Wojciech Szczesny is putting last weekends 5-1 defeat at Anfield behind him and expects the return of 'real Arsenal', according to the Guardian.

As the teams meet again this Sunday at Emirates Stadium in the FA Cup fifth round, Arsenal are eager for revenge.

Brendan Rodgers' men were 4-0 up after 20 minutes last Sunday, with two goals from Martin Skrtel, one from Raheem Sterling and another from Daniel Sturridge.

With a final 5-1 scoreline, Arsenal were humiliated and lived up to the claim that they have 'big game syndrome', insinuating that they can't perform in the high pressure games against the larger clubs.

Wojciech Szczesny added: "People have seen the real Arsenal over the last year. We conceded five on Saturday, but our defensive record over the last year or so has been amazing."

Szczesny feels that Arsenal should not be judged on this one game and instead, be judged over a long period of time.

With a current goal difference of +22 this season in the Premier League, Arsenal's defence is strong and a defeat in such a manner was very unexpected.

After Arsenal's strong performance last night against Manchester United, the Polish international goalkeeper said that: "‘You saw that against United, we didn’t concede against a top side with fantastic strikers and we hope to do that against Liverpool."

With the Gunners biggest defeat at Anfield in over 50 years, Wenger said the only people to perform last Sunday were the fans, even though some were heading for the exit even before the half time whistle.

With the Premier League at it's most thrilling with only three points between the top three sides, the pressure is on for every team to perform.

One game like this for Arsenal could have been enough to change the whole result of their season but the Gunners are hoping to regain confidence this Sunday in the FA Cup clash and continue the title race.
