Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Liverpool

Arsenal face their second trip to Anfield in the space of four days when they visit Liverpool again in the fourth round of the EFL Cup on Thursday night.

The Gunners took the lead in their Premier League visit on Monday, but ultimately fell to a 3-1 defeat at the home of the champions after being outplayed for long stages.

Mikel Arteta 's side have beaten Liverpool twice in the past two months, though, and picked up an impressive win at Leicester City in the last round of this competition.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the second episode of the quickfire double-header.

Pablo Mari has been sidelined since June but is closing in on a return and could be back training ahead of this match. It is unlikely that the centre-back will be in contention for a competitive outing until after the international break, though.
