Xabi Alonso will not allow his friendship with fellow Spaniard Cesc Fabregas to get in the way of putting the brakes on runaway Arsenal.

Liverpool midfielder Alonso is hoping to make his comeback from a broken metatarsal in the clash which could define his club´s Premier League season.

"He is one of their most important players and one of the most influential in the Premier League, no doubt about it," Alonso told the Reds´ official website, "I will have a chat with him before the game, but he is one of the best around at the moment so I will not let friendship deflect me from trying to beat him."
