ARSENAL head up to Anfield as they take on Liverpool in what is now the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final.

The two teams were scheduled to meet first at the Emirates last week – however, the game was controversially postponed due to Covid cases in the Liverpool camp.

Jurgen Klopp would later reveal that all but one of the cases were false positives and, following complaints from other clubs, the EFL could decide to investigate the cancellation.

Klopp said on Sunday: “We had last week a proper outbreak and it showed up that we had a lot of false positives but the rules are like they are so all these players who are false positives couldn’t play.

“The only real positive came from Trent Alexander-Arnold and all the rest were false positives.”

As a result of that cancellation, Liverpool will now head down to London on Thursday, January 20.
