Boris Mellor from www.arsenaltimes.com provides the view from The Emirates ahead of Sunday's clash.
You're flying at the moment but you haven't got the best record at Anfield. How are you feeling about this one?
Well, you caught us after the international week last season. I think we will be far better prepared this time. Nothing succeeds like success, so the lads should be up for it.
Your success this season has surprised many - what's behind it?
Last season is what is behind it. If Wenger hadn't played the reserves in the final game we would have finished third. Everybody raved about our performance in the Carling Cup, then injuries and suspensions hit us and we were written off. In fact, we finished the season quite strongly without any real strikers. Henry and RvP were injured, Adebayor suspended. Now we have lots of strikers even with RvP injured. In other words the foundations were put down a few years ago, and the shoots began to show last season. Bacary Sagna has also had a stablising effect on the defence whilst improving the attack.
Is this the best football Arsenal have ever played? How does it compare with the unbeaten season?
It's great football, but it's only a quarter of a season. I would rather answer that at the end of the campaign.
What are your weaknesses?
Our defence can still go to sleep if the midfield is not getting to grips with the game.
Is this the first real test of your title credentials?
Aspirations, not credentials. We have already beaten Man City who are in third place, but this is a six pointer. A victory would certainly help. Nonetheless, last year we beat Man Utd twice and they won the league. We need to beat the bottom 10 teams, that's how Man Utd do it.
Who will you be worried about?
Dirk Kuyt. Also, will Steven Gerrard win a penalty?
We all know about Fabregas - but who else do we need to look out for?
Hleb is our revelation this season, and if Theo plays his pace will amaze.
What's the score going to be?
Two one to the Arsenal.
And how's the top four going to look come May?
Very early to comment, but I will give my crystal ball a go: Arsenal and Man Utd will be the top two. The next two places will be between Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea.
