While most of the talk about Arsenal today will revolve around the Champions League competition, which the Gunners are still in while our next Premier League opponents Liverpool crashed out at the group stage despite am easy looking draw.
Brendan Rodgers and his beleaguered players are looking bereft of belief at the minute and will be hoping that another cup competition this week can help them get some of that back. But I think their Capital One cup quarter-final on Wednesday is more likely to help Arsenal.
They may have a tie against a lower league club, but it is an away tie and their opponents Bournemouth are probably as confident and in form as Liverpool are struggling at the minute. They put five past Cardiff at the weekend to move to the top of the Championship and will be buzzing and full of team spirit.
Rodgers meanwhile, has alluded to problems in the Anfield dressing room and has somehow got to raise them for a really tricky looking game. But even if they win, people will say they should have. The ideal situation for us is if the game goes to extra time and penalties and Liverpool still lose.
That they will be even more dispirited and lacking in confidence when the Gunners arrive on Sunday and they will be heavy legged as well. It could well be that the extra midweek games in Europe this season are a big reason for their struggles to perform and while we now have a week to prepare, they have another game they could do without.
Even if Liverpool beat Bournemouth, Arsenal fans should not have to worry about a repeat of our pasting at Anfield last season. Back then they were on a roll and bursting with confidence and they simply blew us away from the start. This time they will be more worried about stopping our attacking players.
I have a good feeling that Arsenal will be joining Man United in getting our revenge on the scousers. What do you think Gooners?
