Arsenal have some major problems in the full-back department with Hector Bellerin likely to miss out with a muscle problem, while Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are yet to return to full fitness after their injury layoffs. Emery had used Granit Xhaka as left-back but it remains to be seen if the coach will take the risk, considering Liverpool's attacking flair.
Jurgen Klopp is unbeaten in five league games against the Gunners. Yet again, Man City will be without world-class midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who suffered another knee injury against Fulham in just his second game back from his last knee injury. Asked in his post-match press conference whether he felt aggrieved at the goal being disallowed, he said: "I think it was a goal". If they play on Friday and we play on Sunday then for two days you think about the pressure being more on us.

We are in our mentality that we also need to improve things but each match they are giving us a lot of information for improvement and development and I trust in my players'. That's why I say so far, so good.
"It doesn't look like that will change".
Arsenal were cruising into the quarter finals with a 2-0 lead given to them by goals from Stephan Lichtsteiner and Emile Smith-Rowe, but Guendouzi's 56th minute red card for a tug on Jordan Thompson put their progress in jeopardy.
"It's a pity that it didn't count, we made a few more mistakes tonight than the ref, but it would have been nice if that goal counted".
"And also when they are playing in attacking moments with very quick players like Mane, like Firmino, like Salah, we need to do a very big match in the individual duels against them". They are really strong. "That makes it very interesting as well".
