Liverpool -The League Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Stoke City went to penalties at Anfield on Tuesday after Stoke levelled the tie by winning the second leg 1-0.
Liverpool were 1-0 up from the first leg, but Marko Arnautovic converted a cross from Bojan Krkic in first-half stoppage time -- despite appearing to be offside -- to make it 1-1 on aggregate.
There were no further goals in either normal time or extra time, so the game went to a penalty shootout.
The winners will play either Everton or Manchester City in the final at Wembley on February 28.
The last of Liverpool's eight League Cup triumphs came in 2012, while Stoke are seeking to reaching the final for the first time since winning the trophy in 1972.
