Liverpool and Arsenal meet for the second time in four days at Anfield on Thursday night, this time in the EFL Cup fourth round.
The Reds comfortably beat the Gunners 3-1 in the Premier League earlier in the week, though the lineups are likely to be different this time around.
Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Lincoln City 7-2 in the third round, while Arsenal beat Leicester 2-0.
Both teams are likely to heavily rotate, though both managers have also ensured their teams have a clearly defined style and as such the pattern of the game may be similar to the start of the week.

Liverpool – 16/13
Draw – 56/19
Arsenal – 13/5
Somewhat less utter dominance from the home side compared to the league match, and potentially more defensive lapses from both teams. There are usually goals when Reds and Gunners clash and last year in the cup they drew 5-5. Perhaps not quite as dramatic, but still an eventful game which Liverpool just edge. Liverpool 3-2 Arsenal
