Chelsea await in the final which takes place on Sunday, February 27 at Wembley Stadium.

When is Arsenal vs Liverpool?

Arsenal vs Liverpool takes place on Thursday, January 20

The match kicks off at 7.45pm.

The Emirates Stadium plays host to the tie.

Extra-time and penalties await if the scores are level after 90 mins, and away goals do not count as double.

What TV channel and live stream is Arsenal vs Liverpool on?

Arsenal vs Liverpool will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.

Sky begin their coverage at 7pm.

What is the team news?

Martin Odegaard returns as the only Covid absentee from the weekend, while Thomas Partey could also be back in the UK after being knocked out of AFCON with Ghana.

The Emirates match against Liverpool could come too soon for the midfielder but Emile Smith Rowe could operate in a deeper role after missing out in the first leg of the semi-final.

Bukayo Saka is also expected to be back along with Calum Chambers, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares – all four have overcome knocks.

But Granit Xhaka is still suspended after his red card at Anfield – finding a partner for Sambi Lokonga will perhaps be Arteta’s biggest headache.

For Liverpool, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain misses against his former side as he recovers from an ankle injury.

  • Aubameyang breaks silence

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed he is fit and healthy after suffering a heart scare.

    The striker, 32, returned to London from the Africa Cup of Nations after it was discovered he had lesions on his heart.

    The problem ruled him out of Gabon’s clash with Ghana and he is now back in London – where he completed additional checks.

    Aubameyang provided an update on Instagram, saying: “Hi guys, I came back to London to do some additional checks, and I’m very happy to say that my heart is absolutely fine and I’m completely healthy!!

    “Really appreciate all the messages over the last few days and I’m already back at it.”

    But the former Gunners captain looks set to continue training alone in North London.
