In this match against Arsenal, coach Jürgen Klopp must line up his team in 4-3-3 where Harvey Elliott, Diogo Jota and Takumi Minamino make up the front line of the team. As it is the League Cup, the home coach should put on the field some less usual players and rest the starters. Absent for this game: Joel Matip, Chamberlain, Thiago and Brewster, all with physical problems.
Arsenal comes unmotivated for this match after a defeat, by 3-1,
when they went to the Liverpool field, adding the first setback this
season: the only goal of the team in the game was signed by Alexandre
Lacazette. In the 3rd round of the League Cup, the visitors beat
Leicester City by 0-2. It should be noted that Arsenal won this
competition on only 2 occasions, the last being in the 1992/1993 season.
In this match against Liverpool, coach Mikel Arteta must maintain his usual 4-3-3 tactic, with Nicolas Pépé, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah the most advanced men on the team. Offensive midfielder Dani Ceballos will be the main player of this Arsenal, being responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. Out of this game are Chambers, Martinelli, Pablo Marí, Mustafi and Rowe, players who are recovering from injury.
A game that is expected to be very open and with several bids of interest. Both Liverpool and Arsenal have high quality attacks when it comes to finishing and in this game they should act in a more daring way. However, it is important to note that Liverpool comes to this game very motivated due to the good results, making it closer to adding the victory
