The Gunners were close to losing all three points against Liverpool on Wednesday when the Reds took a two-goal lead after an hour of play, but Arsene Wenger's team managed to come back to clinch a 2-2 draw at the Emirates.
Despite their fightback, the North London side reside four points away from a Champions League spot in the table, while their weekend's opponents can improve their place in the top 10 with a scalp.
