Liverpool have been drawn at home to Premier League rivals Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup, after their 2-0 victory at MK Dons on Wednesday night.

The Reds progressed as goals from James Milner and Ki-Jana Hoever sealed a comfortable result in Milton Keynes.

Ensuring their name went into the hat for the draw, Liverpool are pitted against Unai Emery’s Gunners in the next stage, having already gone one better than the past two campaigns.

Arsenal are currently fourth in the Premier League, and progressed beyond the third round after a 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

It will the Reds’ sixth game next month, which begins at home to Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League (Oct 2) and includes the second international break of the campaign.
