The Reds played with one more for most of the game, but finished 0-0 against the Gunners, who will be home in the second leg.
For the first leg of one of the Carabao Cup semi-finals, Liverpool drew 0-0 with Arsenal at Anfield. The meeting opened the series that will define which of the two will meet Chelsea in the final, winner of Tottenham.

Time passed and the 0-0 prevailed on the scoreboard until the referee’s final whistle. Arsenal had a great result taking into account their numerical inferiority and now they will have the chance to turn history in their favor. next Thursday 20 at 4:45 p.m., when they define the second finalist in the Emirates Stadium.
