Highlights: Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool | Jota's double sends the Reds to Wembley

Watch key highlights from the Reds' Carabao Cup semi-final second leg victory over the Gunners at the Emirates, thanks to two goals from Diogo Jota.



HIGHLIGHTS | Arsenal vs Liverpool (0-2) | Carabao Cup

A goal in each half from Diogo Jota were enough to send us crashing out of the Carabao Cup on a hugely disappointing night at the Emirates.

Having worked so hard at Anfield last week in the first leg of this semi-final to keep the tie in the balance at 0-0, we were unable to make the most of home advantage, and didn't create enough against well organised Liverpool side.

A bright opening quarter of an hour was just about as good as it got for us on the night.

We started on the front with Gabriel Martinelli heavily involved on the left wing. He won two corners in the opening five minutes with his industry and persistence, but it was another set piece that gave us our first opportunity.

Bukayo Saka was fouled just outside the area in a central position, and captain Alexandre Lacazette curled his free-kick against the bar.

We had made all the early running, only for Liverpool to have the ball in the net after 13 minutes. However the vociferous Emirates crowd were relieved to see the offside flag raised against Joel Matip as he scored from close range following a corner.

Seven minutes later though, they had one that did count. Jota ran at Takehiro Tomiyasu on the counter attack, capitalised on a slip from the Japanese full back, then mishit a shot that squirmed into the net from outside the box.

It was very much against the run of play, but after falling behind, we struggled to regain our fluency. The visitors started to enjoy more of the ball, and we failed to threaten as the first half drew to a close.

The second half began with a fine pass over the top from Sambi Lokonga, into the path of Lacazette, but the striker fired over.

Liverpool also blazed a shot over the bar moments later, from an even better position. Kaide Gordon the guilty party from close range after good work again by Jota to outstrip Ben White.

Liverpool came even closer from a corner, when substitute Ibrahima Konate's header thumped against the post.

The game was beginning to get stretched as we went in search of the all-important goal, and we were living on our nerves at times. Martinelli was in the right place in his own box to block a Takumi Minamino shot.

At the other end of the pitch the livewire Brazilian had a rising effort saved at the near post.

Mikel Arteta sent on Thomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah for the final 15 minutes, but it was Liverpool who struck the killer blow.

Jota was the goalscorer again, narrowly beating the offside trap before lifting the ball over the advancing Aaron Ramsdale.

The mountain we now had to climb proved insurmountable, and there was a further blow late on when Partey was sent off for a second bookable offence.

We delivered a display of incredible heart and character to secure a goalless draw in the first leg of our Carabao Cup semi-final with Liverpool despite playing with 10 men for more than 67 minutes at Anfield.

With Granit Xhaka sent off midway through the first half for a tackle on Diogo Jota, we stood firm, dug in and showed a steely resolve to frustrate the home side.

Such a performance delighted Mikel Arteta and his staff, and means it will be winner-takes-all in the second leg at Emirates Stadium next week.

With Martin Odegaard, Emile Smith Rowe and Takehiro Tomiyasu all ruled out of this match, numbers were tight and we had to name a young bench.

The hosts, who were almost at full strength apart from those away on Africa Cup of Nations duty, made a fast start and Aaron Ramsdale had to be alert to deal with a teasing Andy Robertson cross.

We soon lost Cedric to injury to further disrupt Arteta’s plans, and not long afterwards Roberto Firmino looked certain to score when he met another cross from the left only for Ben White to clear off the line.

We were up against it, and the task suddenly became even greater when Xhaka was sent off for taking out Diogo Jota as the last man in the 23rd minute.

Arteta reacted immediately by taking off Eddie Nketiah and bringing on Rob Holding and switching to a back three in an effort to stifle the home attack, and it had the desired effect for the rest of the first half.

Immediately after the restart, Takumi Minamino came close with a cross that nearly flew into the top corner as the hosts laid siege to our goal.

But for all their dominance, we stood firm – getting men behind the ball, defending as though our lives depended on it and, led by the superb Bukayo Saka, proving a threat on the break.

Anfield was getting increasingly restless as we entered the final 20 minutes, and with Arteta and his staff willing the team on animatedly from the touchline, we were growing in confidence.

We then carved out a big chance as Kieran Tierney rampaged forward, and his cross was touched on by Saka in the area before taking a shot that Alisson saved.

It was tight and tense, but in the last minute Liverpool were presented with a huge chance when Ramsdale’s punch came to Minamino in the box, but with an open goal he flashed his shot over the bar.

Despite some late pressure, we stood firm to hold out for what felt like a huge draw considering the circumstances. What a display of character.
