Arsenal – Liverpool 0-3 (0-0)
It was a long chance at the Emirates on Saturday night. But then it really caught fire.
After just four minutes on the pitch, Diogo Jota sent Liverpool into the lead. Trent-Alexander Arnold hit a fantastic post that found the forehead of the Portuguese.
From a short distance, he made no mistake, and sent Liverpool into a deserved lead. Just five minutes later, Bernd Leno again had to pick a new ball out of the net.
– Very, very important. We had to keep going as we finished. Two straight wins and clean sheets. Today came another victory and another clean sheet, Jota says to TV 2 after the match.
– Arsenal are extras. He’s slick as an eel, Salah. It’s so clever, and it’s so rude of Mohamed Salah, exclaimed TV2’s Kasper Wikestad as the Premier League’s top scorer went on to make it 2-0 for Liverpool.
Jota was not finished. Just over ten minutes before the end, Liverpool rolled up nicely. The ball eventually ended up with Jota, who increased to 3-0, and removed all doubt about where the points should end up.
Liverpool got a golden opportunity to get a dream start to the settlement. Sadio Mané came on, Roberto Firmino had to leave the fray. Unfortunately for the away team, the pass was inaccurate.
Eternal James Milner was to stand for the match’s first chance. Firmino got the ball lucky with him, and the ball eventually fell to Milner who tried his luck from 20 meters. The finish went a few meters to the side for goal.
The opening quarter went smoothly, but the away team managed to create pressure on Arsenal, who had enough to defend.
After 34 minutes, Milner were awarded a huge chance. Trent-Alexander Arnold came down to the dead line and found Milner all alone 45 degrees out. From 16 meters, the Englishman should only steer it away in the far corner, but the ball ended up aside for goal.
Despite Liverpool having the ball 66 percent of the time, the first half ended goalless. Arsenal had only one finish during the first half. Something they have not had since 2015.
The second round continued as the first. Liverpool with a lot of ball, and a deep-seated Arsenal team that struggled to get the ball.
Only after the hour played should the home team note their first finish on goal. Cedric, who came in for an injured Kieran Tierney just before the break, tested Alisson in the Liverpool cage, but the Brazilian last chance had no problem saving the shot.
The night of the substitute
After 60 minutes, Diego Jota came on for Andy Robertson. Only four minutes later he stabbed Liverpool in the lead.
Trent Alexander Arnold hit an excellent post and found Jota inside the box. The Portuguese, who scored three goals in the national team break, had no problems hitting the lead goal.
Just five minutes later, the Premier League’s top scorer made it 2-0. Mohamed Salah stole the ball from Gabriel and could easily put the ball under the legs of Leno in the Arsenal cage.
The 22-year-old has shown good form lately, but the recent national team captain failed to do much – even though TV 2’s viewers named him the best player on the field, who must be able to put on the cloak for patriotism.
The Norwegian played the entire match for Arsenal.
