Merson believes that the Reds, despite their injury struggles, will provide a tough challenge for the Gunners but the North London side will eventually prevail 2-1 on Merseyside.

He writes in prediction column for Sky Sports: “If this was Liverpool v Crystal Palace, then I would say I might fancy Palace, but you know Liverpool will be running round like you have never seen before.

“You look at the way they have played recently and you can bet they won’t be anything like that against Arsenal.

“That’s what you’re up against when you are at a top team like Arsenal; other teams lift their game against you.

“I am sure Liverpool will raise their game but they are struggling to put a team out with all the injuries and I think Arsenal have to win these kind of matches if they are going to win the Premier League. I don’t think Liverpool have got enough players at the moment and Arsenal need to win before facing Stoke and Chelsea.”
