Liverpool Tactician and Boss came out on Monday to say that he has been blown away by the standards Liverpool have set at the start of their Premier League title defense after coming from behind to beat Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield.
It was noted that Goals from Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota just made the Red re-established themselves over the Gunners, who had won their opening two league games of the season.
Although Chelsea , Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and now Arsenal have all lost one of the matches the opening three weeks of the new campaign with Liverpool have taken maximum points to lay down an early marker that they remain the team to beat in the Premier League this season.
Quoting the Liverpool Boss saying “It’s really early in the season and with this performance it is absolutely ‘wow’,”
“From the first second, (it was) dominant against a team in form. We had to be careful like hell of the counter-attacks.
“The football we played was absolutely exceptional. About this game tonight, there is nothing bad to say.”
He continued to say that the outcome of the match could have been very different when compared to other season. It was noted that Mane escaped a yellow card for an elbow on Kieran Tierney after about three minutes.
Although football analyst are saying that Arsenal followed the game plan that had brought them two victories over Liverpool in recent months but still find it difficult to overturn Liverpool.
It was also established that when they met at the back end of last season’s Premier League when Jurgen Klopp’s men had already won the league or the Community Shield in August, Liverpool were far sharper in pulling the Gunners out of position at that time but with these new season it is a different new season.
Football scout where only able to say that the only time Arsenal did manage to pierce the Liverpool press before half-time, they opened the scoring completely against the run of play.
