Chelsea legend, Ashley Cole has said that Arsenal have a ‘great opportunity’ to win a silverware this season ahead of their Carabao Cup semi-final with Liverpool.
The former England defender, however, expects Liverpool to have ‘a little bit too much’ over the two legs.
Chelsea now awaits the winner of the semi final clash between Arsenal and Liverpool after seeing off Tottenham to book their place at Wembley stadium on Wednesday.
Arsenal travel to Anfield on Thursday night to face Liverpool to decide who meets Chelsea at Wembley on February 27.
The first leg, which was postponed due to Covid-19 outbreak, takes place a week later than planned.
Cole told Sky Sports, “I think Liverpool have maybe a little bit too much for Arsenal.
“I know they’re going to be missing [Sadio] Mane and [Mohamed] Salah, but I just think it’ll be a little bit too much.
“It’ll be a great game, a fascinating game to be honest.
“They went to Nottingham Forest and underperformed.
“This will be a great opportunity for them to get in a final to stake a claim on getting back to where they feel they should be. And they should be.
“But again, you’re playing against a very, very difficult Liverpool team.”
