The Carabao Cup semi-final first leg between Arsenal and Liverpool has been postponed because of a “severe outbreak of Covid-19” at Liverpool.

Liverpool had requested a postponement on Tuesday and a statement released by the EFL today confirmed this.

A part of the statement reads: "Having now fully reviewed the circumstances involved, the League has accepted Liverpool's request after determining, albeit reluctantly, that a postponement was the only option as the club looks to mitigate against the further risk of infection amongst its squad and staff alongside ensuring public health was protected by not travelling from Liverpool to London."

The first leg will now be at Anfield on the 13th of January and the second at Emirates Stadium on the 20th of January.
