The tactical insights on the decisions Mikel Arteta can make today, that could help Arsenal in their quest to defeats Liverpool in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

1) Strong starting lineup

Mikel Arteta would have to go very strong tomorrow against Liverpool who are lacking Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. If Arsenal start the likes of Saka, Smith Rowe and Lacazette, they have a better chance of winning the game. With Ramsdale in goal and the likes of Gabriel and Ben White returning to the starting lineup, the gunners should be able to dominate the defense.

2) Midfield Pivot Of Xhaka and Lokonga

Mikel Arteta started a midfield of Patino (18 year old) and Lokonga in the last cup game for Arsenal, which was detrimental to the club as they could hardly control the center against a championship side. This is why I am of the opinion that the Spanish tactician should use a midfield of Xhaka and Lokonga in the game against Liverpool, while keeping the likes of Tavares far away from the team list.
