With that in mind, Wenger may be tempted to recall Arsenal stalwart Laurent Koscielny, who missed the Southampton game through injury.

Any failure from Liverpool to secure maximum points would give Arsenal the opportunity to rise into the top-four in midweek, as the Gunners are due to play Sunderland before finishing their Premier League campaign at home to Everton. However, we can be in no doubt this is probably going to be the most hard of the three and if we don't pick up the three points our chances of a top four finish are pretty slim.

We know we have to play to win the games, so let's keep the focus on the way we want to play and on our team spirit", via BBC Sport.

"Stoke have only won one of their past nine games but are still in the running for a top-half finish".

They have 41 points with two matches remaining.

"They won 13 football matches on the trot, 13 in the Premier League, the hardest league in the world".
