Thomas Partey: Arsenal ace shown red card for poor challenge on Fabinho in Liverpool loss

Thomas Partey was shown a red card vs Liverpool

Liverpool have reached the Carabao Cup final after beating Arsenal 2-0 on Thursday evening.

It was all to play for at the Emirates Stadium after the first leg ended 0-0.

But it was the Reds who progressed to the final after a convincing display in north London.

Diogo Jota opened the scoresheet in the final half.

He then combined with Trent Alexander-Arnold to bag his second with 15 minutes remaining.

Arsenal finished the game with 10-men as Thomas Partey was sent off in stoppage time.

Partey has been on international duty at the African Cup of Nations in recent weeks.

Ghana were knocked out earlier this week and Partey flew back to London on Thursday afternoon.

He made himself available for the game against Liverpool as he wanted to help Arsenal to the final.

Mikel Arteta named Partey on the bench and he put him on in the 74th minute with the hope that he could change the game.

But Partey was sent off for two yellow cards in quick succession.

He received his first in the 87th minute, before being given his marching orders for a poor challenge moments on Fabinho later. View the moment below…

What was Partey thinking? It really has been a week to forget for the Ghanaian.

Liverpool will now play Chelsea in the final, which takes place at the end of February.
