Liverpool Carabao Cup clash postponed 0

Posted on January 05, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal’s duel with Liverpool in the semifinals of the Carabao Cup has been postponed. The EFL have reached this decision following a formal request from the Merseysiders submitted on Wednesday morning, due to an increasing COVID-19 outbreak.

Both manager Jurgen Klopp and his right-hand man Pep Lijnders are among those who recently tested positive for the notorious virus, along with an unspecified number of first-team players. Quite apart from that, Liverpool would be without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita anyway, with the two star forwards and the midfielder all away on international duty at the African Cup of Nations.

It’s Liverpool. Arsenal have been drawn to take on the Merseysiders in the Carabao Cup semifinals, after they emerged victorious from a heart-stopping quarterfinal duel with Leicester City.

Liverpool started the match against Leicester, played on Wednesday at Anfield, with just captain Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino of their regular starters (even Firmino’s status in that sense is questionable) named in the lineup. Their team mostly consisted of fringe players and academy boys. On the other hand, the Foxes went to the North-West looking pretty strong, with all their main players included.

Arsenal were attempting to carry their Premier League form over into the League Cup last night when they played host to Leeds United at the Emirates. In what proved to be a fairly impressive display, the Gunners managed to beat Marcelo Bielsa’s men 2-0 and secure their place in the quarter-finals of this year’s competition.

After the full-time whistle had blown, Mikel Arteta spoke candidly with the media about what the win means for the club moving forward as the focus shifts back to the Premier League this weekend.

Now that we’re in the midst of the international break it seems like as good of a time as any to take stock of what’s been going on in the world of Arsenal Football Club as of late. We all know they’ve been on quite the journey throughout the first few months of the season and all indications seem to point towards that trend continuing between now and May.

Alas, with the international break being upon us, we want to take a quick look back at the last six games the Gunners have been involved in – most of which have gone pretty well.

Arsenal are riding a nice wave of momentum right now and while the popular opinion is that it could come to an end at any moment, many Gunners fans are choosing to sit back and enjoy the ride – as they should.

They’re finally starting to break into the top half in the Premier League and in doing so they’ve not only bested rivals Tottenham Hotspur, but they’ve also entered into the conversation for a top six run. It’s going to be easier said than done for them to actually get there but the fact they’re even in the mix – or could be soon – is a great sign.

Arteta reflects on third straight win for Arsenal 0

The Carabao Cup isn’t best known for being the most prestigious competition in English football but even with that being the case, it’s nice to make a go of it and attempt to go on a run deep into the latter stages. Arsenal, who only have the Premier League and the two cups to focus on this season, made light work of their opponents for the second round in a row last night as they beat AFC Wimbledon 3-0 in what proved to be a pretty comfortable night at the office.

We’re half way through the third round of the Carabao Cup and we’re ready for a whole lot more drama to come our way in the next 24 hours. There are plenty of intriguing fixtures left to be played including three all-Premier League ties but today, we’re going to be focusing on Arsenal as they prepare to host third tier AFC Wimbledon in what could serve as a potential banana skin for the Gunners.

Before the match later tonight, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke to and made it clear that he expects a focused and determined performance from his side at the Emirates.

Arsenal vs Wimbledon – Preview 0

The League Cup is back in our lives once again this week with a parade of clubs attempting to make their way into the last 16 of the competition – edging one step closer to Wembley in the process. Based on the fact that they aren’t involved in European competition it makes sense to view Arsenal as a club who could, or perhaps even should, be one of the favourites to go all the way.

The next obstacle en-route to doing just that will be League One side AFC Wimbledon who will make the trip to the Emirates for tomorrow night’s game.

Arsenal’s League Cup clash vs Wimbledon confirmed 0

While Arsenal’s 6-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in the League Cup was nice to see, it doesn’t mean a whole lot if they don’t go on to have a properly decent run in the competition. If they’re going to do so, they’ll have to tackle an opponent that, on paper, they should be even more likely to defeat in the form of AFC Wimbledon.

The League One mid-table side will obviously see this as a golden opportunity to upset the established order but in truth, Arsenal shouldn’t be seeing this as anything other than a nailed on victory. The game has been confirmed to take place on Wednesday, 22nd September with a 7.45pm kick-off and if Mikel Arteta is still in charge by then, it’ll be the sort of game he’ll be expected to succeed in.

It’s been a tough few months for fans of Arsenal Football Club to round out 2020, but as we look ahead to the remainder of 2021, it does feel like there are some reasons to be positive. Mikel Arteta is starting to show signs of life as Gunners boss and with the January transfer window now upon us, it’s time to see whether or not Arsenal can really build a squad that wants to fight for this club.
