Arsenal qualified for the quarter-finals of the League Cup on Thursday at the expense of Liverpool.

The 'Gunners' won at Anfield after penalties from the 'Reds': 4-5.

Despite big chances on both sides, no goals were scored in regular time, so penalties had to be the decision.

Mohamed Elneny was the first to miss on behalf of Arsenal, but then Divock Origi and Harry Wilson did that on behalf of Liverpool, which resulted in Arsenal still converting.

Virgil van Dijk had a basic place at Liverpool.

He was changed after an hour of play, probably as agreed.

Georginio Wijnaldum came in fifteen minutes before the end and convincingly used the home club's second penalty kick.

Liverpool can focus on the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League due to the elimination.

Manager Jürgen Klopp's team was linked to Ajax, among others, at the draw for the group stage of the million ball earlier on Thursday.

Fulham and Aston Villa blamed themselves on Thursday in the eighth finals of the League Cup against a Championship club.

Fulham, where Kenny Tete was missing due to an injury, lost no less than 3-0 to Brentford and Aston Villa, where Anwar El Ghazi appeared at the kick-off, 0-1 to Stoke City.

Previously, Tottenham Hotspur (after penalties against Chelsea), Newcastle United (after penalties against Newport County), defending champions Manchester City (0-3 against Burnley), Manchester United (0-3 against Brighton & Hove Albion) and Everton (4-1) against West Ham United) in the quarter-finals.
