Tonight’s game kicks off at 7.30pm and fans can watch the action live on Sky Sports.

Both clubs are expected to ring the changes this evening, with the Carabao Cup lower down in their priorities.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was substituted late on against Tottenham at the weekend and is unlikely to be risked.

Virgil van Dijk is also a doubt and may be rested but the likes of Naby Keita, Adam Lallana and Divock Origi could all come into the starting line-up.

Klopp gave starts to a host of youth players in the last round and may do the same again.

As for Arsenal, Joe Willock, Lucas Torreira, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka could all be handed starts by Unai Emery.

Emery also has the chance recall Mesut Ozil, who featured in the previous round and has not played for the Gunners since.

Liverpool predicted XI: Adrian; Gomez, Van den Berg, Lovren, Milner; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Keita; Lallana, Brewster, Origi.

Arsenal predicted XI: Martinez; Bellerin, Holding, Mustafi, Kolasinac; Torreira, Willock; Maitland-Niles, Ozil, Saka; Martinelli.
