Cissokho insists there is a belief within the squad that they can make this a season to remember.
"We'll take it one match at a time, but we have started well, and we are near the top of the league," he told Liverpoolfc.com.
"We have players in the squad like Kolo Toure, Steven Gerrard, Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel, who have plenty of experience and who have started in some big European matches as well. We are at one of the biggest clubs in the world and they motivate everyone.
"In every match, we set out to take all three points, to stay near the top of the rankings, so as to finish the season strongly.
"I think if we could get the three points against Arsenal it would send a strong message to the other teams in the competition.
"There are a lot of matches to go, the season is long and there will be difficult matches. The tough ones can be against the lower teams in the league, where you might think of having a more relaxed outing.
"But if you're setting out to qualify for the Champions League through a domestic league like the Premier League, you really have to concentrate and remain serious for each match, whether it's against a team from the lower end of the table or one right at the top."
