Arsenal travel to Anfield to take on Brendan Rodgers' high-flying Liverpool in one of the Premier League's defining games of the season, but what are the key battles that will decide the match?

The Gunners are sitting pretty on top of the Premier League after 24 rounds of games. In nine seasons since 1994, the team leading the Premier League at Christmas have gone on to win the title. Arsene Wenger will have his team fired up for the most important week of their season as Brendan Rodgers looks to ambush him.

While the two managers get set to lock horns, their respective teams will be looking to right perceived wrongs and keep control of their own fate. 

Should either team stumble, the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea will surely pounce on Arsenal while the Reds have Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton breathing down their necks.

Not only is this game important for the two teams involved, it is also the match that almost every single Premier League team-supporting fan will be keeping an eye out for.

There will be great strikers on show, midfielders who could grace any pitch and defenders who would kick their own mothers to deny a goal. The game is set, the players are waiting and the drumroll is ready to begin.

Here, Bleacher Report offers five key battles that will decide the most important game of the season: Liverpool vs. Arsenal.
