The Gunners, who successfully shut out Suarez in a 2-0 win over the Reds back in November, head to Merseyside two points clear at the top of the Premier League table following Chelsea’s victory at Manchester City on Monday.
What you want on our side is a strong defensive performance and to dominate
Arsenal had a big-money bid for Suarez turned down by Liverpool over the summer, but Wenger insists that he has no regrets over the failed transfer, despite the Uruguay forward having gone on to score 23 league goals in 19 games.
“For us, the important thing is to win the game,” Wenger said. “The fact is that what happened in the summer has nothing to do with that.
“If you want to win the game, what is for sure is that he’s one of the players that you have to keep quiet.
“Liverpool have a strong offensive force with [Daniel] Sturridge, with Suárez, with [Philippe] Coutinho, with [Raheem] Sterling behind. All these players can score goals and make a difference.
“That [keeping Suárez and Sturridge quiet] will be one of our targets of course but at Liverpool the task might be a bit more difficult.
You have to wait until the end of February to have the exact idea of who will fight for the Premier League
“What you want on our side is a strong defensive performance and to dominate, to leave them as few balls as possible. The philosophy on our side has to be the same: to master the ball and to dominate the game.”
Asked about the Suarez transfer saga, Wenger continued: “No, there are no regrets. You have sometimes regrets when a player played for you, and scores goals or does well somewhere else [but] he was never our player. It is just a situation that did not come off and that is it.”
And the Frenchman also stated his belief that the Premier League title race is too close to call at present.
He added: “I said that you have to wait until the end of February to have the exact idea of who will fight for the Premier League.
“It’s an important month for many teams and maybe you will need a little bit of patience.”
