Two weeks later than planned, the Emirates Stadium hosts the deciding leg of Arsenal and Liverpool ’s Carabao Cup semi-final.

After this fixture, originally scheduled for 6 January, was postponed, Anfield hosted the first leg last week as Arsenal clung on for a 0-0 draw despite Granit Xhaka’s dismissal.

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.
