Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Arsenal

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday night's EFL Cup fourth round tie with Arsenal at Anfield.

Liverpool host Arsenal at Anfield for the second time in the space of four days on Thursday night when the two clubs renew hostilities in the EFL Cup fourth round.

Jurgen Klopp's side ran out 3-1 winners in their Premier League showdown on Monday night, with goals from Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Diogo Jota seeing the dominant hosts come from behind to win.

The victory extended Liverpool's 100% start to the campaign, including a 7-2 thrashing of League One side Lincoln City in the previous round of this competition.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
