The Gunners and the Reds have both had disappointing seasons and the fixture this evening presents an opportunity to give either side much-needed points in the fight for European places.
Last time out in the league hosts Arsenal drew 3-3 with fifth place West Ham, while Liverpool's last league outing saw them defeat Wolves 1-0. Arsenal may see the return of Willan after he missed the West Ham match. Meanwhile Liverpool could have a helping hand as they may see the return of striker Roberto Firmino which would boost the team as they are still without key players Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joe Matip.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has made it clear that this match counts and they can't afford to slip up. He said: “We don’t have a lot of points to waste any more but we have a tough programme on top of that, not only in the Premier League but the Champions League as well. We will not hesitate, we will just go for it and hopefully we can do that on Saturday."
