Liverpool defeated 3: 1 Arsenal. Lacazette’s goal was answered by Mane and Robertson in ten minutes. Diogo Jota scored his debut goal in a Merseyside shirt.
In the central match of the 3rd round of the English Premier League, the reigning champion Liverpool hosted Arsenal in London and, despite the missed goal, was able to win convincingly.
The teams of Jürgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta met the match at Anfield with two wins in the championship and one victory in each match. The Londoners seemed passive, but they opened the score in the 25th minute. Ainsley Maitland-Niles did not pass well from the left wing to the opponent’s penalty area. Still, the ball landed on Andrew Robertson’s feet and turned to Alexander Lacazette, who received a gift and left Alisson face to face – 0: 1.
It took Klopp’s team just a few minutes to rectify the situation with Mane’s goal, and the score became – 1: 1.
Liverpool scored a second soon after. Trent Alexander-Arnold found Robertson in the penalty area from the right-wing of the attack in time, who did not need to be taken from close range – 2: 1.
The final score was recorded at the end of the match by Diogo Jota, who came on as a substitute. The Portuguese striker, after several missed chances, crowned Liverpool’s attack with a goal after David Luiz failed to repel the ball with his head – 3: 1.
“We played great. I cannot say anything bad about this game. Liverpool have created many dangerous moments, but my dream is not really to end every moment with a goal. We won, and it was deserved. Could we have scored more? Yes, of course. Constantly at a high level, “We were playing, and we prevented Arsenal from carrying out the plan. It was just amazing,” Klopp said after the game.
