Both Liverpool and Fulham will be looking to take one step closer towards the Carabao Cup final when they meet up for the first leg of their semi-finals tie on Wednesday, January 10th.

Two games. That's all that separate both Liverpool and Fulham from this season's Carabao Cup final. The two sides will go head to head for part one of their two legged semi-finals tie, with the winner of this series set to take on either Middlesbrough or Chelsea in the final taking place in February.

Liverpool, who will serve as hosts for the first leg, come into this game in excellent form. The Reds are unbeaten in their last five games across all competitions, including a well-deserved 2-0 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup last weekend. In terms of the Carabao Cup, Jurgen Klopp's men have been in control throughout, recording wins over Leicester City (3-1), Bournemouth (2-1), and West Ham (5-1) to book their spot at this juncture. Their record at Anfield is also quite impressive, with 23 games so far unbeaten on home turf, and it's safe to say that they will be looking to extend that run at Fulham's expense on Wednesday evening.

Meanwhile, Fulham earned their ticket to the semi-finals after narrowly edging out Everton 7-6 on penalties following a one-all draw in regulation time. Marco Silva's team are making their first ever appearance in the semi-finals of the League Cup, so this is unchartered territory for the Cottagers, who have been eliminated at the quarter-finals stage four times prior.

Worryingly, however, for Fulham is their record against Liverpool in this competition. To date, the Cottagers have lost all five of their prior League Cup ties against the Reds, meaning that they will need to overcome a major hoodoo if they hope to progress to the finals for what would be the first time in club history.

Team news: Liverpool vs Fulham

Liverpool: The hosts will have to make do without key defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, who sustained a knee injury during his team's 2-0 win over Arsenal.

However, both Mohamed Salah and Wataru Endo will miss out due to international duty at the AFCON and the AFC Asian Cup respectively.

Fulham: Fode Ballo-Toure, Alex Iwobi, and Calvin Bassey are all representing their countries at the AFCON tournament so will not be involved here. Both Adama Traore and Tim Ream are expected to miss this tie due to injuries.
