Date published: Tuesday 8th April 2008 10:04

Abou Diaby smashed inside Jose Reina’s near post after just six minutes to put Arsenal ahead but Liverpool drew level in the 30th minute when Sami Hyypia headed Steven Gerrard’s corner into the top corner off the right-hand post.

And they went ahead in the 69th minute when Fernando Torres got on the end of a Peter Crouch flick-on in the box and turned quickly before superbly curling into the corner from 15 yards.

A superb run from Theo Walcott set up Emmanuel Adebayor to put Arsenal ahead on away goals with six minutes to go but Ryan Babel was pulled down in the box a minute later at the other end and Gerrard stepped up to convert.

Babel then fired home in stoppage time to seal the victory.
