There will be a clash between Liverpool and Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup. In the aftermath of the Gunners’ victory on the Leicester lawn, the Reds took advantage of weak opposition to spend 90 minutes more than quiet. Residents of League One, the third English echelon, the Lincoln City players were literally crushed by a very clearly rejuvenated Liverpool team but with, all the same, elements of experience like Xherdan Shaqiri who opened the scoring in the 9th minute before Takumi Minamino does the break nine minutes later.
In the last quarter of an hour before the break, 19-year-old Curtis Jones scored twice. After a fifth goal signed Minamino, Tayo Edun saved the honor for Lincoln City … but that did not stop the players of Jürgen Klopp who spiked the addition by Marko Grujic shortly after the hour mark and Divock Origi at the very end of the match, Lewis Montsma going to deceive Adrian a second time. Liverpool win very easily (2-7) and will receive Arsenal next week.
