Arsenal are set to welcome Liverpool to the Emirates Stadium in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final. After a goalless draw at Anfield, the two sides will lock horns on Thursday night as they battle out for a place in the final.
Following Granit Xhaka's early dismissal a week ago, Arsenal faced an uphill battle to keep their clean sheet intact. A resilient defensive performance from the likes of Benjamin White and Gabriel, helped with a horrendous Takumi Minamino miss, meant that Arsenal left Anfield on equal terms with Liverpool and with it all to play for in London.
Arsenal head into the match well-rested. Due to the controversial postponement of the north London derby on Sunday, Mikel Arteta's men have had a week of rest heading into the fixture.
Arteta will face a challenge with the amount of potential first-team absentees for the fixture. Calum Chambers, Cedric Soares, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka all have doubts due to injury or fatigue, but may still feature. Meanwhile, Xhaka is set to serve his suspension so is also not eligible for the match.
Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny and Nicolas Pepe are all at the Africa Cup of Nations. While captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has returned to the club, he will not be availiable as the forward is being tested for heart problems.
Arsenal: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Chambers, Lokonga, Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Lacazette
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Jones, Minamino, Jota, Firmino
