Ten-man Arsenal side held Liverpool to a scoreless draw at Anfield in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final Thursday.
Arsenal were forced to play more than 65 minutes with ten men after Granit Xhaka was sent off for a wild challenge on Diogo Jota.
Despite dominating possession, the Reds were unable to muster up a single shot on target until stoppage time as Arsenal held out for a priceless draw ahead of the return leg at the Emirates.
Liverpool should have won it in injury time – but Takumi Minamino, deputising for Salah and Mane away at AFCON, missed a sitter from eight yards out.
The winner between Arsenal and Liverpool over two legs will face Chelsea in the final at Wembley.
