The first leg highlighted the Gunners' new found grit under boss Mikel Arteta, with his side forced to sit deep for the majority of the match following Granit Xhaka’s early red card.

Conversely, the match also served to show how much Jurgen Klopp's side are missing attacking duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, with the two out on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Both key men will once again be unavailable for the away side for this Covid-19 delayed last-four clash, which will give confidence to a home side looking to set up an all-London final with capital rivals Chelsea.

Here's how to watch an Arsenal vs Liverpool live stream wherever you are in the world.
