There should be a slight cause for concern once the merriment over Sunday settles.

Match winner Andrey Arshavin limped off in the late stages of the Liverpool victory to be replaced by Aaron Ramsey.

That worry was masked by the Russian’s brilliant contribution which clinched a superb result at Anfield, but despite admitting being in pain, Arshavin has positive news about his condition ahead of the midweek visit to Burnley.

The 28-year-old is yet to face a fitness test but is confident of making the trip to Turf Moor on Wednesday despite revealing having a chronic problem with his foot.

“When I struck the ball at that moment, the pain worsened.” Arshavin said

“Yes, this injury has been bothering me for a while.

The instep of my foot has been causing me pain for a long time, but I want and I will play in the next game. If you came on the pitch – endure and play.”
