Confirmed: The effect that Carabao Cup rearrangement has had on Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Burnley

Liverpool call off first leg of Carabao Cup semi-final

Mounting injuries and a COVID-19 outbreak in the Liverpool camp has meant that the first leg of their semi-final clash with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup has been postponed.

The tie, initially expected to be held this Thursday, has now been rescheduled for the 20th January, with the Anfield leg remaining on the 13th, handing Arsenal an advantage of having the second leg at home.

This comes as Jurgen Klopp’s side were forced to cancel their training session on Tuesday evening, and close Melwood training centre on Wednesday, amid a fear of a COVID-19 outbreak after their 2-2 draw with Chelsea, where three players and Klopp himself were already missing after testing positive.

But, the cancellation has had a knock-on effect.

Arsenal vs Burnley the collateral damage

The new date for the second leg fell just 40 hours before Arsenal were due to take on Burnley in the Premier League, meaning that a change was always likely.

Now, as per the reliable James Olley, a decision has been made.

The Gunners’ clash with Burnley at The Emirates Stadium has been rearranged, from a Saturday 3pm affair to Sunday at 2pm. And while this gives the Arsenal players an extra day’s rest, it will undoubtedly throw a spanner in the works of hundreds if not thousands of fans who had bought tickets to the game on its initial date.

Harry Kane discusses power dynamic between Tottenham & Arsenal

Harry Kane discusses power dynamic between Tottenham & Arsenal

Tottenham vs Arsenal

Arsenal and Tottenham were set to face off in the second north London derby of the season on Sunday evening.

However, owing to a combination of Covid-19, injuries and players being at the AFCON, the former managed to get the game postponed:

Tottenham were left understandably frustrated by the decision, as facing a weakened Arsenal squad would have handed Antonio Conte’s side a great chance to get revenge for the 3-1 loss they suffered at the hands of their bitter rivals earlier in the season.

Tottenham continue to finish above Arsenal

Despite losing 3-1 in their last meeting, and Arsenal historically being the superior side, though, it is Tottenham who have finished above the Gunners in the last few Premier League campaigns.

Spurs secured 7th spot last term, with Arsenal 8th. In 2019/20, Arsenal finished 8th and Spurs 6th. In 2018/19, the Gunners finished 5th and Tottenham 4th. In 2017/18, Arsenal secured 6th spot but Tottenham were 3rd. In 2016/17, Arsenal were 5th but Tottenham 2nd.

Arsenal, all told, have not finished above Spurs in the league since back in 2015/16.

So, it is easy to see why Harry Kane argued recently that the history of the north London divide has changed somewhat over the last five or six years:

“Before I broke into the team, our history wasn’t great against Arsenal. In terms of playing against them and finishing above them in the Premier League.

“But that’s kind of changed during the last five or six years now. Look, Arsenal are a great side. They have been building over the last few years, I feel.

“And now they are reaching a high level.”

Bielsa provides update on Bamford’s status for Leeds vs Newcastle

Marcelo Bielsa on Patrick Bamford’s status for Newcastle & latest Leeds double blow

 

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has, on Sunday, provided an update on the fitness of star striker Patrick Bamford, as well as several other members of his squad.

Harrison bags hat-trick

Bielsa, of course, guided his troops back into action a short time ago.

After seeing the club’s FA Cup hopes brought to an end at the hands of West Ham last weekend, the Whites returned to the London Stadium, this time eyeing a 2nd successive victory in the Premier League for the first time all season.

And, when all was said and done, make it six points from six is precisely what Leeds went on to do.

A game of the season contender, featuring drama, chances and goals galore, ultimately culminated in the visitors emerging on the right side of a 3-2 scoreline.

Jack Harrison proved the star of the show, bagging all three of Leeds’ goals, to deal a hefty blow to West Ham’s top-4 hopes.

‘Could be an option’

Whilst they eventually emerged victorious on Sunday, though, Leeds’ endeavours at the London Stadium came at a cost.

This came as yet another pair of key members of Marcelo Bielsa’s squad were added to the lengthy list of walking wounded in west Yorkshire.

Remarkably, in the space of 60 first-half seconds, both Junior Firpo and Adam Forshaw pulled up with hamstring problems, eventually resulting in the pair limping out of proceedings.

Speaking to the media post-match, Leeds’ boss was therefore inevitably asked for an update on the wellbeing of the latest additions to the treatment table at the club.

And Bielsa simply went on to confirm that Firpo and Forshaw have picked up ‘muscular problems’:

Even more significant, meanwhile, was an update on the fitness of Patrick Bamford.

Hitman Bamford, who missed out once more this afternoon as a precaution, ‘could be an option’ to feature in Leeds’ next outing versus Newcastle, Bielsa confirmed.

Also in with a shot of facing the Magpies, albeit less likely, are both Jamie Shackleton and Tyler Roberts:

‘(Patrick) Bamford could be an option [for the next game], but also after a long period of inactivity and slightly less chance (Jamie) Shackleton and (Tyler) Roberts.’

How close Liverpool pair are to breaking all-time PL defender assist record after Brentford

 

The latest assists bagged by Liverpool pair Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold during the club’s meeting with Brentford have seen the defenders inch ever closer to an impressive Premier League benchmark.

Minamino amongst the goals

Jurgen Klopp’s under-manned Reds were of course back in action earlier today.

Sans the services of the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita, Liverpool welcomed Thomas Frank’s Brentford to Anfield, eyeing a return to winning ways on the back of just two points secured from the club’s last three Premier League outings.

And, when all was said and done on Merseyside, emerge with a comfortable victory is precisely what the day’s hosts managed.

On the back of a disappointing first-half display, Klopp’s men returned for the 2nd-half looking revitalised, eventually culminating in all of Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Takumi Minamino finding the net en route to a 3-0 result:

Robbo closing on Baines

As so often proves the case for Liverpool, the club’s full-backs proved central to their eventual triumph on Sunday afternoon.

Both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson looked attacking threats throughout, with the stoppers having eventually been rewarded for their efforts courtesy of the assists for Fabinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain respectively.

And, in the process, both inched ever closer to etching their names indellibly into the history books of the Premier League.

As per William Hill, Robertson, despite having played less than half the number of games, is now just nine assists off breaking Leighton Baines’ record as the all-time top assisting defender in the Premier League.

Alexander-Arnold, meanwhile, in 56 games fewer than teammate Robertson, sits just two assists back of the Scot:
