Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted his side are not in the race, with simply finishing in the top four their focus.

But that is not a view shared by Wenger.


He told his club's official site: "Liverpool are in the race.

"I think they are eight points behind us so of course they are in in there.

"They have a strong offensive potential as we know.

"I believe the quality of our defensive game will be very important in the end result on Saturday afternoon."

Liverpool have a number of home games to come against teams around them in the Premier League, with visits from, after Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Newcastle and Manchester City.
