Arsenal and Liverpool are battling for a place at Wembley in their rearranged Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

The Gunners’ home fixture was due to take place at the Emirates two weeks ago but was postponed at Liverpool’s request due to coronavirus cases.

Anfield then played host to the first leg last week, ending 0-0 with Mikel Arteta’s side hanging on after Granit Xhaka’s first half red card.

The two sides now face off with a place in the final at stake to take on Chelsea, who beat Tottenham 3-0 on aggregate in the other semi-final.

Jurgen Klopp’s side enter the game high on confidence after a 3-0 win over Brentford in the Premier League at the weekend.

But Arsenal’s depleted squad are well-rested after their North London Derby clash with Tottenham was postponed due to a number of players being unavailable.

Stay tuned for team news and live updates from the Emirates.

State of play

So following last week’s goalless draw it will be winner takes all in north London.

Liverpool failed to break down 10-man Arsenal and will need more cutting-edge tonight.

The hosts meanwhile, despite home advantage, will be underdogs going in to the clash.

Liverpool won the only league meeting between this sides so far this term, a comprehensive 4-0 victory back in December

Arsenal’s struggles

Mikel Arteta admits Arsenal are still struggling with player availability after their North London derby was called off at the weekend.

Arsenal told the Premier League they did not have enough players and, when asked whether they could have fielded a team of 11 players, Arteta said: “Maybe not even that.

“We are struggling, we’ve been struggling all week with numbers and that’s a fact. It’s where we are and that’s where we are.

“Hopefully we can bring some people back, not in the best condition because they haven’t trained for a long time, but with a team which can hopefully take us into a final.”
