It's a second meeting between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield inside 72 hours and if last season's EFL Cup 4th round tie is anything to go by, we are in for some rich entertainment.
🏟 Match context
These old English foes met at the same stage of the EFL Cup at Anfield last season and produced a 5-5 thriller. Liverpool eventually went on to win on penalties despite trailing three times in the match.
It was a 5-5 last season and Liverpool's last three League Cup ties have seen a whopping 24 goals scored in them. Although Mikel Arteta sets his first team up to defend primarily, the second string cup side will be given licence to attack Jurgen Klopp's experimental lineup.
Bank on goals tonight.
