Liverpool vs Arsenal

Liverpool and Arsenal are due to face off in a League Cup semi-final clash on Thursday.

It is the first of two ties, with this match set to take place at Anfield and the second at the Emirates the following week.

Tottenham are the only ‘top-six’ side they have been able to pick up a win against in 2021/22, with some rather dismal showings put on against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City (the 5-0 loss).

The Gunners, though, will no doubt take solace in the fact Jurgen Klopp cannot call upon Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah or Naby Keita this week or next week.
