Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident of keeping the prolific Liverpool strike pair of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge "quiet" again at Anfield on Saturday.

Suarez Daniel Sturridge have played 11 Premier League matches together this season and the only team to stop them scoring is Arsenal, in their 2-0 home victory back in November.

"The key is for us to dominate the game and leave them as few balls as possible," Wenger told "That will be one of our targets of course."

"At Liverpool the task might be a bit more difficult but the philosophy on our side has to be the same - to master the ball and to have the ball and to dominate the game.

"Liverpool have a strong offensive force with Sturridge, with Suarez, with [Philippe] Coutinho, with [Raheem] Sterling behind. All these players can score goals and make a difference. So what you want on our side is a strong defensive performance."

The partnership, known as SAS, has scored 37 league goals in the division this season (23 for Suarez, 14 for Sturridge), and are destined to smash the Liverpool Premier League record for a strike partnership, eclipsing the 42 goals scored by Robbie Fowler (28) and Stan Collymore (14) in 1995/06.
