Arteta on the reasons behind our recent form

Victory over Leicester City on Sunday made it five wins in a row for the Gunners, the first time we had strung together as many wins in the Premier League since the end of last season.

Mikel Arteta knows the size of the task facing us if we want to make it six on Wednesday night, but believes the team are currently enjoying their best spell since he took over in late 2019.

"I think with the level of consistency throughout the game and throughout a run of games, I would say yes," the boss said at his press conference on Tuesday.

"We are playing better, we have an understanding of what we want. We have the right level of confidence, belief and understanding with each other and everything clicks better and quicker

"Every week is a test in the Premier League and a very different one, and the challenges that you face in those games are completely different, but tomorrow certainly is a team that dominates every aspect of the game, so when that happens you have to be at your best."

The only game we have lost in the last 11 games was against Manchester City on New Year's Day, although the way we approached the game against the league leaders that day can give cause for optimism against Liverpool - who go into the game four points behind Pep Guardiola's side.

"You need that type of performance and then you need a result," Arteta said. "The reason why we didn't get that result against City was because we didn't dominate every single aspect of the game. The moment that you open the door, you know you will be punished. Tomorrow we are going to have to play at least at that level, or better and control every single scenario."
