Liverpool arrived at the League Cup quarter-finals in exciting style as their amazing 5-5 draw against Arsenal was trailed by a 5-4 penalty shootout triumph.
Both Liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp and Arsenal manager Unai Emery made 11 changes for the fourth round tie, yet the understudies presented one of the most engaging rounds of the period at Anfield as the Gunners wasted different leads.
In the shoot-out, Dani Ceballos’ punishment was spared by 20-year-old Irish guardian Caoimhin Kelleher before Liverpool-brought into the world 18-year-old Curtis Jones changed over the triumphant kick.
Ozil selected Bukayo Saka in space and when his shot was spared, the plain Lucas Torreira opened home.
Emery’s group led the pack in the 26th moment through Gabriel Martinelli. Martinelli struck again 10 minutes after the fact with his seventh objective in seven appearances this season.
James Milner diminished Liverpool’s deficiency with a 43rd-minute penalty before Ainsley Maitland-Niles got Arsenal’s fourth objective in the 54th moment.
Oxlade-Chamberlain got one back for Liverpool with a deafening long-extend drive four minutes after the fact.
Amazingly, Origi gymnastically volleyed Liverpool’s equalizer in stoppage time, making way for their shoot-out progress.
