This particular fixture was meant to be the opening leg of the 2021/22 EFL Cup semi-final, but after that was postponed, things were switched and now Arsenal have home advantage for this deciding clash. It’s an advantage they will hope gives them the edge as the two sides are very evenly poised.

When Arsenal travelled to Anfield last week, there were too many people feeling optimistic about their chances, and a comfortable Liverpool win was deemed more likely after Granit Xhaka’s red card. But Arsenal managed to hold on to a goalless draw in a good defensive performance that frustrated Liverpool. The Gunners weren’t able to build on that performance at the weekend, as their Premier League North London Derby against Tottenham was postponed.

Liverpool meanwhile, used the weekend to move back into second in the Premier League with a comprehensive victory over Brentford at Anfield. Obviously frustrated having failed to score against Arsenal, Liverpool put three past the Bees to build some momentum going into the second leg, pushing away any claims of their struggles without Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah who are both on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The win also extended Liverpool’s unbeaten run across all competitions to four games in 2022 having ended 2021 with a 1-0 defeat to Leicester. Victory for Liverpool here would see them in their first EFL Cup final since 2016 and move one step closer of reclaiming their throne as the competition’s most-successful side, currently level with Man City on eight triumphs.

Arsenal vs Liverpool: Match Stats

Despite last week’s good performance, Arsenal are still without a win in three games against Liverpool and they really don’t like facing Jurgen Klopp’s side. Since the German took over at Anfield in 2015, Liverpool have faced Arsenal 16 times across all competitions, with Arsenal winning just three. There were two penalty shootout-wins in the EFL Cup and Community Shield that Arsenal may take hope from, but Klopp will be more confident with his nine victories.

Again, the goalless draw last week was great for Arsenal’s defence, but it also showed they need something different in attack, especially when they face Liverpool. The Gunners have now failed to score in their past four games against Liverpool across all competitions, with Alexandre Lacazette getting their last goal, opening the scoring in a 3-1 defeat last season.
