Arsenal return to Premier League action after a two-week hiatus this weekend, and Arsène Wenger insists his side must be "straight back on it" when they face Liverpool.
The Gunners won their last six matches prior to the international break, and the manager is keen for them to pick up where they left off when Liverpool come to Emirates Stadium for Saturday's early kick-off. "It’s a big game and an opportunity for us to continue our run, which is what we want to do," Wenger said. "We are on a strong run and we just want to focus on winning our games, winning the next one. Liverpool is a big opponent but we play at the Emirates and we want to do it.

"You know after the international break it's always important that you come back and straight away you are on it." Victory for Arsenal would open up a nine-point gap over Liverpool, but Wenger is reluctant to speculate about how significant a win would be in the race for a top-four finish. "I'm not too much in mathematics now," he said. "We do that after the game. What is important is just for us to win the game and produce the performance. At the moment, I just want to make sure we have a quality performance and have a continuity of what we produced recently."
