Arsenal fans on Thursday night, January 13, tried all their best to block Liverpool’s iconic anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ when they met with the Reds in the Carabao Cup semifinal.

Despite playing much of the Carabao Cup semifinal first leg match with 10 men, Arsenal players tried their best as they forced the home team to a goalless draw at Anfield.

Granit Xhaka was shown the red card in the early minutes of the game which forced Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to change his formation to a more defensive one against Liverpool.

According to the report on Sportsbible and Football London, Arsenal fans were in joyous momentum all through at Anfield against Liverpool.

What did they do before the Carabao Cup game?

Arsenal fans were in fine voice throughout the game and footage has emerged of the visiting fans attempting to outdo Liverpool’s famous atmosphere ahead of kick-off.

As the home support begins to sing the anthem, boos can be heard from the away fans in the Anfield Road stand.

Mikel Arteta and his wards will want to win the second leg next week at the Emirates stadium for them to have the chance of reaching the final.

Arteta hails 10-Man Arsenal for superb performance against Liverpool

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Mikel Arteta was full of praise for his Arsenal team, who somehow managed to hold off Liverpool in the Carabao Cup semifinal first leg at Anfield with 10 men.

The Arsenal boss hailed his team’s "fight, determination and brotherhood" after the Gunners frustrated Jurgen Klopp’s side to a 0-0 draw.

In a game where Liverpool were heavy favourites, the odds were tipped in the Reds favour once again when Granit Xhaka was dismissed after 24 minutes for denying a goalscoring opportunity.

Xhaka caught Diogo Jota with a high challenge of his own penalty area in what looked like an attempt to quell Andy Robertson’s cross.

While Liverpool had chances including the resulting free kick from Trent Alexander Arnold, some resolute defending from Arsenal throughout the match proved to be the difference.
