Anfield has been a significant venue for Arsenal in the FA Youth Cup in recent years.
It was at Liverpool’s famous ground that the young Gunners last won the prestigious competition in 2009, with Jack Wilshere amongst the players involved.
In 2018 a side containing Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe also won at Anfield in the fourth round, with Arsenal reaching the final that year, where they lost to Chelsea.
Tomorrow night another crop of talented youngsters make the trip to Merseyside for what should be an enthralling encounter.
This crop of Arsenal players are widely seen as one of the best groups the club has ever produced in terms of the variety of prospects in different positions, but, make no mistake, they face a major task against a Liverpool team that have earned many plaudits this season.
Liverpool thrashed Leicester City 5-1 in the last round of the competition and are second in their league with a goal difference of +46.
Defender Billy Koumetio is another good prospect along with attacker James Balagizi.
As far as Arsenal are concerned, coach Ken Gillard was rewarded in the last round for naming his strongest possible lineup as Arsenal won 3-1 against West Ham United.
Miguel Azeez has barely featured for the U18s this season as he has stepped up to the U23s, but he could have a key part to play tomorrow.
There will also be much focus on winger Omari Hutchinson, who was superb against West Ham and has subsequently made his U23s debut.
With Charlie Patino doubtful, Jack Henry-Francis, an excellent passer, could be called upon again in midfield.
There is also a doubt over right-back Brooke Norton-Cuffy, but Daniel Oyegoke, who previously featured for the first-team in pre-season friendlies, could fill in.
Arsenal have some excellent players at their disposal, but if there is a concern about this side then it’s defensively – they have yet to keep a clean sheet in this competition this season.
Still, Arsenal’s attacking quality should cause problems for Liverpool and vice versa. Everything is set up for another memorable night at Anfield.
