Arsenal could set themselves up for a Wembley showdown with Chelsea if they manage to get the better of Liverpool on Thursday night at the Emirates stadium.

The Gunners had a nervy first-leg at Anfield, playing with 10 men for over 65 minutes after Granit Xhaka was sent off however, Arsenal hang on for a 0-0.

Mikel Arteta will be relieved to have many of his key players returning after recovering from injuries that saw the North London derby postponed over the weekend.
