Coming up later tomorrow is the continuation of the EFL cup round of 16 which kicks off today with a lot of exciting fixtures. Liverpool will be hosting Arsenal for their first game of the EFL cup round of 16, as they both battle it out at Anfield. This alongside the Chelsea vs Man United fixture are the biggest fixtures in this EFL cup round of 16 showdown.
Liverpool are full of confidence at the moment after their solid performance against Spurs at the weekend to come from an early shocker to win the game 2-1 at home. They will be going into this match pretty confident that they can get the job done against Arsenal again this season when they meet for the second time this season in the EFL cup round of 16.
Expected formation and tactics, Liverpool without a doubt will definitely set up in their preferred 4-3-3 formation. Whether they will utilize the same squad that played at the weekend or use more of the younger players remains unknown, but one thing is for sure, whichever team Klopp decides to put out against Arsenal, he will be expecting a positive result. However, we are expecting Liverpool to put out a strong line up as this is a big match. For that reason, we should be expecting a Liverpool team that will want to take control of the game at home and utilize their qualities in attack to hurt Arsenal.
Arsenal in contrast to Liverpool, are coming from a disappointing draw against Crystal Palace at home, throwing away a 2 nil lead to draw the game 2-2. A lot of talking points have surrounded Emery and his Arsenal side this season due to some of the poor performances and results. However, they will be looking to get back on track and respond against Liverpool at Anfield tomorrow as they aim for success in the EFL cup this season.
Expected formation and tactics, Arsenal will be expected to set up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Emery will want his team to show a response in this big match against Liverpool. For Arsenal, they will also be looking to control the game and try to create chances in the game to win the match. This post can also be found on my scorum blog
