Liverpool boss Klopp looking forward to second leg against Arsenal

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool will be fired up for the second-leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Arsenal.

Despite playing with 10-men for the majority of the first-leg, Arsenal managed to frustrate Liverpool in a goalless draw.

They will next face off at the Emirates next week and Klopp says his team will up for the challenge.

“I thought we really started well, I liked it, it was how I wanted to start,” Klopp said.

“We would’ve preferred to have scored the goal instead of them getting a red card. From that moment it looks like we are under pressure [to score] and we had to change the line-up for obvious reasons [before the game].

“In the second half we made a few changes, I thought it looked better and we had clear situations but it was not good enough.

“But it’s a two-legged game and it’s half time. I can’t remember when it was 0-0 at half time, wherever I’ve been, and I thought ‘we have no chance’. We will give it a proper go.”
