'I'm sure Arsenal will be a bit of a wounded animal on Wednesday night,' said Gerrard. 'But we've certainly got to do what Manchester United and Chelsea have done to them, which is try and give them very little space and hit them on the counter attack. Everyone knows that if you give Arsenal time and space they will absolutely crucify you. "It's a massive game for us and the target on Wednesday night is to try and get a result where we can push on and try and get third place. We're just taking each game as it comes.
"Obviously at the end of the season our target is a top four finish, but if Arsenal give us any sniff of catching them then we want to grab it and hopefully that will be on Wednesday night.' Asked by former Anfield striker Collymore what the confidence was like in the Liverpool dressing room, Gerrard said: 'I wouldn't say confidence is sky-high in the dressing room, but it's certainly on the way up. It's certainly improving; we're on a good run.
