After a week off, a week that saw Arsenal stay in fourth only thanks to Leicester City finally remembering they’re defending champions, Arsenal are back at work this week, traveling up to Liverpool for a Saturday morning/afternoon (delete as appropriate to your time zone) clash.

Anfield, Stanley Park, Liverpool
Arsenal are fourth, but only hold that position over Liverpool by a single point. A win here would see Arsenal get to second place, at least until Sunday when Tottenham take on Everton and Manchester City play Sunderland. A loss to Liverpool and wins from Spurs and City would see Arsenal in sixth, but more importantly three points out of fourth place (albeit with a game in hand over Liverpool). Certainly not an insurmountable gap, but also not ideal.
Given the pile of freshly-healthy Gunners available, I’d guess this would be as close to a “normal” Arsenal as we’d hope to see.
