Carabao Cup playoffs


Liverpool have a better head to head record historically, coming into the landmark 170th clash against the Blues.The Reds won 71 and lost 58 so far.At home, Liverpool won as many as 48 and lost only 13 of 82 clashes with the Blues.

It is interesting to note that only one of last seven head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.Chelsea took four points from last term meetings with the Reds in the Premier League.

Remarkably Arsenal and Brentford have met on just 12 occasions in their history, the last of which came over 71 years ago. The Bees have won five of those games to four by the Gunners with the other three fixtures ending in draws.

The Gunners, meanwhile, are riding high in the top flight, where four wins in a row have taken them to sixth in the table and eased the anxiety that early defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City prompted.
