The first half was completely dominated by Liverpool. The home team dominated the action and came with danger to Ramsdale’s goal, who showed some nervousness in some plays, such as when he almost delivered the ball to Henderson’s feet.

The most dangerous move was almost an own goal. After a low cross to the small area, Gabriel Magalhães anticipated Firmino and deflected the ball back, but almost put it against his own goal.

Arsenal’s game was still hampered in the first half by the need for two changes in 25 minutes, due to Cedric’s injury and Xhaka’s expulsion.

In the second half, the home team found it difficult to break Arsenal’s block and few clear chances were created, with 0-0 remaining until the end of the duel.
