Liverpool underperformed as they drew against 10-man Arsenal in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final.
A week later than initially scheduled, the two Premier League sides squared off in the first leg on Thursday.
Liverpool dominated possession and they were handed an early boost. This came as Xhaka was sent off for denying the hosts a goal-scoring opportunity. He caught Diogo Jota with a high boot just outside the penalty area.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were unable to punish their opponents. Arsenal defended well as they held Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield.
The sides meet in the second leg at the Emirates on Thursday, January 20.
