Mikel Arteta could be without up to 10 players for the meeting between Liverpool and Arsenal in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final.

They have reported: ‘Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey could return to the side tonight following Ghana’s surprise Africa Cup of Nations exit.

‘However, Emile Smith Rowe, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Martin Odegaard are all doubtful’.

These players will also join Granit Xhaka who is suspended from the first leg, Mohamed Elneny and Nicolas Pepe who are still at AFCON, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is struggling with heart issues after testing positive for Covid-19, with Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares also being possible injury absentees.

To see the Gunners with one of their AFCON stars back and in the team would be a big upset for several of our fans as we are very much craving the return of any and all of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita.

Nevertheless, it will be a tough tie whoever makes it onto the pitch and we need a big performance to reach Wembley.
