LIV vs ARS Dream11 : Torrid Arsenal face a stellar Liverpool side as ther miseries look set to become harsher today.
For Arsenal, today’s Carabao Cup fixture is more than about just progressing in the competition. The side are languishing at the moment, riddled with a slew of unsavoury issues which have embroiled the club in an ordeal it owns it needs to break free off immediately.
Struggling to string together a run of wins, Arsenal’s season slumped at the weekend when the club ended up drawing 2-2 to Crystal Palace at home. It was not just the result but rather the manner it came about in with the side letting go slip of a 2-0 lead with their epitomic mistakes in defence seeing the side unravel yet again to go on and miss out on the three points from the tie.
What was an even more cringeworthy moment for the side from the encounter was the behaviour of the club captain Granit Xhaka with the player hurtling abuses at the Arsenal supporters after being substituted. The fallout from the incident have been colossal with supporters smearing manager Emery for his handling of the club, seeing the manager in massive need of a win come today.
And the club couldn’t have asked for a trickier match than the one they face against Liverpool today in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. Although the home side will be without a slew of their regular players with Jurgen Klopp always favouring the young players for this tournament, Arsenal have themselves decided to go in with different names for this one, a combination which will find it extremely difficult to defeat Liverpool.
Liverpool’s Pep Lijnders: “We need freshness to play our game, if we want to play attacking football and want to be competitive, want to see creativity, want to see a high-intensity game, you need freshness. The better the football is the more discussion and the more attractive it is to watch.”
Arsenal manager Unai Emery on the match: “Each match in this competition can be different, and tomorrow is one very good opportunity for us. We will be thinking that the Carabao Cup is important and it’s an opportunity for us to recover confidence and our way.”

LIV vs ARS Dream11 Team Picks
With Arsenal set to encounter a hoard of shots their way given the identity of their defensive framework, one which has been majorly responsible for their decline, we have decided to pick up their goal-keeper for this clash. Shot stopper Emiliano Martinez should manage to muster up a good amount of save points today, making him a safe player to indulge in for this clash.
With both the sides deciding to rest their regular players for this clash, this looks set to be a match where either side will be looking to come hot out of the blocks and pile on the goals. The likelihood of a cleansheet is extremely bleak, seeing us limit ourselves to the more attackingly inclined defenders, names who’ll regularly barrage their way into the opposition’s side of the park.
It sees us pick out the partnership of Joe Gomez and Neco Williams from the home side whilst from Arsenal we are going in with Ainsley Maitland Niles for the imminent encounter.
The first player on our mind for this encounter in this docket was James Milner from Liverpool. The player has been lauded for his versatility, a name who can play in a plethora of positions in the park, seeing his involvement in both attack and defence making him a must have pick for the tie.
Curtis Jones comes in as well for us from the outfit while from Arsenal we are opting for a trivalent of performers beginning with Lucas Torreira. His managing has been inexplicable by Emery, one of the biggest reasons for the manager being smeared but with the player getting a more forward and central role, the likelihood of him registering a goal or assist increases in magnitude today.
Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe are also picked up from the side, two players who have put in some impressive displays in the tournament till now.
The one player apiece for us from either side with us beginning with Gabriel Martinelli from Arsenal. The player scored last week in the Europa League, a player who showed he deserves to get more out in the middle and if Arsenal are going to have any chance of winning this, they’ll need him to be at the pinnacle of his game today.
Liverpool’s Rian Brewster comes in as well to wrap up our Dream 11 side for this impending encounter.
