That’s Saka, and Odegaard, and there is a runner through on goal…
Arsenal in front, it’s Gabriel Martinelli.
Diogo Jota – oh, that’s come off the hand of Gabriel.
Was it in an unusual position?
Maybe the short distance the ball travelled…
Not the best defending by Gabriel, and the ball for Nunez!
Darwin Nunez seizes on a moment of indecision in the Arsenal defence, their first one, and he is there to finish. It’s a big moment for him, it’s a big moment for Liverpool.
This could be trouble for Liverpool, it’s three against three.
Odegaard arriving now to make it four,brilliant bit of skill by Martinelli…
And the dummy for Saka.
Well, Liverpool are appealing for offside but the flag hasn’t come, and Bukayo Saka, just before half-time…
Oh, Firmino, brilliant ball, Firmino’s shot…
Goal for Liverpool! Classic, worked their way through Arsenal,and Roberto Firmino just can’t stop scoring right now -he’s done it against Arsenal again. Roberto firmino keeps up that excellent scoring rate against the gunners this is sixth Premier League goal of the season.
Defending for their lives here, Liverpool. Well, they have kept them out, but now there’s appeals for a penalty. Which is given. It’s a soft one. Liverpool need Alisson again here, so often the saviour.
Not this time though. Saka spot-on from the spot for Arsenal. Super penalty, Alison no chance the rig comes off the Emirates once more what a match Arsenal three Liverpool two.
Jurgen Klopp talks after Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat at Arsenal
Disappointed yes very disappointed I think around all three goals we made decisive mistakes like the first goal of course definitely too early in our situation, it’s obviously not what you need to get a foot in the game. I understand it a little bit because it’s a situation where we we pass the ball forward lose it and have a chance to win it back yoga nearly blocks the ball if you can block the ball then. I think we go the other way they can’t block the ball ball first place through our lines and there we have to interrupt the game however. I don’t know exactly.
I have to look it back but um because the moment when Odegaard can is free and ball I think it was all the garden passable to Martina so this pass is not to defend anymore that’s just not possible really a bad start but start controlling the game play a really good game against a very aggressive full of confidence Arsenal side, but um we really showed that we are here for a reason Squad equalizer is a wonderful goal great play um an open game could go either way.
I think with advantages for us um more possession more finishes these kind of things um yeah and then we make a a bad decision before half time we’ve got a free kick and it’s a situation where ignore freaky. I’m completely guilty for that as an excuse for my side. I can say I was surprised that if we went up front of that okay what are we doing but then yeah if the boys are convinced then let’s score a goal but we didn’t we conceded one on the other end and that’s now of course not yeah like after the worst possible start now.
We had the worst possible end the first half going half time there we have additional problems um lujo we had to change already before obviously um something with the knee not good we will not we will have a scan and be no more. I have no idea about the extent but on top of that trend on the bed as well and with the ankle twist the ankle not good Trend never in seven years never went off if he could have played on so pain but too much pain slight swelling immediately.
So we left the skin but all the boys so we have to try to obviously cut off the two goals and and build on the good stuff but that means you have to play a football again and that’s what we didn’t do yes Arsenal came out again very aggressive man we man against hendo and and Thiago um but we’re going to flexible enough anymore in the front line so didn’t drop in the right moments didn’t know if I have spaces apart from the goal where we did that obviously particularly well then which caused The Equalizer.
And now it’s a really open game I think with again the slide advantages for us but then the the um the penalty happens and yeah what can I say now about that situation so he he thought immediately it’s a penalty which is interesting but with this decision Mr England had to look at it and thought as well as the penalties of how we know in life if two refs think the same then it’s the truth we have to live with um but if I see the situation back when if if there was contact and I’m not sure there was contact but there might have been soft contact of course but the player goes again on both feet and then down that’s an indication that something might have been made up a bit so but not for the Reps but they thought.
It’s a clear not a handball in the first half when Jota will put the ball on Gabrielle’s arm we cannot change that you know our situation is now obviously a really difficult one but in this in if then if it’s already difficult enough with injuries now on top of that but even if in a game like this these decisions goes go against you yeah it’s kind of typical but it doesn’t help and well now we’ve lost the game um with a lot of good moments again not to forget the team inform played against the team not informed pretty much and we we played some good stuff and could have had got a result here I think a draw would have been a deserved result but now we have to deal with that that’s why we got to be leaving yeah with this kind of circumstances are coming together at the moment.
