Liverpool to Face Arsenal in Carabao Fourth Round Match

Liverpool will play Arsenal in next week’s Carabao Cup fourth round of matches.

The Reds will welcome the Gunners to Anfield twice in the space of a matter of days after they face them in the Premier League next Monday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side strolled into the last-16 with a commanding 7-2 win over League One side Lincoln City at Sincil Bank, where Xherdan Shaqiri opened the scoring with a stunning free-kick after nine minutes.

Takumi Minamino measured in a fine shot to make it 2-0 shortly afterwards, with local lad Curtis Jones grabbing two more goals to make it 4-0 by half-time.

Japan international Minamino scored his second in the opening seconds of the second half, with Tayo Edun and Lewis Montsma scoring for Lincoln City either side of a Marko Grujic strike, with Divock Origi scoring the seventh.

Manchester City Struggle to beat Bournemouth

Manchester City battled very harder to beat Bournemouth 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

City youngster Liam Delap – son of Stoke City legend Rory – gave the hosts the lead, only for the Championship side to level before the break through Sam Surridge.

Phil Foden then grabbed the winner 15 minutes from time.
