    Arsenal fans love Maitland-Niles’ ‘ice cold’ penalty technique vs Liverpool but Arteta fears it’ll give him heart attack

    ARSENAL boss Mikel Arteta joked that Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ ice-cold penalty technique is going to give him a heart attack.
    The versatile England midfielder has drawn plaudits from Gunners fans for his nerves of steel from spot-kicks.

    The 23-year-old was at it again in Arsenal’s Carabao Cup penalty shoot-out win over Liverpool at Anfield.
    Maitland-Niles emerged from the bench to score from the spot with his trademark slow run-up before converting with ease.
    It was the third time in a year the former Ipswich Town loanee has comfortably swept home a penalty against Liverpool.
    Maitland-Niles converted against Reds keeper Adrian from the spot in front of The Kop during the same competition last October.
    Liverpool’s No1 Alisson was no match either when he also produced a ridiculously-cool finish at Wembley in the Community Shield.
    That followed a series of casual efforts in pre-season’s gone by, including an audacious Panenka against Atletico Madrid back in 2018.
    His latest effort, which saw Adrian dive the wrong way, even cracked Maitland-Niles up and fans on social media had a field day.

    One Twitter user wrote: “Ainsley Maitland-Niles turns into prime Pele when he gets to the penalty spot. Cold as ice.”

    A second tweeted: “Has Maitland-Niles ever experienced ‘nerves’ in his life? I’m seriously starting to doubt it.”
    A third added: “That smile, that damn smile. Maitland-Niles is something else from 12 yards.”
    Speaking afterwards, Arsenal boss Arteta hailed the player for continuing to do the business from the spot – even if it gives him a fright.
    He said: “I told him in the dressing room that I’m going to have a heart attack because with his body language… Jesus Christ!
    “He puts it in the net which is the reason why he was one of the subs.”

    One day I hope to have the confidence of Ainsley Maitland-Niles taking a penalty

    Carabao Cup draw LIVE REACTION: Arsenal face Man City, Tottenham get Stoke, Everton meet Man Utd – latest updates

    MORE KLOPP
    Asked what was missing, the Liverpool gaffer adds: “The goals! So many things are different when you mix it up in decisive positions.
    “There weren’t a lot of chances in this game, there was a lot of hard work from both teams, but I like what the boys showed.
    “It’s not about everything being perfectly tuned, you just go for it and that’s what I like.
    “We don’t have too many choices in defence, J will be back after the international break which is good and we have the full orchestra again.
    “Mo can just play 90 minutes, that’s it.

    Carabao Cup draw: Arsenal get Man City in quarter-finals while Man Utd travel to red-hot Everton

    ARSENAL will take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after edging past Liverpool on penalties.
    Moments after Bernd Leno’s heroics at Anfield, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta found out he would take on his former mentor, Pep Guardiola.

    Arteta helped Man City win the Carabao Cup TWICE while Guardiola’s assistant, in 2017-18 and 2018-19.
    But now he will lead his new side, Arsenal, against his former team in a bid to add to his silverware haul.
    Arteta has already won the FA Cup and Community Shield since taking over from Unai Emery at the Emirates a year ago.
    Elsewhere, red-hot Everton host Manchester United – who had earlier been drawn into the Champions League Group of Death.

    Man Utd battered Brighton 3-0 to book their place in the last-eight, while the Toffees annihilated West Ham to keep up their scintillating form.
    Tottenham will take a trip to Stoke – who beat Aston Villa away from home earlier on Thursday.
    Spurs themselves edged past Chelsea on penalties in an exciting game – which included a row between Jose Mourinho and Frank Lampard, as well as Eric Dier darting off the pitch mid-game to use the toilet.

    And Brentford – who battered Fulham 3-0 in a repeat of the 2020 Championship play-off final – host Newcastle.

    Liverpool 0 Arsenal 0 (4-5 on pens): Leno the hero as he saves Origi and Wilson penalties as Arsenal reach cup quarters

    ON the day that new coronavirus restrictions were imposed on Merseyside, Arsenal put Liverpool into full lockdown.
    It was the first time in 39 games that Jurgen Klopp’s Champions had failed to score at fortress Anfield, a remarkable run stretching all the way back to a Champions League clash with Bayern Munich back in February 2019.

    And that was enough to take the rejuvenated Gunners through to the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after edging victory in a sudden-death penalty shoot-out.
    Bernd Leno was the Arsenal hero, saving spot kicks from Divock Origi and Harry Wilson before Joe Willock’s decisive effort just crept past Liverpool keeper Adrian.
    And the win was a blessed relief for Mikel Arteta’s team after conceding 33 goals in their previous nine visits to Anfield.
    Now Arsenal will believe they can go all the way to add this trophy to the FA Cup and the Community Shield which they have already picked up in the past two months.

    Not that Klopp will be losing too much sleep over this rare shut-out.
    He has far bigger fish to fry this season and was probably still mulling over a Champions League draw which has pitched his team up against Ajax, Atalanta and Midtjylland.
    Arsenal will learn their Europa League fate this afternoon but will be more convinced than ever that things are heading in the right direction.

    This time last year Unai Emery was on the brink of the sack and Granit Xhaka thought he had burned his Arsenal bridges forever when he was subbed off against Crystal Palace and told the Emirates crowd to ‘eff off’.

    5

    Bernd Leno was forced into a string of brilliant saves to keep Liverpool at bayCredit: PA:Press Association

    But the Swiss midfielder has been completely rehabilitated under Arteta and this was the first time since that he has started the game as captain.
    Three days after Xhaka’s infamous meltdown these teams fought out an extraordinary 5-5 draw at the same stage of the Carabao Cup.
    It was one of the most extraordinary games in the competition’s history, finally settled in Liverpool’s favour on penalties.
    But that was back in the pre-Covid days when more than 52,000 fans turned up to watch two reserve teams knocking seven bells out of each other.
    So this one was never going to reach those levels of excitement, particularly coming just three days after meeting here in the Premier League.
    Both managers predictably made wholesale changes to their starting line-ups, which meant a first Liverpool start for £45million Diogo Jota alongside Mo Salah and Takumi Minamino.
    Yet it was Arsenal who showed the greater attacking intent early on and they could have been ahead as early as the 7th minute.
    Xkaka’s pass opened up Liverpool’s high defensive line to the pace of Nicolas Pepe, who worked the ball to Eddie Nketiah via Joe Willock.

    But the young Gunners striker was caught in two minds as he was confronted by keeper Adrian and didn’t get any kind of conviction into his shot.
    And for all their subsequent possession in promising areas, the visitors were unable to create too many more problems for Klopp’s men.
    Not that Liverpool were any better and it took the best part of 45 minutes for them to seriously threaten.
    Jota was convinced he should have had a penalty when he was brought down right on the edge of the area by Dani Ceballos.
    But referee Kevin Friend called it dead right despite not having the assistance of VAR and awarded Liverpool a free-kick which was only partially cleared to Neco Williams.
    The young Welshman’s chip over the top picked out Jota for a flying header which Bernd Leno parried straight to the lurking Minamino.
    But the Japanese international couldn’t keep his shot down with the goal at his mercy and volleyed powerfully against the bar when he should have scored with virtually the last kick of the first-half.

    5

    Diogo Jota started the match having scored against the Gunners in the league at the weekendCredit: AFP or licensors
    And if Leno was less than convincing on that occasion, there was no doubting the quality of his 53rd minute save from Virgil van Dijk.
    Klopp had planned to withdraw his captain at half-time but had a change of heart with the match so evenly poised at the break.
    And Van Dijk almost rewarded his manager’s persistence when he applied a first time shot to Marko Grujic’s downward header which Leno did well to claw away at the base of the post.
    That was the signal for Liverpool to really start turning the screw, with Jota’s deflected effort flying just wide before Grujic drew another sharp save from Leno.
    Many Arsenal fans wondered if Arteta had sold the wrong keeper when he allowed Emiliano Martinez to sign for Aston Villa the other week.
    But German international Leno certainly earned his pay last night with further saves to deny Jota and Grujic again.
    It wasn’t all one-way traffic, though, and Rob Holding’s 70th minute bullet header threatened to break the deadlock but was directed straight at Adrian.

    LIVERPOOL face Arsenal just three days after an impressive Premier League win over the Gunners.
    Jurgen Klopp lauded the Reds’ exceptional performance during the 3-1 victory and was so impressed with his side that he even took Roy Keane to task for saying his side were “sloppy” at times.

    Team news
    Both managers will assess their squads following Liverpool’s 3-1 win on Monday.
    But fringe players such as Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri will hope to earn another start as well as youngsters like Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliot.

    Diogo Jota will also expect to be in the starting line-up after coming off the bench to score in the league game.
    Eddie Nketiah and Nicolas Pepe are likely to start for Arsenal after coming on as substitutes.

    80. That was absolutely majestic from Pogba!

    He takes the freekick from 25 yards out and leaves the goalkeeper stood watching the shot in awe.

    A right-footed strike finds its way through the wall and bounces off the left post into the opposite corner of the goal.

    Liverpool vs Arsenal: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and team news for Carabao Cup tie

    LIVERPOOL take on Arsenal just three days after an impressive win over the Gunners in the Premier League.
    Jurgen Klopp lauded the Reds’ exceptional performance during the 3-1 victory and was so impressed with his side that he even took Roy Keane to task for saying his side were “sloppy” at times.

    Diogo Jota will expect to start after coming off the bench to score a debut goal against Arsenal on MondayCredit: EPA

    But Klopp will be expected to field a team more like the one that beat Lincoln 7-2 last week for this rematch with the North Londoners.
    Mikel Arteta is also likely to rotate his squad after his fringe players impressed at Leicester last week.
    What time does Liverpool vs Arsenal kick off?
    Liverpool take on Arsenal on Thursday, October 1.
    The match kicks off at 7.45pm at Anfield.
    The two sides last met in this competition a year ago when they played out an incredible 5-5 draw at this stage before the Reds won on penalties.
    What TV channel is Liverpool vs Arsenal on and can I live stream it?
    Liverpool vs Arsenal is live on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event.
    Coverage commences at 7.30pm – 15 minutes before kick-off.

    Team news
    Both managers will assess their squads following Liverpool’s 3-1 win on Monday.
    But fringe players such as Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri will hope to earn another start as well as youngsters like Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliot.

    Diogo Jota will also expect to be in the starting line-up after coming off the bench to score in the league game.
    Eddie Nketiah and Nicolas Pepe are likely to start for Arsenal after coming on as substitutes.

    Carabao Cup round-up: Newcastle scrape past Newport on penalties as Man City crush Burnley and Everton thump West Ham

    NEWCASTLE edged past Newport on penalties after being given an almighty shock as Manchester City and Everton also booked their places in the next round of the Carabao Cup.
    SunSport heads around the grounds to round-up the four cup matches from Wednesday evening…

    NEWPORT 1 NEWCASTLE 1 (4-5 on pens)

    NEWCASTLE were just three minutes away from being dumped out of the Carabao Cup at the expense of League Two Newport.
    Tristan Abrahams had given the hosts the perfect start with his fifth-minute strike.
    And Newport – the lowest-ranked team left in the competition – looked set to stun Steve Bruce’s side.
    But Jonjo Shelvey scored with three minutes of the 90 remaining to take the game to penatlies.

    Despite a miss from Joelinton, the Newcastle survived the spot-kicks to progress to the next round.
    Mark Gillespie saved Ryan Taylor’s effort and Brandon Cooper blazed over the bar to hand Newcastle the tie.
    Callum Wilson, Fabian Schar, Shelvey, Jacob Murphy and Sean Longstaff all converted from the spot.

    FERRAN TORRES announced his arrival at Manchester City with a dazzling display as Pep Guardiola’s remarkable record in this competition went on.

    The £20.8million summer signing from Valencia scored his first goal for his new club soon after putting one on a plate for Raheem Sterling.
    The England forward scored twice – his first club goals of the season.
    But Sterling could have had a hatful as City threatened to hand out another cup hiding to Burnley.
    Home goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell had looked set to ruffle Pep’s feathers as he made a string of excellent saves.
    This cup may not be their top priority – but City are clearly not going to let it go easily as they stormed to a 3-0 win.

    DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN kept his superb form going with a sensational hat-trick to down West Ham.
    The Everton striker scored in the 11th minute, only for Robert Snodgrass to draw the Hammers level in the first minute of the second half.
    Richarlison put the Toffees back in front ten minute later, before Calvert-Lewin scored twice late on to complete his hat-trick.
