Liverpool have made a formal request to postpone Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg with Arsenal.
The Reds postponed training on Tuesday due to a number of Covid cases.
A Liverpool statement said: “Among the considerations which led to today’s application to the EFL is the need for travelling supporters to be given as much notice as possible of any potential postponement.

“With no prospect of the current situation improving ahead of Thursday’s fixture and the potential for it to worsen, the club considers it both prudent and reasonable to ask for the fixture to be rescheduled.
“Liverpool FC will offer a further update on the application process, as well as the resumption of training, in due course.”
An EFL spokesperson said Liverpool’s request “will now be considered in accordance with the competition rules as set out at the start of the season alongside information submitted by the club”.
