North London side Arsenal are eyeing a sixth straight win on the Premier League stage ahead of their rescheduled home game with Liverpool on Wednesday night. The Gunners were initially scheduled to play hosts to Liverpool around two weeks ago before the game was called off after they reached the Carabao Cup final.

Liverpool had reached the Carabao Cup final by beating Arsenal 2-0 on aggregate and they faced another London club in Chelsea in the final at the iconic Wembley Stadium. Liverpool were able to emerge as the new Carabao Cup champions in the place of Manchester City who had won the last four editions after seeing off Chelsea on penalties.
Arsenal stand in the way of Liverpool and their quest to add the Premier League title to their Carabao Cup title. The two teams are the best in terms of their current form in the Premier League as they are ahead of the other teams over the last eight games. Liverpool have won their last eight games, while Arsenal have won six of their last eight games including the last five.

The Arsenal run of five successive league games started on the back of the disappointing goalless draw at home to Burnley who are in the bottom three and fighting to stay in the Premier League this season. Since the Burnley game, North London giants Arsenal have beaten fellow top-four chasers Wolverhampton Wanderers twice, fellow London team Brentford, neighbours Watford and Leicester City.
Arsenal were on a four-match winning run in the league before they played hosts to Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening and they were able to extend that winning league run to five games thanks to the 2-0 win over the Foxes courtesy the goals from Thomas Partey and Alexandre Lacazette either side of the half.
