Arsene Wenger says Arsenal must prove their strength at Emirates Stadium when they face Liverpool on Monday night.
The Gunners lost their first home game of the season to West Ham United, but responded well to win away at Crystal Palace last weekend.
Wenger believes home form can define how successful a campaign will be, and called on his side to deliver against Brendan Rodgers’ team.
"If you want to have a successful season you want to be strong at home"
“If you want to have a successful season you want to be strong at home,” Wenger said. “Normally we are strong at home. This is an opportunity to show that.
“We missed our first game and we had to look at ourselves, and we responded very well. Now we need to come back to our usual strength that we have at home.
“Your confidence is linked with your last result and at Crystal Palace we responded well. You could see that we were a bit edgy at times but we responded in a very strong way. From that we should have enough confidence to go into the game positively against Liverpool.
“This is a very important game where the result will of course be vital. It’s not a result that will decide [our title chances] but in our heads we know it’s very important.”
