I have experienced both, winning and losing and I know why you lose matches at Anfield and which is the mindset emotionally and the preparation that you need to go there convinced and make sure that you are at the races to compete in that stadium.”

A win for Arsenal( on 20 points) will see them leapfrog Liverpool (22 points) into the top four.
