The Uruguay international, who was linked with the Gunners during the summer, was unable to help the Merseyside outfit avoid a 2-0 loss to Arsenal at The Emirates earlier this season.

We didn’t have success at the Emirates, so our objective now is to win and I believe we have that chance

Suarez has scored 23 Premier League goals this season, helping Liverpool remain in pole position to secure a fourth-place finish ahead of their clash against the Premier League leaders.

“Arsenal are the leaders in the table and victory would be good for morale, give the whole squad an enormous injection and reduce the points difference at the top,” Suarez is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror.

“We didn’t have success at the Emirates, so our objective now is to win and I believe we have that chance.”

Suarez added that he is anticipating the Premier League title and top-four race to go down to the wire, with the Reds facing competition from Everton, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur for fourth spot.

“It’s rare that everything could be decided on the last day, but we must keep going and to ensure that happens we need results against the other main candidates,” added Suarez.
