Reds Look To Halt Arsenal's Progress

Liverpool are off down South on Saturday evening as they prepare to face rivals Arsenal. The Reds have had a far better start to the season than anyone expected and I think it's fair to say so too have Arsene Wenger's side. Arsenal are currently top of the pile on 22 points with both Chelsea and ourselves tightly behind them on 20 points.

Reds Look To Redeem Themselves At Arsenal

Thankfully for Liverpool the injury situation is looking a lot better. Glen Johnson, Jose Enrique and Pepe Reina should all be available to start on Wednesday . For Arsenal they are without ex Everton man Mikel Arteta, Fabianski and Coquelin who are all still recovering from injuries. Also unavailable is Gervinho who is at the African Cup Of Nations.

The last time Liverpool and Arsenal met was in September last year. The match at Anfield ended badly for Liverpool who succumbed to a 2-0 defeat. Our last visit to the Emirates though makes for more positive reading, in August 2011 Liverpool won the match 2-0 after an own goal and a Luis Suarez effort.

Both teams…
