14 days after the Emirates Stadium hosts its deciding leg of an Arsenal vs Liverpool match, originally set for 6 January 2022 it has been postponed until further notice due to safety concerns. The first game was played last week as Granit Xhaka’s red card led his team 0-0 draw against bitter rivals despite being dismissed in this fixture!
That leaves Mikel Arteta without the midfielder, with the Arsenal manager dealing with a particularly depleted squad having seen a request to postpone the North London Derby granted on Sunday. Liverpool are thus favorites to take on Chelsea in the final, but Arsenal will hope to spring a surprise at home. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.
Where can you watch Arsenal vs Liverpool Live Stream?
