• Granit Xhaka sent off early on for denying Diogo Jota clear goalscoring opportunity • Liverpool disappoint in final third and muster just one shot on target • Second leg at the Emirates next Thursday with no away goals in play The timeless tradition of the Granit Xhaka red card has long been the signal for the kind of Arsenal collapse that launches a period of sober reflection at the club, and yet on this night at Anfield it was the trigger for a performance that felt significant for Mikel Arteta’s young team.

Martin Odegaard had tested positive for Covid before the match.

The struggle was clear for Arteta’s players.

The red card might have galvanised Liverpool but for all their possession and territory they failed to create the chances that might overwhelm Arsenal.

In August at the Etihad Stadium he departed for a dangerous challenge on Joao Cancelo.


In its aftermath was one of the finest away performances from ten Arsenal players in recent memory and one that keeps them very much alive in this League Cup semi-final.
