Liverpool Frustrated By 10-Man Arsenal In Cup-Semi Final First Leg

Published

on

Liverpool were left frustrated by 10-man Arsenal in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final at Anfield.

Granit Xhaka was dismissed after 24 minutes for denying a goalscoring opportunity – the Swiss midfielder catching Diogo Jota with a high challenge on the edge of his penalty area as he attempted to cut out Andrew Robertson’s pass.

Trent Alexander-Arnold could not punish Arsenal further from the resulting free-kick, however, and the visitors produced a resolute defensive display to leave on level terms.

Despite coming under intense pressure it was Arsenal who registered the first shot on target 71 minutes into the contest, but a poor first touch by Bukayo Saka allowed Alisson to smother the England international’s shot at close range.

Takumi Minamino blazed over the crossbar when faced with an open goal with Liverpool’s best chance of the match in the closing stages.

The second leg takes place at Emirates Stadium next Thursday at 19:45 GMT.

The winner will face Chelsea in the final at Wembley at the end of February, after Thomas Tuchel’s side completed a 3-0 aggregate victory over Tottenham on Wednesday.

Black Stars coach, Milovan Rajevac, has been sacked, KUBILIVE can report.

The decision was taken following a meeting between the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Ghana Football Association in the aftermath of Ghana’s group-stage exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations last week.

Rajevac, 67, who returned for a second stint with the Black Stars in September 2021, supervised a disappointing AFCON campaign in Cameroon where Ghana picked up just one point from their three group stage games, finishing bottom of Group C.

The Sports Ministry summoned the GFA to a meeting on Friday, January 21, 2022, in which they directed the country’s football governing body to review the coach’s position because the people of Ghana “have lost confidence in the technical team’s ability to deliver success.”

The man of God has made some disclosure over the plans he has for his church and his ministry this year. The man of God is unperturbed about criticism and has bemoaned the ‘pull him down’ spirit.

The man of God who has about 378 branches of the church already has disclosed that he will expand his church in 2022. The overseer of Anointed Chapel Palace Chapel said he is going to open about one thousand branches of churches in 2022.

According to Rev Obofour, the main reason why he is expanding the branches of his church is to win one million souls for God in 2022.

“Currently, I have about 378 churches but this year, I’m expanding the branches to 1,000. Don’t joke with me. We’re going to win 1 million souls this year. People will doubt what I’m saying now because, in Ghana, we hate to see ourselves grow.

“The problem with Ghanaians is that we love, accept foreign things and detest things that are locally made here,” he said in his Facebook live video.
