A big game for both clubs, with their fortunes having reversed somewhat in recent weeks. A tough game awaits, though, with Arsenal away a fixture in which Liverpool wins are now a rarity, and no doubt Arshavin’s will suddenly start shooting straight again. The Gunners are vulnerable to counter-attacks, and if Torres was fit I’d fancy a long-overdue Reds victory at the Emirates, but as it stands I’d be more than happy with a draw. The temptation, though, is to get seduced by the chance to close the gap to just two points – a lovely idea, but pretty unlikely, even with Arsenal not at their best.
