Liverpool chairman Tom Werner is optimistic about Liverpool's chances of qualifying for the Champions League this season.

The Reds have not qualified for the illustrious competition since 2009 and their last two campaigns have resulted in disappointing eight and seventh place finishes, respectively.

But Liverpool's good start to the season has brought belief and confidence to everyone around the club before their meeting with league leaders Arsenal.

And Werner, also chairman of MLB World Series winners Boston Red Sox, thinks Liverpool are on the right track and are now equipped to challenge for a top-four spot.

"We know how much it means to our fans to get to the top of the Premier League and get back into the Champions League," Werner is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"I just want to keep going in the right direction.

"We entered into this crazy world of football because we wanted to bring more trophies into the trophy room at Anfield.

"Our performance on the pitch has improved this year. Things are all looking good.

"It is a terrific league. There are so many teams bunched up at the top. It is going to be a dogfight."

Liverpool currently find themselves in third place in the table and a win at the Emirates in Saturday's late kick-off could bring them top.

Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool manager, will welcome back playmaker Philippe Coutinho who has recovered from a shoulder injury.

The diminutive Brazilian is unlikely to start as Rodgers looks to stick with a midfield three of Steven Gerrard, Lucas Leiva and Jordan Henderson, but he may come on as a substitute should Liverpool need him.

Jose Enrique is a major doubt and Aly Chissoko is likely to keep the left wing-back spot.
