Arsenal take on Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, January 7.

Despite their ongoing battle in the Premier League title race, today serves as a pivotal moment for both teams to preserve their hopes of securing silverware this season.

No side has won the FA Cup more than Arsenal as they’re the only team to win it 14 times. However, Liverpool have also been successful in this competition in the past, winning eight titles in their storied history.

The two rivals battled out a 1-1 draw at Anfield just over two weeks ago but the form of the two sides since is rather contrasting. Mikel Arteta’s men suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of West Ham and Fulham, whereas Jurgen Klopp’s Reds took maximum points against Burnley and Newcastle United.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary.

Arsenal vs Liverpool live updates, highlights from FA Cup Third Round

HT: Despite Arsenal being the better side in the first half, they failed to take their chances and may live to regret it. Liverpool did well to keep them at bay and created their own chances at times with their best coming on the stroke of half-time through Alexander-Arnold who rocketed an attempt off the bar. 

45th minute: Alexander-Arnold strikes the bar! He takes an exceptional first touch and slices an effort with immense power through Ramsdale and off the bar. It was an almighty connection from the right of the box.

42nd minute: Saka’s free-kick is floated to the far post but it’s too deep and sails out for a goalkick. 

39th minute: How many chances do Arsenal need to take the lead here? It’s another fantastic ball in from the right and Havertz rises highest to meet it with his head but he can’t head it goalwards, it’s another wasted opportunity. 

37th minute: Rice is urged to shoot by the crowd and he does as they command but he doesn’t make great contact with it and it’s again straight at Alisson.

34th minute: Alexander-Arnold tries to catch Ramsdale out from the free-kick down the left but he slightly overhits it. 

30th minute: Odegaard plays Havertz in on goal but he turns into traffic instead of just hitting it! 

27th minute: It’s another great move from Arsenal and Saka’s shot is hit into the ground which kills its speed on its way into Alisson’s hands. 

22nd minute: Elliott’s corner is met by Nunez but he can’t redirect the header goalwards. He could have done better there. 

17th minute: The Reds have appeared to weather the storm as the game’s tempo now eases slightly. However, Arsenal are still enjoying the majority of possession. 

11th minute: Liverpool are riding their luck here but again Arsenal cannot get the ball over the line. Odegaard smacks the bar and the follow-up shot is well blocked by Alexander-Arnold.

8th minute: Liverpool are all over the shop defensively. Arsenal could really do with taking advantage of their bright start. 

7th minute: It’s another opportunity for Nelson. This time Odegaard cuts the ball back and he can’t quite make good enough contact but it takes a deflection and heads out for a corner.  

3rd minute: What a chance for Reiss Nelson! Ramsdale picks him out beautifully from deep in between the full-back and centre-half. Nelson takes it around Alisson but his touch forces him wide and he can only hit the side-netting. 

1st minute: Liverpool get the game underway!

5 minutes until kickoff: The players are out on the pitch and we’re ready to go.

15 minutes until kickoff: Kickoff is approaching and the players are getting warm…

30 minutes until kickoff: Virgil van Dijk’s absence is explained by Jurgen Klopp: “Virgil is ill. We will see how he feels tomorrow. We need to see if he can make the next one. But today was no chance.”

45 minutes until kickoff: Liverpool have enjoyed their recent journeys to the Emirates, winning three of their last four trips there. 

1 hour until kickoff: Both teams have gone strong for this one! 

1 hour 30 mins until kickoff: As we wait for team news to be announced, we know that Gabriel Jesus is absent from the Arsenal squad today due to a knee injury. It’s been described as “minor” and “not serious”.

2 hours until kickoff: Diogo Jota could be a player to watch out for tonight. He has made more appearances for Liverpool against Arsenal than he has against any other club and has scored seven goals in his nine games against the Gunners.
