Video: Martinelli puts Arsenal in front at Anfield after Liverpool are caught cold from quick free-kick

Gabriel Martinelli has fired Arsenal in front against Liverpool in a Carabao Cup fourth found tie on Wednesday night.

Liverpool took the lead thanks to a Shkodran Mustafi own goal in the sixth minute at Anfield, but the Gunners have since managed to fight their way back into the contest.

Lucas Torreira’s close-range finish drew Arsenal level on the quarter-of-an-hour mark, and the Uruguayan midfielder has also had a huge hand in the visitors’ second goal of the game.

Torreira’s quick free-kick caught Liverpool’s defence cold and Ainsely Maitland-Niles was able to capitalise, firing a low cross into the middle of the penalty area which rebounded into the path of Martinelli, who smashed the ball into the roof of the net.
