Steven Gerrard doesn’t expect Liverpool’s 5-1 rout of Arsenal last weekend to have any bearing on their FA Cup tie at The Emirates on Sunday.

The Reds continued their momentum at Fulham on Wednesday night as Liverpool came from behind twice before Gerrard netted the winner from the penalty spot to seal a 3-2 win in injury time.

We’re expecting a tight game at the Emirates and I think the 5-1 game will have no bearing on this game coming

Arsene Wenger’s side remained in second place following a goalless stalemate with Manchester United at Emirates Stadium.

And Gerrard warned Liverpool to expect a very different Arsenal side in the FA Cup, with the Reds skipper tipping the Gunners to come out fighting.

“Top sides, when they get beat 5-1, they are hurt,” Gerrard said when asked about their cup tie against Arsenal.

“They have just battled to a 0-0 draw against Manchester United so they have showed they have defended quite well in the game.

“We’re expecting a tight game at the Emirates and I think the 5-1 game will have no bearing on this game coming. We’re expecting a really tough game.

“It’s a break from the league and we’ll go there and give it everything we’ve got because we want a good cup run.”
