Arsenal v Liverpool: 5 things we learned

  • GK David De Gea

Carragher says Arsenal and his old side showed why they were two of the most entertaining teams in England, but that their defensive frailties will lead to a continued lack of silverware with both teams now undergoing long league droughts.

For Arsenal, Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil scored in quick succession to turn the tables on their rivals after Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah had earlier put Liverpool in control.

"So we gave them [a chance], we opened the door for them in these five minutes and they, with all respect, took the chances". The Reds are still in fourth place, a point in front of Arsenal with 19 games played.

Such were the depths of Arsenal's defensive ineptitude that the players were booed off at halftime at Emirates Stadium.




Klopp said: "He misjudged it".

Jurgen Klopp can see similarities between himself and interim Swansea boss Leon Britton but hopes Liverpool can make it an unhappy start to his spell in temporary charge of the Premier League strugglers. In the end, a 3-3 draw was about right for the two clubs fighting for Top 4 Champions League spots. They all have a lot of pace.

Antonio Conte's side, missing suspended top scorer Alvaro Morata, played most of the game in Everton's half and had 25 attempts on goal to the host's five but the closest they came was when home defender Ashley Williams headed against his own bar trying to clear a cross. Set-piece goals happen but even there we are better, and we score more often than we concede.

"Then we struck back and it's point; usually if you go to Arsenal and get a point it is absolutely OK, we are not insane that we can not see that". The captain was replaced by James Milner who, like his manager, believes Liverpool's squad is young enough to improve. "The easy part is the bit that we're not doing well and it's something we can learn easily and quickly".
