Lacazette and Nelson d’Arsenal make Liverpool pay for defensive fouls | Soccer


There will be no 100 point gloss for champions. Arsenal produced a moving display of deep rearguard defense, lifted by two slapstick moments from Liverpool’s bottom line. It was enough to inflict a third league defeat on the team of Jürgen Klopp and to give a most unexpected turn after another piece of defensive fragility left the red and white shirts a goal after 20 minutes, and resembling again to a porous unit.The three goals in the first half of this Arsenal 2-1 victory were due to defensive errors triggered by energetic and well-trained forward pressure. The fact that the two most decisive came from Virgil van Dijk and Alisson was both a surprise and a tribute to the sustained defensive concentration of Mikel Arteta’s team, who will greatly appreciate this demonstration of resilience.
