Gerrard on Arsenal: Liverpool must repeat what Chelsea, Man Utd did to them

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says they must do to Arsenal what Chelsea and Manchester United have already achieved.

After a run of five wins and two draws in their last seven league games, Liverpool would close to within two points of the Gunners with victory at the Emirates Stadium.

Gerrard told talkSPORT: "I'm sure Arsenal will be a bit of a wounded animal on Wednesday night.

"But we've certainly got to do what Manchester United and Chelsea have done to them, which is try and give them very little space and hit them on the counter attack. Everyone knows that if you give Arsenal time and space they will absolutely crucify you.

"It's a massive game for us and the target on Wednesday night is to try and get a result where we can push on and try and get third place. Obviously at the end of the season our target is a top-four finish, but if Arsenal give us any sniff of catching them then we want to grab it and hopefully that will be on Wednesday night."
