Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants payback for his side’s 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at Anfield earlier this season when they go head to head at the Emirates on Wednesday.

Liverpool would join Arsenal on 37 points with victory at the Emirates, a ground where they picked up three points last season.

The Reds will take extra motivation from the result of the reverse at Anfield earlier this season, when Arsenal outplayed their hosts and came away with a 2-0 victory.

Playmaker Santi Cazorla was particularly impressive that day, and Rodgers said: “They’ve got some wonderfully talented players, and Cazorla’s come in and done terrifically well in his first season.

“The game at Anfield was probably as poor as we’ve been. There were a number of reasons behind that. Psychologically we weren’t in a good moment, and rightly so we lost the game.

“But this is a chance to put it right. We’ll need to make sure everyone’s fighting, everyone’s together, and I’m sure we will be.

“We need to do better against the teams that are in the top half, there’s no denying that.”
