Skrtel out to topple Arsenal

Martin Skrtel is anticipating a tough game against Arsenal on Saturday but believes Liverpool have the strength to come out on top.

Arsenal are currently two points clear at the Premier League summit and will be looking to further boost their title chances when they visit Anfield for a lunchtime kick-off.

Skrtel feels home advantage could be key for the Reds as they aim to return to winning form following a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

"I am disappointed to be honest; we scored early and controlled the game but we only have a single point," the defender told Liverpool's official website.

"We made a mistake but this is football and this can obviously happen to any one of us.

"However, I am confident we can beat Arsenal because we definitely have the strength to do so.

"They are the leaders at the moment but we can give them a hard time.

"It won't be an easy game but I am sure we can do something in front of our fans."
