Arteta and Odegaard confident Arsenal's form can upset Liverpool amid City chase


Liverpool face Arsenal in a crucial Premier League clash at the Emirates on Wednesday night

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has sent a warning to the Reds ahead of the Wednesday night's Premier League clash.

The Gunners moved into the top four and leapfrogged Manchester United following their 2-0 win over Leicester City on Sunday evening.

It took them to five wins from their last five league games and they're in fine form heading into the crucial tie against Jurgen Klopp's side.

Arteta says his team will need to 'believe they can beat Liverpool' if they're to cause an upset in their push for the title.

"That’s a different level now. We have to take the game into a new standard to have a chance to beat them," he said after the win over Leicester City.

"We know that and we are going to prepare tomorrow how we can beat them and how we can believe that we can beat them which is crucial to be able to beat them."

The Arsenal boss isn't the only one full of confidence following the result against the Foxes, as Martin Odegaard once again put in an impressive display.

The Norway international admitted there is a 'lot of confidence in the team now' compared to earlier in the campaign when they were struggling for form.

"We have a very strong belief in the group and play with a lot of confidence," Odegaard told Sky Sports . "We just have to keep going.

"We have a lot of confidence in the team now and everyone believes in what we are doing. We are strong as a team and that is the most important thing."

Liverpool haven't lost to the Gunners in their three meetings so far this term, winning two and drawing just one in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie.

Should Manchester City beat Crystal Palace on Monday night, a win against Arsenal on Wednesday would maintain the three-point deficit heading into the business end of the season.
