Liverpool have a chance to boost their top four hopes.


Brendan Rodgers has been under immense pressure due to Liverpool's unimpressive start to the season. The Merseyside club are 11th in the Premier League table, eighteen points behind table toppers Chelsea and seven points away from West Ham who are in fourth place.

During midweek, Liverpool beat Bournemouth 3-1 in the Capital One Cup, which was a good result after coming off a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.

The Merseysiders face Arsene Wenger's side who have scored eight goals in their last two fixtures on Sunday and former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp reckons Liverpool have a chance to boost their top four hopes with a victory at Anfield on Sunday.

"Liverpool’s win over Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday was a good result – but only if they beat Arsenal on Super Sunday can we truly say they’ve turned the corner," Jamie Redknapp told Sky Sports.

"Bournemouth are top of the Championship but made six changes for the quarter-final in midweek. Arsenal have scored eight in their last two and will give us a far better gauge of where Liverpool are.

"Liverpool need a big performance, a game-changing moment in their season, which will leave everyone talking about them as genuine contenders for a top-four finish. A win over Arsenal could do just that."

Last season Liverpool won this same tie 5-1 which was arguably their best performance but without Daniel Sturrdige and Luis Suarez, a repeat of that wouldn’t be possible.
