Arsenal appeal for a handball – it touches Milner’s hand as he falls over in the box – there’s no VAR so thankfully no endless replays. Apparently even if there was VAR it probably wouldn’t have been given as it was a natural motion of the Liverpool man falling down.
Gift of a corner to Liverpool as under no pressure at all Maitland-Niles boots it out. MIlner cannot beat the first man though and we’re now two minutes from penalties.
Nico Williams has the choice between a cross to the back post or a shot – he take the second option and the shot is straight at Leno much to the despair of Minamino. Maitland-Niles comes on for Saka. for Arsenal.
Leno is a busy boy at the moment. Jota latches on to a long ball, beats his man and hits a left footed shot which Leno does well to save. From the resulting corner Leno then saves from a Grujic header.
Jota goes close – the former Wolves man runs at the backline, cuts in and fires from just outside the box. It takes a deflection for a corner. That’s more like it from the hosts.
