Liverpool Star Slams Strikers after Arsenal Game

Liverpool Star Slams Strikers after Arsenal Game

While no one inside the ground was celebrating, Gunners boss Unai Emery could at least spend the rest of his birthday reflecting on a promising performance from his team.

The decision to disallow a Sadio Mane goal for offside was questionable, while Virgil van Dijk also hit a post.

However, Liverpool also had plenty of chances in a thrilling first half that somehow lacked only goals.

Following the losses to Manchester City and Chelsea to start the season, Emery's team badly needed a result to prove that they are making strides towards challenging their main rivals and they delivered the right kind of statement at the Emirates.

After last week's win over Cardiff City that took Liverpool top, before City beat Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night, Klopp stated that the number of points amassed was more important than league positions at this stage of the season.

When it came, in the 83rd minute through Alexandre Lacazette's curling strike, it was a moment that owed as much to the belief of the fans as the drive of the players.

"Against Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool - these are three teams in front of us (in the table) and you can see how three different matches we played", said Emery.

Arsenal began the game on top but it was Liverpool that had the ball in the back of the net on 18 minutes.

However, Brathwaite said there was no shame in being labelled underdogs, especially against a strong side home-side. West Indies are also the only team to have won the ICC World T20 title twice.

In contrast to their last visit to the Emirates when they conceded three times in five minutes almost a year ago, Liverpool needed to show their new-found defensive resolve as a confident Arsenal started and finished the brighter.

"But when we played, we were really risky".

50 Premier League goals is no easy feat, especially for a midfielder, and even more so for a midfielder of Milner's type, which is not necessarily to join in the attacking phases of play.

"We've just got to keep ticking away with the points and you never know what can happen further on in the season".

I am more focused on the games, things like contracts I leave with my agent.

He took his goal very well, with a great deal of composure, and his teammates' performance ensured that incredibly, he still has never lost a Premier League game in which he has scored.

Liverpool went closer still to breaking the deadlock soon after when Firmino prodded Trent Alexander-Arnold's pass over Leno and against the post.
