Liverpool were left frustrated as the ten men of Arsenal played out a goalless draw in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie on Thursday night.

It was more of the same in the second half as the Reds struggled to create any clear-cut chances against a steadfast Arsenal defence, who held on for a 0-0 draw on a frustrating night for Liverpool.

Williams led a late charge as the Reds continued to mount the pressure in the final minutes, but it wasn't to be as they were left frustrated by a combination of their own sub-par finishing ability and a resolute Arsenal defence.

Both sides went into the break on level terms without registering a shot on target, despite Liverpool dominating the ball against the ten men of Arsenal, who saw Granit Xhaka sent off midway through the half for denying Diogo Jota a clear goalscoring opportunity.

It was a cagey second half as Arsenal sat in deep and invited the Reds to find holes in their backline whilst also picking their own moments well to move higher up the pitch and relieve some pressure.

The visitors had somewhat of a shaky start in the opening five minutes which the Reds looked to take advantage of, with two early corners and a half-chance for Roberto Firmino from Andy Robertson's cross.

Bukayo Saka was undoubtedly the Gunners' biggest threat through his runs from deep, with Robertson picking up a yellow card for bringing down the youngster and thwarting a dangerous counter.
