Aly Cissokho has called on Liverpool to make Arsenal uncomfortable in their FA Cup fifth-round clash at The Emirates on Sunday.

The Reds, who are currently fourth and two points behind second-placed Arsenal, were emphatic 5-1 winners against Arsene Wenger’s men at Anfield in the Premier League last weekend.

We have to make sure we profit from their drop in form

Arsenal have managed to win one of their last four top-flight games, and Cissokho, who is on a season-long loan from Valencia, wants Liverpool to profit on the north London side’s current dip in form.

“It will be very tough mentally for them after losing the game like they did last week,” Cissokho told reporters. “It’s a difficult run for them and they’re not in the best run of form at the moment.

“We have to make sure we profit from their drop in form and don’t let them develop their game, get on top from the first tackle and make them uncomfortable.

“In their mind they must be thinking of Bayern too. We have to get on top early.”

Cissokho has made one assist in 13 Premier League appearances since his loan move to Liverpool from Los Che.
