Arsenal vs. Liverpool: Preview and TV schedule

Michael Regan

After suffering a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool two weeks ago, the Gunners are out for some revenge in this FA Cup fifth round match-up.

The second match-up of top four teams in the Premier League occurs Sunday at the Emirates Stadium as Liverpool and Arsenal meet to try and decide who will advance to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.

The Gunners haven't been playing well of late, including a 5-1 loss at the hands of this Liverpool side earlier this month. While this match won't affect league position, a win by Arsene Wenger's side could serve the dual purpose of giving his players a confidence boost and a measure of revenge against the Reds. The biggest issue facing Wenger though is who to play and who to rest with a Champions League match coming in the midweek.

Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool meanwhile are brimming with confidence after two straight league victories. The Reds could get a boost at the back as well with Glen Johnson potentially set to make his return after an extended absence.

The teams split their league matches this season and have met 17 times before in the FA Cup.
