The visit of the fifth-placed Gunners was seen as a major test of Liverpool's title credentials, coming during a busy period of fixtures including Thursday's upcoming clash with champions Manchester City at the Etihad. The second goal was outstanding, and it started with brilliant defending when Sadio [Mané] won the ball, for Bobby [Firmino] to go through the Arsenal backline. We only can think now of the match on Tuesday [against Fulham] and know the difference between Liverpool and us was not like today's result.
Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from their morale-crushing defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
"And we should be able to pull everything out of the locker for that game".
But after suffering an early warning when Arsenal took the lead in the 11th minute, Klopp's side displayed the very best of their high-paced, powerful, attacking football to register their ninth league win in a row.
Mane and Salah's penalty had the game wrapped up by half-time and Firmino completed his hat-trick from the spot as Jurgen Klopp's men extended their unbeaten league start to 20 games and took another significant step towards a first league title since 1989/1990.
"Now we have quite a distance between that, but do I feel that's already done? No. In the three-and-a-half years we have had more penalties not given when they were penalties and you think, hmph, hmph, hmph".
"They scored three quick goals and it was a hard moment for us".Читайте также: Serena, Federer pose for GOAT selfie
"If I talk to people, it's like: 'Bobby, eh, if it would click for him...' [But] the different system we play is possible because he plays how he plays, because he is everywhere".
"Not a lot of times have I thought, 'That was a penalty, ' and then looked at it to find it was not the right decision. So far the gesture of the season".
A subdued Unai Emery said Arsenal needed to be better defensively, possibly the understatement of the weekend, though he did admit his side had been overrun in midfield.
"We spoke in the dressing room, it is another experience for us, but from bad experiences you learn".
Emery highlighted Maitland-Niles and Alex Iwobi for their positive displays, but said Arsenal lacked balance.
"The fans think we are in good shape and it would be insane if they didn't think we are not in a good moment, absolutely insane".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
