EPL live scores, blog — Liverpool vs Arsenal

Partager

Salah and Sturridge scored in the second half to round off the riot and Wenger bemoaned his side's performance.

"Not physically, not technically, not mentally and we we were punished". Travelling fans turned on the Frenchman, with Wenger apologising for his role in the performance. But this was as bad as all of them.

REPORTER: Arsene, can you begin to explain what went wrong there?

WENGER: But last season I said that after 30 games.

The Reds however, will be entering their home ground on a high having made the Champions League by defeating Hoffenheim 6-3 on aggregate.

Alexis Sanchez started for Arsenal the first time this season at Liverpool but was substituted after 62 minutes.

WENGER: That is the kind of question I cannot answer after a game like that. The 4-0 scoreline is, unfortunately, kind to the Gunners. I believe in our first two games we looked quite good. "I felt we controlled the game everywhere, we were brilliant and worked so hard", he said.

"We closed the spaces and were brave where Arsenal wanted to play in short spaces, it was overall a really good peformance and well deserved. The performance was perfect and the result is the result of the performance", the German said. Not to become too emotional, we have to take some distance. Klopp explained before the match that he was not 'dropped' so much as 'rested'.

A move that raised eyebrows among observers and supporters of the club, Wenger cited Lacazette still assimilating to English football as why their record signing didn't start. "Everything you see reminds me of what has happened for the last 10 years".

Arsenal were only getting worse and Liverpool were outplaying them big time as they were able to score their fourth goal through Daniel Sturridge، who headed home a beautiful cross from Salah.

In all honesty Liverpool should be favourites to win today.
