Kuyt told Liverpool’s official website: “Arsenal is a big test now. After our bad start, losing a few games and only drawing at Sheffield United, we have new confidence after winning four in a row at home.
“There is still a big gap in the league and we just want to see what we can do next week away at Arsenal. There is only one thing we want to do: win. I will speak to Van Persie and I am going to tell him that we will beat them.
“He is one of the people I spoke to about coming to Liverpool. He is growing a lot as a player and as a man. It is great to see him doing so well there.
“It will be nice to see him and I hope we can beat them because, after that, we will link up again with the national team.”
