Liverpool to be without several first-team players vs Arsenal, including Jordan Henderson


Liverpool vs Arsenal

The 4th round of the League Cup draws to a close on Thursday evening.

Tottenham have already booked their spot in the last eight after beating Chelsea via penalties on Tuesday.

There are also a handful big ties taking place this evening, including Manchester United vs Brighton.

Perhaps the biggest clash of the round, though, pits Liverpool against Arsenal at Anfield.

Under Mikel Arteta, the Gunners have a decent record against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

However, these two heavyweights would face off earlier this week in a league tie.

And though Arsenal did cause Liverpool some issues, the reigning Premier League champions would eventually come away with a deserved 3-1 win.

Liverpool to be without three first-team players

As a result, Arsenal probably aren’t looking forward to Thursday’s game too much.

However, one positive the Gunners may be able to take is that Jurgen Klopp rarely puts out strong sides in the League Cup.

Liverpool are also, as confirmed by Pepijn Lijnders, set to be without some key men for the 4th round tie.

Speaking to Liverpool’s official website, the assistant manager confirmed that Jordan Henderosn is set to miss out, though they will reevaluate him before their clash with Aston Villa.

Joel Matip is also not set to return until after the international break whilst Kostas Tsimikas will not be involved on Thursday or at the weekend for the Reds:

“Jordan, we will reevaluate on Friday after this game to see if he can be ready for Aston Villa. 

“Joel is the same as what I said last week, he will be ready [after] the international break and use the time to prepare the Everton game. 

“Ox is progressing well. He’s in a good way and it’s really important for him that this first phase goes smooth. But, of course, that takes a much longer time.

“We have Kostas, who after the Lincoln game had a thigh problem. We thought it would settle, it didn’t, so he will need more time. He will not be involved on Thursday and also not on Sunday. “
