AFCON 20/1/2022. Four games in the African Cup of Nations. There is also a tasty second-leg in the Carabao Cup between Arsenal v Liverpool.
AFCON 20/1/2022 – Carabao Cup – Arsenal v Liverpool
- This game is under threat after Arsenal couldn’t field a team against Tottenham on Sunday, though the Gunners hope to welcome back up to five players here.
- Cedric Soares is unlikely to recover from injury in time but Mikel Arteta hopes to have Martin Odegaard,Takehiro Tomiyasu, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe back for Thursday.
- Granit Xhaka is suspended for two matches after his straight red card in the 0-0 draw at Anfield last week.
- Given how short on numbers Arsenal are, their decision to loan out Pablo Mari, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Folarin Balogun has been criticised. They have also terminated Sead Kolasinac’s contract.
- Should this game go ahead then Mikel Arteta may have to use Ben White in central midfield with Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny away at AFCON.
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came off injured against Brentford at the weekend and will miss out here.
- Curtis Jones could move into the front three as a result with James Milner returning in midfield. Takumi Minamino is an alternative option, albeit on the left wing.
- Jurgen Klopp may ponder a change at centre-back with Ibrahima Konate or Joe Gomez coming in for Joel Matip.
