Arsenal vs Liverpool Preview and Livestream

Arsenal have been doing pretty well in the league after a disastrous start to the season and sit pretty in the top 4 going into the New Year. A good cup run must also have helped boost morale in the Gunners camp and now an opportunity to show everyone the progress they have made awaits in the form of Liverpool in the cup semi-final.

Mikel Arteta has built a strong core of youngsters in the team who are delivering at the highest level in recent times. Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe have now become household names for Gooners all over and it will be up to them to lead Arsenal one step closer to silverware in the EFL Cup.

Liverpool have lost ground in the Premier League title race to Manchester City and now sit a gaping 11 points behind the league leaders. They can take solace from the fact that they have a chance at a trophy soon and Jurgen Klopp is sure to pick a strong side to get past Arsenal in the semis this week.

Arsenal Team News vs Liverpool

Injuries: Arsenal are in quite a good place at the moment in terms of injuries, with none of their current first team players facing any issues. Only Sead Kolašinac and Calum Chambers continue to be long-term absentees for the Gunners.

Suspensions: It is unclear how long striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains suspended by the club over disciplinary issues, having also been stripped of the captaincy for the same, and thus it is difficult to say whether he will be considered for selection against Liverpool too. Gabriel will be suspended for this match after his red card.

Arsenal vs Liverpool Prediction

It is sometimes hard to believe that Arsenal once ruled domestic competitions and even reached an FA Cup final recently that they lost against Chelsea. However, they are in decent form going into the match and with Liverpool missing their African stars, it could prove a mouth-watering contest for the Gunners. We thus predict Arsenal to win 2-1 in what would be a close-fought tie.
