It proved to be a frustrating evening for the Reds, who were unable to make the breakthrough despite dominating possession after Granit Xhaka was sent off for fouling Diogo Jota midway through the first half.

Takumi Minamino missed the hosts' best chance of the evening in the final minute as he blazed over at the Kop end.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alisson - making his Carabao Cup debut - were among those to return to the starting XI.

Indeed, Jürgen Klopp’s team were indebted to Alisson Becker for ensuring they go into next week’s second leg at Emirates Stadium level after the Brazilian made a brilliant second-half save to deny Bukayo Saka.

A textbook example of high pressing from Jordan Henderson, who sprung from midfield to close down Aaron Ramsdale, won Liverpool a corner and ignited the first real spell of pressure on the Arsenal goal.

The expected siege on Arsenal’s goal never materialised, however, with Klopp’s team having a near-monopoly of the ball but without troubling Ramsdale.

And it was Arsenal who nearly took the lead when Tierney’s pass reached Saka on Van Dijk’s blindside, but Alisson had sensed the danger and sped out from his line to make an excellent, sprawling save.
