World News – UA – Liverpool vs Arsenal: Carabao Cup – LIVE!


Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta test their wits for the second time this week in a thrilling Carabao Cup fourth round clash

Arsenal took the lead at Anfield on Monday night thanks to Alexandre Lacazette, but were ultimately overwhelmed when Liverpool put in one of the season’s most polished performances

These two shared an exciting 5-5 at the same stage of this competition last year. More of the same, please

This is the first time he’s done so since he was removed from his captain’s post following this ugly argument with Gunners fans during the game against Crystal Palace in October 2019

Here’s how Standard Sport’s David Lynch thinks Liverpool will settle down tonight, with new signing Jota in the lead after his first home goal against Arsenal on Monday

Kostas Tsimikas has joined Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip on the sidelines ahead of Liverpool facing Arsenal in the Carabao Cup tonight

The Greece international made his competitive debut for the Reds, beating Lincoln City 7-2 to set up a fourth round clash with the Gunners

However, it will not be available on Thursday evening – or for the weekend at Aston Villa – after failing to overcome thigh fatigue

Deputy manager Pep Lijnders told the club’s official website: « We have Kostas, who after the game against Lincoln had a thigh problem We thought it would work out, no so he will need more time

Tsimikas joins both Henderson and Matip in missing out, although both players are getting closer to a return to first-team training

Lijnders added: « Jordan, we will reassess Friday after this game to see if he can be ready for Aston Villa

« Joel is the same as what I said last week, he will be ready [after] the international break and will use his time to prepare for Everton’s game »

This leaves Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Liverpool’s only other injury issue, with the midfielder currently recovering from a knee issue that came in pre-season

« Ox is progressing well He’s in the right direction and it’s really important for him that this first phase goes well But, of course, it takes a lot longer »

As was the case at Lincoln, Jurgen Klopp is set to announce the League Cup changes again

Here’s how Standard Sport’s Simon Collings sees Mikel Arteta lining up at Anfield tonight

Mikel Arteta is set to make changes from Arsenal side which lost 3-1 to Liverpool on Monday as they prepare to face them again in the Carabao Cup tonight

Bernd Leno is expected to keep his place in goal, although new Runar recruit Alex Runarsson pushes to make his debut

Gabriel is likely to return to defense after not playing Monday night and he could replace Kieran Tierney to play left of a full three

There are also likely to be changes in midfield, with youngster Joe Willock set to start in midfield alongside Real Madrid player Dani Ceballos

Outside the full-backs are likely to be turned and that should give Bukayo Saka and Cedric Soares chances to impress

In attack, Eddie Nketiah is expected to lead the line after scoring in the last round against Leicester City and he is expected to be flanked by Nicolas Pepe and Reiss Nelson

We are leaving Liverpool vs Arsenal for the second time this week with a place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals up for grabs

This match will be played behind closed doors at Anfield with no fans due to the presence of government directives regarding the coronavirus

TV channel: The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Football from 7pm, kicking off at 7.45am It is also available via Now TV with a day pass for £ 9.99, or a three-month pass free for £ 25

Live streaming: Sky Sports subscribers can stream the match online through SkyGo and the SkyGo app, with a monthly mobile subscription available for £ 5.99

Liverpool XI: Adrian, N Williams, R Williams, Van Dijk, Milner, Grujic, Jones, Wilson, Salah, Jota, Minamino

We saw four goals at Anfield on Monday and with so many changes expected from both managers this could lead to a very open competition with a flurry of goals

Klopp will be inclined to give some academy players a chance and, while Arsenal was outclassed last time around, this game will certainly see a more positive approach from Arteta’s men.

For this reason, the Gunners will go out of their way to take their place in the bottom eight with a realistic chance of getting silverware on hand.
