LIV vs ARS: How Liverpool Could Lineup Without Salah, Mané, Alisson, Thiago And Keïta Tomorrow

If you're looking for information on the Carabao Cup semi-final matches, Liverpool and Arsenal will be playing each other at Anfield on Wednesday night. Of course, the Gunners were beaten by Jurgen Klopp's side during the 2021-2022 season, so Mikel Arteta's men will undoubtedly play with a high degree of winning spirit against the Reds on Sunday in order to earn a victory at home.

Regardless, there is a specific scenario in which the German manager may line up without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané, and Naby Keita tomorrow, since they are now unavailable owing to international commitments, as well as Thiago Alcantara and Alisson Becker, who are all out with injuries. Liverpool are still capable of defeating Arsenal despite the absence of these individuals, as shown by the configuration shown below.

The Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher is anticipated to start against Arsenal on Saturday, since the Brazilian goalkeeper Thiago Silva will not be available. Of course, the Irish goalkeeper has a lot in common with Alisson Becker, which means he has a good chance of keeping a clean sheet against Liverpool on Thursday.

Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konaté will play as twin center-backs under the shape of 4-3-3, while Trent Alexander-Arnold will play as a right-back and Konstantinos Tsimikas will shine as a left-back under the formation of 4-3-3, respectively. According to reports, Jurgen Klopp has won several matches with this specific team, and this formation should be sufficient to withstand the pressure from Arsenal's star players such as Lacazette, Saka, Martinelli, and others.

To be honest, even without Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara, Liverpool still has enough reinforcements in the midfield to be competitive. As a consequence, Fabinho will be used as a single defensive midfielder, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson will be used as box-to-box and deep-lying midfielders, respectively, for the first time this season. Both English players are all-around midfielders who can boost the team's overall performance, both defensively and offensively, particularly in the event that Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka are unable to play for Arsenal due to injury or other reasons.

Despite the absence of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané at the top of the attack, the Reds still have some outstanding and gifted strikers in their ranks. To summarize, Diogo Jota charges down the left flank, Takumi Minamino moves down the right flank, and Roberto Firmino returns to the starting XI in the role of center striker. However, although Arsenal's defense is incredibly balanced and calm, this frontline is powerful enough to upset Mikel Arteta's men in the middle of the park.

Is it possible for Liverpool to win against Arsenal with this team on Sunday?
