47mins: The best chance of the match sees Henry burst clear with incredible pace, only to see Dudek deflect his shot onto the post.

46mins: Brazilian World Cup star Gilberto Silva makes his debut in place of compatriot Edu, who may still be suffering from his clash with team-mate Vieira in the first half.

45mins: The half ends with a poor corner from Riise that sums up Liverpool's efforts so far, while Arsenal can reflect on some good pressure without having made the breakthrough.

11mins: Henry stumbles when set up on the edge of the six-yard box and Stephane Henchoz nips in to turn the ball behind for a corner.

8mins: Moments later Gerrard is late on Henry, and the Liverpool player is lucky to stay on the pitch as the referee chooses not to show a red card. Meanwhile, Vieira returns to the action.

6mins: Steven Gerrard is booked for a wild tackle on Patrick Vieira, and the Frenchman is forced on to the sidelines to receive treatment.
