The team to face Liverpool has just been announced for our League Cup semi-final which takes place at The Emirates tonight. Martin Odegaard returns, as does Tomiyasu, Tierney and Emile Smith-Rowe. Amazing Thomas Partey makes the bench despite on getting back from AFCON yesterday!
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Sambi, Ødegaard; Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette.
Hein, Holding, Alebiosu, Tavares, Partey, Patino, Salah-Eddine, Nketiah, Biereth
The first leg finished 0-0 last week at Anfield as we battled to a draw, playing out 75 minutes with ten men after Xhaka was sent off, and the winners of tonight’s game will face Chelsea at the end of March in the first domestic final of the season.
Next up is another home game on Sunday as we take on Burnley in the Premier League. Burnley have had several games called off through COVID so there is a chance this one could also fall foul of yet another postponement.
