Arsenal vs Liverpool live stream: How to watch FA Cup third round game online. Arsenal face Liverpool in a blockbuster FA Cup clash at Emirates Stadium.
Liverpool faces Arsenal in a Premier League match at Emirates Stadium in London, England, on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2024 (1/7/24).
The Arsenal vs Liverpool live stream pits the Premier League's top two teams against one another. With 22 FA Cups between them, this FA Cup third round tie has all the makings of a classic.
Arsenal may have gone three Premier League games without a win but the FA Cup represents an opportunity for a morale-boosting victory. A disappointing 2-1 defeat to Fulham on New Year's Eve was among the worst of the season for Mikel Arteta, who has fond memories of this competition as a former two-time winner as a player and 2019/20 champion as Gunners boss. Takehiro Tomiyasu and Mohamed Elneny are away at the Asian Cup and AFCON respectively, but a strong side, including Bukayo Saka, is expected.
Liverpool may be top of the table but they've lost more players to January's international tournaments. Top scorer Mo Salah and Wataru Endo will both be absent and Jurgen Klopp's counter-pressing side must learn to live without his most in-form attacker and midfielder this month. The Reds were superb against Newcastle on New Year's Day and recorded the Premier League's highest-ever xG – if expected goals are your bag – but expect Klopp to shuffle his pack, with Caoimhin Kelleher a possibility to start in goal and Harvey Elliott likely to be in from the off ahead of a busy month for the young midfielder.

The two Premier League title rivals will lock horns in the pick of the third-round ties.
Arsenal need a boost after back-to-back defeats to West Ham and Fulham, while Liverpool will be out to land a psychological blow on their title rivals.
Liverpool will be without Mohamed Salah for the first time after he joined up with the Egypt squad ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.
Gabriel Jesus (knee) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) are injury doubts for Arsenal.
Takehiro Tomiyasu is heading to the Asian Cup shortly before Sunday's game. Mohamed Elneny has also left for the Africa Cup of Nations whereas Thomas Partey and Fabio Vieira will not be fit in time to play. Jurrien Timber is still a long-term absentee.
Arteta could put out a strong side ahead of a 13-day winter break before their next game, but back-to-back defeats have called into question the form and fitness of some of his starters.
Liverpool have begun a month without Salah and Wataru Endo while Dominik Szoboszlai is out having come off with a hamstring issue during the win over Newcastle.
Klopp was expected to rotate his team but hinted at also fielding a strong lineup in his pre-match press conference. The Reds remain without Thiago, Stefan Bajcetic, Andy Robertson, Kostas Tsimikas, Ben Doak and Joel Matip.
The Merseysiders will feel the absence of Salah but, of course, be competitive even with a rotated side. Nonetheless Arsenal should be able to make home advantage count to seal their spot in round four. The pair could not be split when they met at Anfield just before Christmas as goals from Gabriel and Mo Salah meant the game finished 1-1 to leave the Gunners top of the table.
With a Carabao Cup semi-final against Fulham on Wednesday to consider, Jurgen Klopp will have some selection decisions to make and it would be no surprise to see him give opportunities to a few youngsters.
Mikel Arteta, meanwhile, will be tempted to name a full-strength side as the Gunners aren't back in action in the Premier League until 21st January. It's usually the David v Goliath games that fans are looking out for on FA Cup third round weekend but we could be set for a thriller at the Emirates on Sunday.
Contrastingly, the Gunners displayed resilience, securing a point in a hard-fought match at Anfield, only to face consecutive losses to West Ham and Fulham in the lead-up to the upcoming FA Cup fixtures this weekend. For Mikel Arteta's side, this represents the final opportunity to shake off the lingering disappointment of back-to-back defeats.
Takehiro Tomiyasu and Mohamed Elneny will turn up for Japan and Egypt at the Asian Cup and Africa Cup of Nations respectively.
Jurrien Timber is potentially ruled out for the rest of the season on account of a knee injury, while Thomas Partey and Fabio Vieira join Timber among the long-term injury absentees.
And while Bukayo Saka is unlikely to miss the game despite a niggle, Oleksandr Zinchenko remains a doubt with a calf injury.
Wataru Endo and Mohamed Salah are set to represent the same nations as their Arsenal counterparts at the Asian Cup and AFCON, respectively.
Apart from the long-term absentees in Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic, Ben Doak, Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas are also unavailable for the tie, while Joel Matip may miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
After seemingly picked up a hamstring problem in the Newcastle win on Monday night, Dominik Szoboszlai is a major doubt.
Owen Beck, upon a recall from his loan spell at Dundee, could start at left-back. At the same time, youngsters such as Luke Chambers and Kaide Gordon could also make the squad.However, securing a victory over their title rivals and dealing a blow to the Reds is and should be a priority for Mikel Arteta. Having drawn 1-1 at Anfield, Arsenal know they can hurt their opponents but will not want a repeat scoreline to force a replay on Merseyside.
Liverpool will be without Endo and Mohamed Salah due to their involvement on international duty at the Asian Cup and African Cup of Nations. Whilst Dominik Szoboszlai will miss the game due to a hamstring injury.
Mikel Arteta is hopeful of a return for Oleksandr Zinchenko dependent upon a final training session. However they will not be welcoming back Thomas Partey or Fabio Vieira for a number of weeks according to the manager.
Jurgen Klopp has said that there would be no need to rotate for the game with the Gunners despite it being a cup game. Whilst Arteta’s week break following this clash gives no incentive but to go strong so we are expecting quite the affair.
Mikel Arteta would quietly have been hoping for a fortunate FA Cup draw. His side are coming off the back of consecutive Premier League losses in which they have looked particularly exhausted. The fates have not been kind though.
Liverpool is among the toughest ties they could have been given, but there is at least a caveat of the match being at home. Arteta feels that the Arsenal fans can create an atmosphere capable of challenging that at Anfield, but called on his players to do more to bring that dream to life.
"We are really happy with the atmosphere that we have created at the Emirates," he said in his pre-match press conference. "It has been really supportive. Can we tweak it and make it even more hostile? I think we can. That’s the next step in my opinion. We have to be so grateful for what we’re achieving in our home ground. Sunday is going to be another big one.
Tottenham and Fulham won through to the fourth round of the FA Cup while fellow English Premier League sides Brentford and Wolves will endure a replay after they drew 1-1 on Friday.
Spurs beat Burnley 1-0 with a late goal from Pedro Porro, while Fulham overcame Rotherham 1-0 with a first-half strike from Bobby De Cordova-Reid. In London, Wolves played almost the entire match with 10 men but came from behind to earn a replay against Brentford.
Spurs hasn’t won the FA Cup since 1991 and it made heavy work of a home tie against a side second to last in the league. Although Ange Postecoglou’s team was on top throughout, Burnley defended stoutly and it wasn’t until the 78th minute that Porro got the breakthrough.
Brentford gained the momentum after just nine minutes when João Gomes was sent off for a bad foul. It took the lead shortly before halftime when Neal Maupay controlled a loose ball in the penalty box and fired home.
