Arsenal v Liverpool: 5 things we learned

Alexis Sanchez Arsenal

Having gone 1-0 up but wasted a number of chances to potentially put the game beyond the Gunners in the first half, when Jurgen Klopp's side did score a second goal it was followed immediately by a insane five-minute spell in which they somehow went from 2-0 ahead to 3-2 down.

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 aftermath of Friday's game, Arsene Wenger admitted that his side had been "frozen" in the first half.

Fowler says Klopp's players must show more mental resilience.

"We are on our way and we have to keep the team together and improve", he said.

Firmino scored 11 times in 35 games in the Premier League last season to help Liverpool FC secure a fourth-placed finish and a Champions League spot.




However, Arsenal were able to come back in the second half through a five-minute blitz as goals from Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil put the hosts 3-2 in front. If you look at what happened, Arsenal were all over the place, they were outplayed and looked scared to death of Liverpool's pace and movement.

"But then we've settled down again, got our breath back and we've bounced back".

Failing that, Klopp should dip into the transfer market once again to finally solve a problem that has cost Liverpool so many points this season.

The Gunners fullbacks for the night - Hector Bellerin and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were often caught in two minds about their positioning as Arsenal hit the trifecta of shambolic defending - poor marking, lacklustre pressing in their own defensive third, and lazy clearances. "It is important for us to get a good result". The captain was replaced by James Milner who, like his manager, believes Liverpool's squad is young enough to improve.

The Brazil worldwide has been utilised at the top of the Liverpool team under Jurgen Klopp this season. I thought we did control the game but we opened the door and Arsenal are a real threat. We have got to become more boring.
