It’s been confirmed that Arsenal’s fourth round Carabao Cup fixture with Liverpool will take place on Wednesday, 30th October and be broadcast by Sky Sports.
We beat Nottingham Forest 5-0 in the previous round, our youngsters impressing and injured players returning, while the Scousers overcame MK Dons 2-0.
It later transpired that Jurgen Klopp had fielded an ineligible player – Pedro Chirivella didn’t have the necessary international clearance – which led to suggestions that the Reds could either be forced to replay the game or be chucked out of the competition altogether.
In the end, the Premier League leaders got away with a £200,000 fine, half of which is suspended.
We’ve faced the Reds in this competition a couple of times, Julio Baptista bagging four goals on the way to a 6-3 win on Merseyside in 2007 and Fran Merida scoring a cracker in a 2-1 win at the Emirates in 2009.
