A victory over Arsenal at Anfield tomorrow could reignite Liverpool’s season, Patrik Berger feels.
The Reds have endured a tough start to 2017, having won just two of their 12 games in all competitions since the turn of the year.
Monday night’s 3-1 defeat to Leicester City left Jürgen Klopp’s side one point behind the Gunners, who currently sit fourth and have played a game fewer than Liverpool, ahead of this weekend’s round of Premier League fixtures.
Berger, then, sees the visit of Arsene Wenger’s team as an opportunity for his former club to put their recent struggles behind them while also laying down a marker in the race to qualify for the Champions League.
“I think it’s a huge game, because the boys haven’t been playing really well lately so it could turn the season around,” the ex-Czech Republic international told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Obviously Arsenal are really close to us so it’s a huge game. I’m really hoping for a good result.”
