Diogo Jota, who gave a praiseworthy performance, scored both goals in the 2-0 win over Arsenal. The game was totally dominated by Liverpool after a shaky start in the first 15 minutes of the tie.

Arsenal managed to create chances through Bukayo Saka, Smith-Rowe and Lacazette but failed to convert the chances created. Arsenal were reduced to just 10 men in the 90th minute after Thomas Partey collected his second yellow card of the game after coming on as a substitute in the second half of the encounter.

It was shocking that Thomas Partey had been featured in the Thursday, January 20th, 2022 fixture after just arriving in London from Cameroon 7 hours before kick off. Mikel Arteta was heavily criticised for not allowing the Ghanian to at least take a short break before returning to action. 

The Liverpool vs. Chelsea finals in the Carabao Cup at Wembley Stadium, scheduled for Sunday, February 24, 2022, is expected to be a cracker as Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have never defeated Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea in all competitions.
