    Will we see Diogo Jota again tonight?

    Hang on, haven’t we been here before?

    You know, a few days ago.

    Oh yeah, that’s right — different competition.

    This time it’s the second iteration of Liverpool vs Arsenal — but this time in the Carabao Cup.

    Expect packs to be shuffled, expect formations to be tweaked and mistakes to be tolerated with less intensity by the two managers.

    If last season’s fixture, 334 days ago, in the same competition is anything to go by, you can expect goals galore, too.

    This one ended in a 5-5 draw last season — with the Reds wining on penalties in frankly one of the most bonkers games of the season.

    Divock Origi came in to score a 94th-minute equaliser that night and preserve an air of invincibility around Anfield, which still exists today.

    But this one may well be different.

    Mikel Arteta is Gunners manager now and despite Monday’s 3-1 Premier League defeat at Anfield, the Spaniard has a sharp eye for tactical tweaks with a tendency to make opposing teams frustrated.

    Not only that, but Arsenal’s fast forwards are proving to be the perfect foil for any high defence that attempts to catch them out in a bid to apply the press.

    We will see if Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli return for this one tonight, but it could well be the perfect opportunity for the new Brazilian defender to take another step in getting used to English football.

    For Jurgen Klopp, surely a shuffled pack is imminent, with the likes of Curtis Jones, Neco Williams and Takumi Minamino getting more game time.

    Who will play? We shall find out shortly…
