Liverpool reached the Carabao Cup quarterfinals via a penalty-kick shootout after a thrilling clash with Arsenal ended 5-5 on Wednesday at Anfield.

A basketball-style first half saw the Reds go ahead via a Shkodran Mustafi own goal, only for Lucas Torreira to level before Gabriel Martinelli bagged twice to put the Gunners clear.

James Milner ensured the game was still alive with a penalty kick ahead of the interval. But then, nine minutes into the second period, had a short back-pass punished by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Emphatic strikes at the Kop end from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Divock Origi in the space of four minutes put Jurgen Klopp’s side on level terms again.

Joe Willock looked to have had the last word with a swerving thump from a distance until Origi volleyed in a fifth for the Reds in stoppage time and forced a shootout.

And the hosts were victorious from 12 yards, as Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos’ effort brilliantly, and Curtis Jones kept his nerve to seal it.
