Arsenal entertain Liverpool at the Emirates in the weekend's biggest Premier League fixture.
Much is at stake as the Gunners who are third look to extend a four point gap from the Reds who are fifth in the race for the Champions League.
Every omen is against the visitors who are without captain Steven Gerrard and defensive stalwart Martin Skrtel - both banned for three matches for stamping during their disappointing 2-1 loss at Anfield against fellow top four rivals Manchester United before the international break.
That said they welcome back Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling who were injury doubts after missing out on England's mid-week draw against Italy.
Eyes will be on Sterling in particular to see if he exhibits any nerves after his BBC interview regarding his contract issues courted much criticism. He is expected to play as fellow attacking midfielder Adam Lallana is still out with a groin injury.
The home side have several injuries of their own: Mikel Arteta, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, Mathieu Debuchy, Abou Diaby and Jack Wilshere won't play despite returning to training.
Nonetheless that should not dent Arsenal's confidence. They are the Premier League's most in-form club in 2015 gaining 27 points and have a brilliant record against their opposition, losing only once in 18 games at the Emirates - a 2-0 loss in 2011 - and that was when the Gunners were severely depleted fielding many youngsters.
However, Liverpool have been the second best Premier League side in 2015 gaining 26 points - one behind Arsenal - and prior to their 2-1 loss against United two weeks ago, the Reds were the only team to remain unbeaten in the league since the 2015.
GOAL! Did somebody say comeback? Not on Olivier Giroud's watch. Emre Can's sending off for Liverpool completely ended their momentum and Giroud powered home a shot from the edge of the box to make Arsenal's win even more emphatic.
Watch the goal below:
The start of the second half has seen a few changes from both sides. Liverpool have removed Lazar Markovic - who created two out of his sides three chances in the first half - and replaced him with star striker Daniel Sturridge.
That change has seen Liverpool switch to a flat back four with Emre Can moving from the right side of centre back to a fully fledged right back. Raheem Sterling has also changed positions to left wing.
Arsenal changed Laurent Koscienly for Gabriel Paulista. As if yet it is unknown if this is tactical or due to injury. Around the hour mark Aaron Ramsey was taken off for Mathieu Flamini. The Welshman went down earlier with an injury and might have been taken off as a precaution.
Have Arsenal just ended Liverpool's top four hopes in eight minutes? Wonder strikes from Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez seem to suggest so.
Watch the goals below:
If you needed more details on Liverpool have turned the tables on Arsenal turned to the right -------->
The first opportunity was in the 21st minute. It was virtually an open goal after Markovic slid in Sterling inside the box, but the pass was overhit as the England international struggled in vain to reach the ball.
The second was in the 24th minute. A misplaced pass from a Santi Cazorla allowed Sterling to have a chance on goal. He nutmegged Laurent Koscienly in the process but he dragged his shot wide from outside the box.
