Plenty of fans have been looking at the League Cup as a golden opportunity for Arsenal to try and win a trophy, especially given that they’re just one two-legged semi-final away from reaching the promised land of Wembley.
Alas, the current campaign isn’t going to be quite so simple, as has been the case for months now. COVID-19 is disrupting an awful lot of things and it appears as if the first leg of the aforementioned semi-final is now being thrown into disarray too.
The following statement from Arsenal.com confirms that Liverpool have requested that the game this week be postponed.
“Following a request from Liverpool FC, the English Football League (EFL) is currently considering whether our Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg match on Thursday (6 January) can go ahead.
Liverpool have reported an outbreak of COVID-19 and the Football League is now assessing the situation.
We will update our supporters with any further information as soon as we have it.”
Will the game be postponed?
