Liverpool look to keep an interest in all domestic competitions as they enter this year’s Carabao Cup in the fourth round with a home fixture against Arsenal.
Both starting elevens will be much changed from the weekend’s Premier League fixtures – and the squad players will want to make the most of their chances. There should be a few goals here.
LIVERPOOL TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Arsenal managed to score five against a disappointing Nottingham Forest in the last round – and although Liverpool are a much stronger side both goalkeepers could be busy.
TOTAL GOALS OVER 2.5
At this stage of the competition many of the bigger teams will still be using a lot of their younger squad players. This should make for an entertaining night’s football.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Head to Head
Liverpool have enjoyed this fixture in recent seasons as Arsenal have struggled to keep up with an improving side. But the last time these two met in the League Cup was in 2009 when Arsenal ended up 2-1 winners.
Liverpool to win
It is sometimes difficult to predict the outcome of Carabao Cup games, as the line ups can look very unfamiliar. Whoever it is that starts in this game, it should be an exciting match up with both sets of squad players eager to impress.
