Arsenal dealt Guendouzi blow ahead of Liverpool clash

Hector Bellerin could miss Arsenal’s clash with Liverpool

Travelling to the Emirates Stadium for a Carabao Cup clash with Arsenal tonight, however severe the changes to Unai Emery's side, Blackpool knew they were in for a tough night.

Owen in his statement said the weekend match is a big game for the two clubs, this is because Arsenal FC will move closer to Reds with a win, but if Liverpool win the match, the gap between the two clubs will go wider.

The Frenchman has racked up 73 appearances for the Hornets since joining the club in 2016.

As expected the hosts had plenty of possession at the start of the game but did not test their former goalkeeper Mark Howard in the opening half an hour.

The Gunners were cruising but that was before Matteo Guendouzi picked up a second yellow card and was sent off.

Blackpool were galvanised by the sending off, O'Connor marking his return to the starting line-up with a goal as he nodded home Thompson's corner in the 66th minute.

Predicted line-up against Derby County: Ruben Loftus-Cheek to continue recovery?
Predicted Derby County XI: Carson; Bogle, Tomori, Keogh, Forsyth; Wilson, Huddlestone; Waghorn, Mount, Lawrence; Nugent . Yet while Derby were obliging, they always carried a potent threat of their own with Mount and Harry Wilson pesky.

"But we had them on the back foot and it is credit to the players".

But Emery will not abandon his principles with respect to playing out from the back, convinced Cech can do well.

He returned here but was again left red-faced as he was challenged in the box by Blackpool captain Jay Spearing as Nathan Delfouneso turned into an empty net only to see the goal chalked out for offside.

O'Connor, however, was sent off with six minutes remaining for clattering substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Arsenal held out to reach the last eight.

Blackpool beat QPR 2-0 in the third round to set up a meeting with Arsenal, but lost 3-2 to local rivals Fleetwood on Saturday.
