Neco Williams came on as a second-half substitute for Trent Alexander-Arnold but was unable to help Liverpool find a winning way in the game, against Arsenal.
The Welshman was handed the final 15 minutes and would have hoped he could help the Reds get in front but found it as difficult as the rest, to break down a rigid 10-man defence.
Coming on for our No.66 shows the faith that Jurgen Klopp has with the stand-in right back and he issued a positive statement about the semi-final, after the game.

The 20-year-old said: ‘Only half time.’
Despite many moans and groans, 0-0 is certainly not a bad result and it was always going to be tremendously difficult when the Gunners had everyone behind the ball.
We can now look forward to the second-leg and remain positive of a potential trip to Wembley.

Hopefully, we will perform WAY better in the second half. AFC will want to come out and hopefully that will suit us.
