What channel is Liverpool v Arsenal Carabao Cup match on? Kick off time and latest team news- 1 October 2020

Liverpool face Arsenal in the Carabao Cup fourth round at Anfield live on Sky Sports this week

Liverpool Arsenal

Liverpool will hope for a repeat result from Monday night when they take on Arsenal at Anfield for the second time in four days.


The Reds cruised to a 3-1 victory over the Gunners as Jurgen Klopp outwitted his managerial counterpart Mikel Arteta in a technical battle between the sides.

Both sides are expected to make plenty of changes to their starting XIs in all of their Carabao Cup fixtures with a fixture pile-up on the horizon as European competitions approach on the horizon.

Arsenal will have learned a lot from their trip to Merseyside on Monday, but can they put their research into practice with a reshuffled line-up on Thursday?

Arteta has already lifted two trophies during his short stint as Gunners boss and will be determined for more as soon as he can lay his hands on them.

Liverpool v Arsenal team news

Liverpool: Thiago Alcantara has tested positive for COVID-19 and therefore won’t be available for either of the Reds’ games prior to the international break.

Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip and new signing Kosta Tsimikas are ruled out for this encounter, though Diogo Jota is expected to be handed a start after finding the net against Arsenal on Monday night.

Arsenal: New goalkeeper Alex Runarsson may be given a chance to shine here, though William Saliba is being sheltered from featuring in the first team for now.

Nicolas Pepe, Dani Ceballos and Eddie Nketiah could get the nod here as each stakes their claim for regular action.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Arsenal

Neither side is blessed with extraordinary quality at the back beyond their starting defence, and that could make for a tasty encounter here.

The likes of Jota, Takumi Minamino and youngster Curtis Jones will all be keen to thrust their name into the mix for regular first-team action and have each shown flashes of class to suggest they could do just that.

However, Arsenal may be tempted to field a slightly stronger rotated XI than Liverpool, who are likely to rest Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, and that could just about give them the edge.

Our prediction: Liverpool 2-3 Arsenal
