Liverpool vs Arsenal (3-1): A tremendous battle between Liverpool and Arsenal on the pitch of an inanimate Anfield – I think we should never get used to this. Reds and Gunners played a tremendous game that Klopp’s men ended up taking (3-1) thanks to goals from Mane and Robertson, who traced the initial goal from Lacazette with which the team led by Arteta went ahead on the scoreboard. Diogo Jota scored the final goal in the final minutes of the match.
The Liverpool overpowered from start to finish to the Arsenal at Anfield to score his third consecutive victory and confirm if needed, which is the best team in England by far above the rest. The Arsenal, who came to the event grew, it was dwarfed and with the moral touched, aware that lacks much rennet to look into the eyes of one of the brightest footballing machines lately.
The current champion of the Premier had no mercy on the Gunners, lukewarm, and without response to the gale of play and pressure that came over him right away. At the start of the game to dog’s face, with several disputes and frictions, the referee forgave Mane’s direct red in minute 2 for a very clear elbow to Tierney. It was the beginning of the end for Londoners, hopelessly subdued by the deployment and hellish rhythm of the reds.
The set of Arteta saw a thread of hope midway through the first half when Lacazette, after a bad clearance of Robertson, but the 0-1 is the only time he was able to counterattack (25 ‘) in the first half. It was a mirage because three minutes later Mane put the equalizer taking advantage of a shot from Salah that left Leno dead in the small area.
In the exchange of blows, Arsenal was knocked out, forced to survive in their area with no other task than trying to get out alive. Not for those. At 2-1, Robertson ate Bellerin’s toast at the far post, taking advantage of an Alexander-Arnold cross from the right. A goal conceived by the wings, a perfect example of Liverpool’s almost endless offensive repertoire.
Without Thiago, (absent due to injury), Liverpool excelled in every game record against Arsenal in diapers. The reds moved the ball at supersonic speed, ran to the backlash, and the pitchfork, increasingly greased, was undetectable for David Luiz and company, who shook like flans every time they had to start playing from behind.
The tight score was the only thing that kept Arsenal alive, better disposed in the restart, and with more fang from the entrance of Ceballos, a footballer that Arteta cannot afford to reserve on the bench. Lacazette had in his boots the 2-2 in two very clear heads-up but it was done at night against Alisson.
Arsenal grew timidly from Ceballos’s baton but Klopp responded to Arteta’s move by making his debut for Diogo Jota, a footballer who has fallen on his feet at Anfield. The Portuguese was a torment for Bellerin, The result was expanded because Diogo Jota wanted. In his league debut with Liverpool, the first one sent it away from Leno’s three sticks; the second was taken off by Salah when he went over braking but the third was inside. 3-1 final and local victory.A good game between Liverpool and Arsenal and the three points that stayed at the champion’s home.
