Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna believes that last weekend's come from behind victory over Tottenham inspired his side to do the same against Liverpool.

The French right-back delivered a pinpoint cross to allow Robin van Persie to nod the Gunners level after a Laurent Koscielny own goal had given Liverpool an early lead at Anfield.

Van Persie, the Premier League's top scorer, then completed the turnaround with a late volleyed winner to hand Arsenal all three points.

Speaking to Arsenal Player Sagna said: "We trust each other and we promise ourselves to play whatever happens on the pitch.

"We know we have a good team and we know we can score goals. It happened against Tottenham and we came back again. It will help the team to look forward."

Arsenal have been hampered this season with injuries but the return of several key defenders has coincided with an upturn in fortunes. Arsene Wenger was awarded manager of the month for Febuary as he guided his side back into contention for 4th place and Champions League qualification.

Talking about the weekend's win, Sagna said: "It was massive for us because they were just behind us. We had to win as well because, although we won against Spurs, it was not enough just to do that.

"We had to win away against Liverpool to help us qualify for the Champions League."

However, the Gunners face a stern test of their character on Tuesday night as they seek to overturn a 4-0 first leg deficit against AC Milan.
