Arsenal and Liverpool lock horns one more time to determine the team that will play the League Cup final on February 27 against Chelsea. The first leg of this clash ended in a goalless draw that has been categorized as miraculous by most, as the Gunners held on to that result despite being down to ten men for over 60 minutes.
This was supposed to be the first leg of this tie, but the Reds struggled with an outbreak of COVID-19 cases within the squad, so the English Football Association decided to postpone the clash. Curiously, it is Arsenal who may be facing some problems to field their squad due to several absences, although none of them are related to coronavirus issues. Added to those injury absences and to those players who are away on international duty, midfielder Granit Xhaka will not be able to play this game after being sent off last week.
Arsenal get to this game after having their match for the weekend postponed due to their aforementioned absences. Prior to that, the Gunners had only been able to win one of their last four, losing two of those game against Manchester City (1-2) and Nottingham Forest (0-1).
On the other side of the pitch, Liverpool get to this game on a four-game streak without a loss, although only two of those have been wins. Their last match prior to Thursday's game ended in a three-nil win for Klopp's men, who have kept two clean sheets in a row.
The game promises to be even more interesting than the first leg ever was, which is why we encourage you to know more details regarding Thursday's encounter between these Premier League titans.
