Arsene Wenger’s side are a point ahead of Liverpool in 4th place and also have a game in hand.

Liverpool meanwhile will be desperate to bounce back to winning ways following a humiliating defeat at the hands of an out-of-form Leicester City on Monday night.

Arsenal come into this weekend’s encounter following two weeks rest and a 2-0 win over Sutton United in the FA Cup.

Mesut Ozil has come under fire from both fans and pundits in recent weeks. The Germany international has provided eight assists and scored nine goals in 29 apperances for the Gunners this season but has failed to find the back of the net in 2017.
