Liverpool (AP) – German goalkeeper Bernd Leno has given Arsenal a victory in the League Cup round of 16 against England champions FC Liverpool.
The former Leverkusen player was the match winner at Anfield Road in a 5-4 penalty shootout with two saved shots. After 90 minutes it was 0-0.
Leno saved the penalties from Divock Origi and Harry Wilson, Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian could only parry Mohamed Elneny. The Gunners returned the favor just three days after their 3-1 defeat in the league game to the champions. However, Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp and his counterpart Mikel Arteta had their teams mixed up.
Last season, Liverpool won against Arsenal by penalties in the League Cup. At that time, both clubs had put on a spectacle at 5: 5 in regular playing time.
