      Arsenal v Liverpool Carabao Cup Semi-Final 1st Leg - POSTPONED
      Jan 04, 2022 12:17:28 am
      Think we will go as strong as possible for this then rotate heavily against Shrewsbury at the weekend.

      Not sure on Origi/Minamino’s injuries but I’ve predicted the team on them being out:

      Kelleher

      Alexander-Arnold
      Konate
      Van Dijk
      Robertson

      Henderson (c)
      Fabinho
      Jones

      Williams
      Oxlade-Chamberlain
      Jota

      Subs:

      Adrian
      Gomez
      Tsimikas
      Beck
      Milner
      Morton
      Dixon-Bonner
      Gordon
      Woltman

      Injured:

      Phillips
      Thiago
      Elliott
      Origi
      Minamino

      Isolating:

      Alisson
      Matip
      Firmino

      AFCON:

      Keita
      Salah
      Mane

      Given the situation we're in at the moment in terms of availability and taking into account Arsenal's recent resurgence, I'd probably be okay with a 1 goal defeat here. If Anfield is anything like it was for Leicester in the previous round I'd be fairly confident of us overturning a one goal deficit under the lights the following week, when we've hopefully also got a few more senior players back in the squad.

      A draw or especially a win on Thursday would be a superb result under the current circumstances, but as I said, a 1 goal defeat wouldn't be too bad either given its a two legged tie

      The Covid Guys won’t be out of isolation until the end of the week so will all miss this - all should be ok for the FA Cup match ( providing they pass LFT Covid tests )

      Suspect the team will be


      Kelleher

      TAA
      Konate
      Gomez
      Robbo

      Fabinho
      Morton

      Well add anyone to the list  of Ali, Bobby, Joel Thiago Mo Mane Keita Origi and Minamino and its not good.

      It’s going to be a messy end to the season no doubt  , prob see the season extended by a couple of weeks.

      With the World Cup next winter I’m not sure where they will find the time to extend it to be honest because they can’t push back the start of next season


      How close the keepers work I was surprised no other went out with it after Ali to be honest

      If these rumours are true and it goes, so will Sundays FA cup and maybe the 2nd leg.

      When does forefit come into play? I wonder if agreed would a 1 leg game be allowed and give them home advantage. Dates are at a premium for refixs. Last thing we want is a schedule that fucks up our champions league chances

      This is a concern, if Kelleher has it surely hes worked with Pitaluga and the others this week so are they as likely to have it

      Or it gives us the chance to get more players back fit for the next game and gives some a rest
