The Emirates Stadium plays host to Arsenal versus Liverpool on Saturday night.

Chelsea's shock 5-2 defeat at home to Sam Allardyce's West Brom holds even more emphasis for the Reds and potentially the Gunners.

A lot has changed since the 3-1 at Anfield with Jurgen Klopp's bid to win back-to-back Premier League title's derailed after a forgettable January and February. 

Mikel Arteta's side on the other hand are trying to rebuild under the Spaniard. Currently sat in ninth a win would take them to within a point of today's opposition.

However, three points for Liverpool would obviously be a welcome boost but also increase their chances of securing a top-four spot, come the end of the season. 

A stark contrast from just under a month ago when relegation-threatened Fulham left Merseyside with a surprising win following Mario Lemina's strike on the stroke of half-time.

The Premier League champions can't have their eyes wandering elsewhere with a tough Champions League quarter-final clash with Real Madrid following the rejuvenation of their qualification for next season's top European competition via the league.

Three weeks have passed since the last time the Reds walked out for a Premier League fixture, the only goal of the game came from Diogo Jota who returned to Molineux to slay his former club, Wolves. 

A fightback from tonight's host saw them gain a share of the spoils after West Ham raced into a 3-0 lead, before Tomas Soucek's own goal seven minutes before half-time. Alexandre Lacazette's equaliser seven minutes from time was enough to salvage a draw.
