Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling insists the Reds will be fully prepared to tackle Arsenal next weekend, despite recording a disappointing result yesterday.
Brendan Rodgers' men had thrashed Everton 4-0 in the midweek Merseyside derby, but followed that up dropping two points by drawing 1-1 against West Brom. With Everton winning their own weekend game, Liverpool almost undid all of their good midweek work.
Now the pressure is back on for Saturday's clash with Arsenal, but Sterling is sure the Reds will have regained their focus by the time the Gunners come to town.
"The whole team is disappointed not to get the three points against West Brom", Sterling told his club's official site.
"The manager told us that we tried to play football and that's the most important thing.
"Hopefully we can cut the mistakes out of our game and be right up there at the end of the season. We'll just pick up and go again for the next game."
Arsenal have not lost at Anfield once in their last five trips to the ground, winning three of those games.
