Liverpool through the roller coaster and looking up again, says Klopp

Jurgen Klopp Says Liverpool, Himself Included, All Playing for Their Future Wenger warns Arsenal players: Don't dream about catching Chelsea

Liverpool put their disappointing defeat at Leicester behind them to move up to third place in the Premier League with a 3-1 home win over Arsenal, who dropped to fifth.

Liverpool, meanwhile, welcome Arsenal to Anfield in a match that Klopp's men must win if they are to maintain their challenge for a Champions League position. He saw a good team that hasn't lost to a fellow top six foe all season.

Arsene Wenger raised eyebrows when he left Alexis Sanchez on the bench, starting Danny Welbeck, while Mesut Ozil missed the match through illness. Manchester City, Manchester United and even Arsenal all have at least a game in hand on them and so, the race for top four is going to be something that will go down the wire this season.

But they were back in contention after 56 minutes - and it was Sanchez who created the goal. But not when the best player on the team is sitting for no reason. Arsenal just need to stay in the game in the first 20 minutes and if they can do that they will have an excellent chance of getting a positive result. "We really felt bad last week, we needed a few days to understand what happened". "It is an opportunity we want to take", manager Arsene Wenger said. They were woefully naive in Monday's defeat by Leicester, allowing Jamie Vardy to counter-attack them.

Liverpool picked up only two wins in the last twelve games - against Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup and 2-0 against Tottenham two rounds ago. With that, and his creativity, Alexis' teammates were allowed to run free, get the ball in unsafe places and, in the case of Danny Welbeck, finish exquisitely.

Wenger tried to rectify his mistake at half-time by sending on Sanchez for Francis Coquelin and, after Giroud's header was tipped on to the crossbar by Simon Mignolet, the Chile global made his mark.

"We should not forget that we are able to do things like we did today and we will work on it", Klopp told BT Sport.

Against Arsenal, Liverpool's fluid attacking quartet of Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana cut the north Londoners to ribbons in front of an impassioned Klopp at a buoyant Anfield.

Arsenal have suffered repetitive problems with their back four over many seasons, and fans have become disillusioned with their lack of bite in the second half of campaigns.

Leicester host Hull in the pivotal game regarding relegation battlers on Saturday with the Foxes seeking to prove the dynamic performance in the win over Liverpool was not a one-off.

Maybe Wenger's grand plan was to only play Sanchez for one half or not at all so he'd be full strength for the Champions League contest with Bayern Munich.
