Woeful Reds locked down by 10-man Arsenal in Carabao Cup semifinal first leg

Arsenal played for more than an hour with 10 men

Liverpool pressure to claim a goalless draw in the first leg of the teams' Carabao Cup semifinal.

The game's key moment came in the 24th minute

Arsenal's Granit Xhaka was sent off for denying Diogo Jota a clear goalscoring opportunity with a high foot that felled the Liverpool forward just outside the Arsenal penalty area.

The incident necessitated a switch in Arsenal tactics to a three-man defence, with Mikel Arteta bringing on Rob Holding for Eddie Nketiah.

It was the away side's second early change, after Calum Chambers replaced the injured Cedric Soares in the 11th minute.
