Arsenal expect Carabao Cup semi-final tie against Liverpool to go ahead with players set to return

Published on: 18 January 2022

The second leg of Arsenal’s Carabao Cup semi-final against Liverpool is set to go ahead on Thursday night.

The Gunners are confident some of the injury issues that contributed to their request to postpone the north London derby will have eased for Liverpool’s visit to the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta was without at least 14 players last weekend, but Martin Odegaard’s Covid isolation is over while Bukayo Saka, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares had minor injuries that Arsenal hope will have cleared up.

The club are still awaiting contact from Gabon over when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be released to return to London after his country said he would come back for medical checks after suffering post-Covid complications.

Arsenal have been in touch with the striker and received confirmation he is fine.

Club insiders dismissed claims from boss Patrice Neveu that Arsenal had put Gabon under pressure to release Aubameyang.

Meanwhile, defender Sead Kolasinac has joined Marseille on a free transfer after agreeing to terminate his Arsenal contract by mutual consent.
