In the League Cup semi-final first leg, Liverpool were unable to distance themselves from Arsenal at home. However, the Gunners played with their scores long after Granit Xhaka was eliminated.
Both teams played at full strength and made clear their determination to reach the final right from the start of the match. Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka was a bit excited. Halfway through the first half, the Swiss put his foot on Diogo Jota’s chest, and red was the justified referee.
But even with another player, Liverpool could not compete with Arsenal, who had already exited Suarez injured before Xhaka’s red card.
We had to wait for the danger from the home team until the end of the first half. Minamino had some chances, but couldn’t get into the net. In between, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson had to save a shot from Saka.
However, in the end, he stayed at 0-0 and so the return leg remains exciting. It will be completed in a week at Arsenal. The winner will face Chelsea in the final.
