Despite many more journalists jumping on the ‘kicking the f*ck out of Arsenal’ bandwagon and reporting we may cancel the game, it looks like we have some good team news for a change as we prepare for our game against False Positive FC.
The Daily Express are reporting that Tierney, Chambers, Saka and Gabriel should all be back for the game, which promises to be an absolute classic, despite only being the League Cup.
Hopefully, Martin Odegaard will also return, him being the one COVID case we did have when we hilariously called off last weekends North London derby against our local ‘rivals’.
However, it was also revealed that the day after the ill-fated postponement, we discovered another case, so that player will probably be missing and we’ll be sure to let you know who that was as soon as we know.
No news yet on Emile Smith-Rowe and Takehiro Tomiyasu who have both been injured for a few days. Both us and Liverpool are also missing our AFCON participants including Aubameyang, Pepe, Partey, Mane and Salah to name a few.
The game which takes place this Thursday at the Emirates was originally scheduled for two weeks ago. However, Liverpool ‘mistakenly’ claimed that they accidentally maybe thought they had perhaps had 23 COVID cases, that somehow turned into just one positive case.
You may also remember the first leg, which should have been the second, took place at Anfield, the location for the vast COVID plague just a week earlier, ended 0-0. This was despite us playing most of the game with ten men after Xhaka was sent off.
The winner of the clash on Thursday will play Chelsea in next month’s final at Wembley after The Blues battered Tottenham 3-0 to book their place last week.
