Can we do Wenger’s men, Reds?
With Martin Skrtel and Steven Gerrard suspended, and Arsenal in excellent form – there’s no doubt that we face an extremely difficult battle against the Gunners at the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime.
However, we’ve shown time and time again throughout the years that on our day, we can beat anybody.
Here’s five reasons we can do it on Saturday, too.
Lucas is back, fit and ready for the midfield battle of his life…
The Brazilian has been out of action since limping out of the Merseyside derby, but he trained throughout the international break – and will surely play a huge part from now until the end of the season. Lucas thrives during big matches, when defensive discipline is a midfield necessity. His performances in two direct battles against Nemanja Matic this season – in which he’s come out on top – prove this. The 28-year-old will provide us the base and tactical structure we’ll need at the Emirates. If he can stop Santi Cazorla from playing, and nip in with tackles and interceptions – one of our better passers can feed our rapid attackers ahead.
