Liverpool host Arsenal in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. The Reds needed strikes from Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah to claim all three points ​against Tottenhham on Sunday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp has not seen his side lose at home in all competitions since a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in the third round of the Carabao Cup back in September 2018. 

Unai Emery saw his men draw ​2-2 at home to Crystal Palace after throwing away a two-goal lead over the south London club. Granit Xhaka was booed off by the Arsenal faithful when substituted. The midfielder cupped his ear and told the fans to ‘f*** off’, taking his shirt off and storming down the tunnel. 

Team News

Liverpool are likely to change a number of personnel from their weekend win over Spurs with three games in a week to be exact. 

Jurgen Klopp may have to do without several key players; ​Mohamed Salah limped off on Sunday afternoon with a suspected ankle injury, while Van Dijk (dead leg) and Jöel Matip (knee) are unlikely to be risked considering the packed fixture list. Nathaniel Clyne (cruciate ligament injury) and Xherdan Shaqiri (calf) remain absent.

Reiss Nelson (knee) and the likes of goalkeeper Emi Martinez, right-back Hector Bellerín and midfielder Joe Willock may all return to the side. 

Liverpool remained unbeaten throughout October in all competitions despite tough games against Tottenham, ​Manchester United and ​Leicester.

Arsenal only managed to record a single ​Premier League victory throughout October, coming in a 1-0 win against Bournemouth prior to the international break.


Predicted Lineups

​Liverpool:Adrian; Milner, Lovren, Gomez, Robertson; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Keïta; Lallana, Mane, Origi​
Arsenal:​Martinez; Bellerín, Mustafi, Holding, Kolasinac; Willock, Torreira, Maitland-Niles; Smith-Rowe, Saka, Martinelli

Wednesday’s fixture will be the 228th competitive meeting between the two sides – Liverpool have won 88 of those, edging Arsenal who themselves have 78 wins, with the remainder (61) ending in draws.
