Carabao Cup – Arsenal saved from Liverpool



Liverpool failed to break zero against Arsenal at Anfield Road and will have to define the away semi-final. Xhaka was sent off early in the match and Ramsdale became vital to Arteta.

Arsenal left Anfield Road alive thanks to a 0-0 draw and saved everything for the second leg in a Carabao Cup semi-final against Liverpool.

It was a miracle for the Gunners considering that they played with one less player from minute 24 of the first half due to the expulsion of Granit Xhaka.

The Arsenal midfielder struck Diogo Jota with a kick to the chest to stop a counterattack and had to go to the showers deservedly.

In the first half, Mikel Arteta‘s team did not suffer much, but the second half was a monologue, especially in the last half hour, from Liverpool.

Takumi Minamino had the clearest chance for those led by Jürgen Klopp and was able to undo the very dangerous 0-0 for his team in the second leg.

The Japanese was left in front of the empty goal after a bad rejection by the Arsenal goalkeeper, but he wanted to hit with a volley and sent the ball to the stands.

In the midst of so much suffocating pressure from Liverpool, luck and a great goalkeeper accompanied the Gunners. Aaron Ramsdale became a pillar and reference of the Premier League.

Liverpool, who had been scoring at home since April 14, 2021, also had the advantage of Arsenal’s injuries: Cedric Soares had to start in the first half and Bukayo Saka on the end.

On the side of the Reds, a dialogue error by Klopp could be seen that left a strange phrase about “no really positive case” about Liverpool’s return to the tracks after postponing some games.

In addition, Martin Odegaard tested positive for Covid-19 and it was announced that he would not participate before the meeting.

The return leg will be played at Emirates Stadium on Thursday, January 20, to reach the final of a competition in which Chelsea is already waiting.
