Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta issues Tottenham derby threat after Liverpool Carabao Cup draw


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta took a fighting spirit into his post-match interview after his side battled to preserve a 0-0 draw with Liverpool despite going down to 10 men in the first half. The Gunners take on Tottenham in a hotly-anticipated North London Derby on Sunday, which could have huge implications in the Premier League’s race for fourth place. 

Arsenal looked to be fighting a losing battle when Granit Xhaka’s high challenge earned him a red card inside the first 30 minutes. 

Seeing the Swiss get his marching orders has become an all-too familiar sight for the Gunners, and their makeshift side, made so by injuries and Africa Cup of Nations absences, had to dig deep to stay in the match. 

But Liverpool lacked a cutting edge overall with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah also at the tournament. 

Their only shot on target was reserved for second-half stoppage time, and the Gunners had a handful of chances to snatch the lead in the two-legged tie.
