Arsenal have to put Sunday’s drama behind them and focus on trying to reach the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup when we take on Liverpool at Anfield this evening.

Unai Emery has made wholesale changes from the side that drew with Crystal Palace in the Premier League at the weekend with Bernd Leno, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Granit Xhaka and David Luiz among those rested.

Mesut Ozil makes his first appearance in a month while Emi Martinez starts in goal. Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac and Rob Holding come into the back four. Lucas Torreira starts in midfield alongside Joe Willock.

Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka get another chance to impress in the Arsenal attack while Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts on the right wing.

Liverpool have also named a weakened side with all their key players rested. Youngsters Neco Williams, Rhian Brewster and Sepp van den Berg all start for the hosts.

These are the teams for the game:


Kelleher, Williams, Gomez, Van den Berg, Milner, Lallana, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Elliott, Origi, Brewster

Subs: Adrian, Koumetio, Larouci, Chirivella, Jones, Kane, Clarkson
