During normal time, Takumi Minamino rattled the crossbar towards the end of the first half from point-blank range and the Reds found visiting ‘keeper Bernd Leno in fine form after the break.

The Arsenal stopper pulled off a string of fine saves, most notably denying Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota and Marko Grujic.

However, it was to be Arsenal who secured a place in the draw as they prevailed on penalties.
