The Arsenal vs Liverpool live stream could see either team progress to the final of the Carabao Cup. After a goalless stalemate at Anfield, this tie really is balanced on a knife-edge and both teams will go into this second leg feeling confident that they can book their place in the final at the iconic Wembley Stadium to face Chelsea.

Arsenal showed real fighting spirit in the first leg. Anfield is not an easy place to play at the best of times, but after Granit Xhaka was given a straight red card for a foolish high challenge on Diogo Jota after just 25 minutes, the Gunners were surely fearing the worst. However, Mikel Arteta’s men frustrated the home side, restricting them to precious few chances, although Takumi Minamino did miss an absolute sitter in the closing moments. 

Liverpool will come into this match on the back of a convincing 3-0 victory over Brentford last weekend, but still without key players Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, who are both on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations. Even with the loss of two important players, Jurgen Klopp’s side still has more than enough quality to hurt Arsenal, though. This should be a plenty entertaining game for the neutrals.  

The winner will go on to face Chelsea, who cruised past Tottenham Hotspur in their own semi-final, at Wembley Stadium. This tie must be dedicated tonight, so there will be extra time and penalties if there’s not a clear winner after 90 minutes.  

Here's how they line up:

Arsenal: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Lokonga, Odegaard, Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Lacazette

Liverpool: Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Jones, Gordon, Jota, Firmino
