  • Sat, 24 Aug 2019 20:30:52 +0000: David Luiz shirt-pull was ‘not enough’ for a penalty, says Unai Emery - Arsenal | The Guardian
    • Liverpool’s spot-kick was ‘very soft,’ says Arsenal coach
    • Jürgen Klopp lauds ‘incredible’ display from Mohamed Salah

    Unai Emery put his credibility on the line by defending David Luiz’s mistake in giving away a penalty during Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat at Anfield, admitting the defender’s shirt-pull on Mohamed Salah was the pivotal incident but arguing the referee had been harsh in pointing to the spot.

    This seemed a bizarre stance to adopt, since the foul had been visible to just about everyone in the ground and David Luiz even acknowledged his error with a signal of apology, though his manager seems to believe that a tug of an opponent’s shirt needs to be much more meaty before a penalty can be fairly awarded.

  • Sat, 24 Aug 2019 20:11:46 +0000: Anfield again proves the mirror that reflects Arsenal’s ugliest failings | Jonathan Wilson - Arsenal | The Guardian
    Unai Emery’s side put up a better fight than usual but their defensive defects and refusal to learn were gallingly familiar

    Another trip to Anfield, another heavy defeat for Arsenal. The best that can be said for them here is that, emphatic as the scoreline was, this was not as bad a display as many they have produced here in recent years. In their last seven visits Arsenal, unable to cope with Liverpool’s remorselessness, have conceded 25 goals. Anfield has been a brutal mirror and here again it reflected all their shortcomings.

    There was at least some stubbornness and resolve, exemplified by Lucas Torreira’s late goal, but the rebuilding of Arsenal has a way to go yet. There were moments in the first half, three of them, when it even seemed possible Arsenal might take the lead. But the problem was a setup so accepting of Liverpool’s superiority as to make it all but inevitable that they would succumb eventually.

  • Sat, 24 Aug 2019 18:45:04 +0000: Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Premier League – as it happened - Arsenal | The Guardian

    The losing side weren’t quite as “Arsenal” as they can sometimes be, but were still overwhelmed by the European champions at Anfield

    More from Klopp, who goes on to praise the incredible work rate of his players. “Our identity is intensity and that’s how we showed up today. I qwould have loved to have had a clean sheet today, but Arsenal is a quality side. They didn’t have that many chances. We were really in charge and won the game comfortably.”

    Jurgen Klopp speaks: “I saw a brilliant game from my side so early in the season,” he says to Sky. “It was outstanding. It was a performance full of power, full of energy, full of greed, full of passion. We were a bit surprised by the system they played, but we adapted well to the diamond with switching the sides and constant crosses.”

    Paul Wilson was on hand to see another Liverpool masterclass as Arsenal were put to the sword for the fourth time in consecutive visits to Anfield.

    Joel Matip speaks: “It was a tough game against a deep standing and a high quality team,” says the scorer of Liverpool’s first goal in an interview with Sky Sports. “If a team with these kind of players with such quality is standing on [the edge of] their box with eight players, it’s hard to break through.”

    On the subject of Arsenal’s pacy attackers, he says it was really hard to defend against them on the counter-attack, because they’re such good players.

    Didn’t expect to win, and in fairness it was two goals better than last season, but for a while it looked like it might be worse.

    It means we need a big response in the derby next week.

    Pepe’s moments aside, not much to like about that for me. We know there’s a gulf in class, you can’t be stupid at Anfield. Luiz was stupid twice.

    Emery’s game plan and subs questionable for me.

    Goal was a consolation against a team that knew they’d won, nothing more.

    Arsenal: 25 goals conceded in their last seven trips here, with this the fourth of those to be a defeat by three goals or more.

    As if suffering some grand karmic payback for 1989.

    Peep! Peep! Peeeeeeep! It’s all over at Anfield, where Liverpool have maintained their 100% record for this season with a win over Arsenal that could scarcely have been more emphatic until they took their foot off the gas. Joel Matip opened the scoring, before Mo Salah added two more. Lucas Torreira scored a late consolation for Arsenal, who were overwhelmed by a vastly superior team for long periods of this game.

    90+3 min: Free-kick for Arsenal, about 30 yards from the Liverpool goal, almost dead centre. David Luiz tries his luck, but it’s not his day. He sends the ball high over the bar, into a jeering Kop.

    90+1 min: Presumably they’re all exhausted, but I haven’t been hugely impressed by the manner in which Liverpool’s players have finished this game. There’s been a noticeably large and predictable drop in intensity, but they’ve let Arsenal get themselves back in the game by scoring one goal and then creating a scoring chance that went unconverted by Lacazette moments ago.

    87 min: Crikey! Ainsley Maitland-Niles floats a cross to the far post, where Lacazette chests it down unmarked. With a better first touch, he’d have had a clear shooting opportunity with plenty of goal to aim at. With the ball at the byline, he pulls it behind him and then appeals for a penalty for - I think - a possible handball by Trent Alexander-Arnold. The chaps at VAR HQ aren’t inclined to throw him a bone. That could have made for a very interesting final few minutes.

    86 min: Arsenal substitution: Matteo Guendouzi off, Henrikh Mkhitaryan on.

    From a corner, the ball is worked to Lucas Torreira in the Liverpool penalty area. He gets the ball stuck under his feet under pressure from Jordan Henderson, eventually digs it out and stabs a shot from 10 yards into the bottom right-hand corner.

    82 min: Salah cuts in from the right again, before playing the ball to Roberto Firmino with his back to goal in the Arsenal penalty area. As he tries to turn, Xhaka dispossesses him and the Brazilian goes to ground. His appeals for a penalty fall on deaf ears and Anthony Taylor waves play on.

    80 min: Arsenal attempt to salvage some pride, with Monreal lofting a ball towards Aubamayang in the penalty area. Liverpool clear. Arsenal substitution: Alexandre Lacazette on for Joe Willock. He takes a central position up front, with Nicolas Pepe to his right and Aubamayang to his left.

    77 min: Liverpool substitution: a beaming Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on, Sadio Mane off. And why wouldn’t the Ox be smiling? His team is 3-0 up and he signed a new extended deal during the week.

    75 min: Nicolas Pepe sends a left-footed cross to Aubamayang, who was ghosting in towards the far post. Milner heads the ball out for a corner. Nothing comes of it.

    74 min: On their past four visits to Anfield, Arsenal have lost 5-1, 4-0 and 3-1. They’ve been dreadful on at least two of those occasions, but are actually playing reasonably well today. Liverpool are just much, much better than them. I’ll be surprised if there aren’t a couple of more Liverpool goals here, as Arsenal’s players look absolutely shattered and dead on their feet.

    71 min: Jordan Henderson picks out Firmino with an excellent pass down the inside left. He curls a cross towards the far post, where Salah is waiting, but Arsenal clear their lines.

    70 min: Salah sprints into the Liverpool penalty area from the right with the ball at his feet again. Instead of shooting, he attempts to square the ball for Mane at the far post and his pass is cut out by Sokratis.

    70 min: Having come out for the second half, snarling and snapping like the hounds of hell as they went about Arsenal, Liverpool have calmed things down a notch.

    69 min: Firmino tries to pick out Mane with a cross into the Arsenal box. It’s intercepted and headed clear. Liverpool substitution: James Milner on for Gini Wijnaldum.

    67 min: Maitland-Niles and Pepe combine down the right, with the latter trying to pick out a Aubamayang with a cross. Adrian smothers the ball in a warm embrace.

    65 min: Through on goal with Matteo Guendouzi all over him like a cheap suit, Mo Salah is flagged for offside. If he’d stayed on he’d have either scored or won another penalty.

    64 min: Arsenal win a corner, then another after a Monreal header is put out by Alexander-Arnold. Nothing comes of it.

    63 min: Arsenal substitution: Dani Cabellos, who has barely had a touch of the ball, makes way for Lucas Torreira.

    62 min: Roberto Firmino tries a shot from the edge of the Arsenal penalty area, as Liverpool continue to overwhelm their opponents. Bernd Leno saves.

    61 min: Signed to shore up the Arsenal defence, David Luiz is not having one of his better days. Having given away the penalty that led to Liverpool’s second, he allowed Salah to take possession and turn him out on the touchline for the third.

    Salah scores his second. He picks up the ball on the right flank, beating Luiz and Monreal in the process. Cutting inside, he bears down on goal and with options to his left he slots the ball into the bottom left-hand corner. It’s a very composed finish.

    58 min: “You can see he’s a talent but this game is just passing him by,” adds Neville, talking about Dani Cebellos, who is doing nothing.

    56 min: Firmino tries a shot from the edge of the penalty area, but it’s blocked. Moments later, Andy Robertson sends a cross to the far post from the left flank. Mo Salah beats his man, but heads over the bar. Arsenal are getting spanked here. “This Liverpool team is just destroying them,” declares Gary Neville, who is on co-comms alongside Martin Tyler on Sky Sports.

    54 min: Sokratis goes to ground winded after throwing himself in front of a Trent Alexander-Arnold pile-driver. Referee Anthony Taylor graciously gives him a few seconds to catch his breath.

    52 min: Bernd Leno is forced to rush out of his penalty area and hack the bvall clear after Nicolas Pepe was dispossessed in midfield and Liverpool galloped upfield on the counter in a four v two. Arsenal could get absolutely mauled here.

    50 min: I’m a huge fan of David Luiz, but his reaction to being penalised for what was an obvious yank on Salah’s shirt was comical. He was caught, quite literally, red-handed with a fist full of his man’s scarlet shirt but still feigned innocence and was outraged at having a penalty awarded against him.

    Mo Salah doubles Liverpool’s lead, sending Bernd Leno the wrong way as he rifles the ball into the top left-hand corner. You won’t see a better penalty kick than that.

    David Luiz is penalised and booked for pulling on the shirt of Mo Salah in the Arsenal penalty area as the Egyptian tried to get on the end of a wonderful Roberto Firmino pass.

    46 min: Liverpool immediately go on the attack and Bernd Leno is forced into a smart save.

    46 min: Arsenal get the ball rolling for the second half, playing into the Kop end. There are no changes in personnel on either side.

    An email: “Genuine query from a suffering fan,” wrote Abhijato Sensarma, before Arsenal went behind. “Do you think Arsenal have a genuine chance of winning the EPL?” No, none whatsoever. Next!

    Peep! Liverpool go in at the break with a one-goal lead, the all important strike a Joel Matip header from a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner on 41 minutes. Arsenal have been dominated, but not without chances - the pick of them coming when Nicolas Pepe found himself in a one-on-one with Adrian, only to come up short with a feeble shot straight at the goalkeeper.

    45+2 min: Salah plays the ball to Mane in the Arsenal penalty area, continues his run and picks up the return pass. Under pressure from Guendouzi, he sends the ball wide from a tight angle.

    45 min: Replays of the goal show that as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s delivery was fizzing into the penalty area, Arsenal’s defenders were so worried about containing Virgil van Dijk, that they actually got in each other’s way. Grabbing the front of Dutchman’s shirt and refusing to let go, Sokratiss outstretched arm actually prevented Guendouzi from marking Matip, who jumped for a free header.

    42 min: Well, you can’t say that wasn’t coming. Liverpool’s full-backs have been given licence to roam and even though it was from a se-piece, it was one of their crosses that helped the home side opened the scoring. Matteo Guendozi was caught napping as Joel Matip leapt to get on the end of Alexander-Arnold’s delivery and send a bullet header past Bernd Leno.

    Liverpool lead. Trent Alexander-Corner sends the ball into the mixer from a corner and Joel Matip heads home.

    39 min: From a throw-in, Mo Salah rolls Granit Xhaka in the Liverpool penalty area before sending a low diagonal drive flashing inches wide of the far post.

    38 min: Andy Robertson drops a good delivery towards Firmino at the far post, but David Luiz intervenes to avert the danger.

    37 min: Liverpool free-kick about 35 yards from the Arsenal goal in a central position after a foul on Sadi Mane.

    34 min: Play resumes, with nobody getting sent off and the crowd none the wiser as to what particular incident was being checked. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner is headed clear. Within seconds, Nicolas Pepe has robbed the ball from Jordan Henderson and is bearing down on the Liverpool penalty area. He gets the better of Andy Robertson, the only defender between him and Adrian, before striking a weak shot straight at the goalkeeper. That was the chance of the game so far.

    33 min: Play is interrupted for a VAR intervention. I have no idea what is being checked, much like the players and the crowd. It’s a potential red card, apparently.

    32 min: Robertson crosses from the left, trying to pick out Mo Salah. He’s crowded off the ball, which breaks to Alexander-Arnold on the right. He pulls it back to Jordan Henderson, whose first time shot takes a deflection on its way over the bar.

    31 min: Pepe tries a shot from just outside the Liverpool penalty area, as Andy Robertson stands off him. He tries to curl the ball into the top corner, but it sails agonisingly wide. Good effort!

    30 min: Bernd Leno leaps to pluck another Trent Alexander-Arnold cross from out on the right flank from the sky.

    27 min: Arsenal enjoy some time on the ball, giving their already knackered midfielders a chance for a breather. They’re being run ragged by a dragging them from one side of the pitch to the other repeatedly, with the manner in which they’re constantly switching play.

    25 min: Granit Xhaka hoofs the ball long for Pepe to chase after another bout of sustained Liverpool pressure. He’s unable to get to it and Liverpool resume possession. Moments previously, Sadio Mane tried a shot from distance, only to see his effort sail into the stand behind the goal.

    22 min: Liverpool have three shots on the Arsenal goal in quick succession. None trouble Bernd Leno. On Sky, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher are discussing the freedom of the park Arsenal are giving to Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson, saying “it’s what Arsenal want”, so their front two can get tight on Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk. It seems a decidedly risky strategy to me, because it looks to be only a matter of time before Liverpool score.

    20 min: A woeful Dani Cabellos pass across his own penalty area from the corner flag drops to the feet of Sadio Mane. He shoots low and hard, Bernd Leno saves and Cabellos waves a hand in apology to his team-mates.

    17 min: Henderson switches play out to the left wing again during a sustained period of possession for Liverpool. Arsenal attack swiftly on the counter- however and Pepe tries his luck with a shot. Adrian saves his low drive.

    15 min: Having weathered an early storm, Arsenal have shown signs of improvement. They’re playing l;ong balls up the left and right channels for Pepe and Aubamayang to chase and the pair are finding plenty of space to work in, what with Liverpool’s full-backs getting left high up the pitch.

    11 min: Adrian gallops out of his penalty area to clear a through ball from Aubamayang to Pepe, who is being shepherded by Virgil van Dijk. He hacks the ball as far as Aubamayang, who tries to loft the ball into the recently vacated Liverpool goal. He doesn’t have the necessary accuracy and Liverpool’s goalkeeper gets away with his needless rush of blood to the head.

    10 min: Andy Robertson receives a pass from Henderson in acres of space out on the left flank. His cross into the penalty area is headed clear.

    8 min: Liverpool’s full-backs are getting the freedom of the Anfield flanks. Trent Alexander-Arnold gets a cross in, but his delivery is put out for a corner by David Luiz. From the ensuing corner, taken by young Trent, Gini Wijnaldum gets a shot off but it’s high over the bar.

    7 min: Nicolas Pepe canters down the right flank on a counter-attack, but is dispossessed as he looks up to survey his options. As far as I can tell, Dani Ceballos has been tasked as playing as a No 10 behind a front two of Aubamayang and Pepe.

    5 min: Arsenal are seriously under the cosh in these early stages, struggling to get the ball out of their own half under the intensity of Liverpool’s pressing. With Arsenal trying to keep the midfield area so narrow, Liverpool are switching play from wing to wing, where they’ve more space to operate.

    3 min: Liverpool win a free-kick, wide on left. The ball’s floated into the penalty area and looks to be falling for Virgil van Dijk. David Luiz gets a touch on it to avert the danger.

    2 min: Arsenal line up with a narrow midfield diamond and are immediately on the back foot. Liverpool switch play from right to left, where Andy Robertson gets on the ball. His low ball through the Arsenal penalty area only just evades the lunge of Roberto Firmino at the back post. Close!

    1 min: Liverpool kick off, playing into the Kop end in the first half at the request of Arsenal, who won the toss. Their players wear red shirts, shorts and socks. Arsenal are in navy, with luminous yellow trim.

    Not long now: Jordan Henderson and Granit Xhaka lead the teams out on to the Anfield sward on a sunny summer’s evening on Merseyside. Both sets of players line up for the last of the pre-match niceties and kick-off is just a few minutes away.

    Away days: We’ve had five away wins out of five fixtures played in the Premier League today, with Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Southampton, Leicester and West Ham all triumphing on the road. Can Arsenal make it six out of six? Recent history suggests not, but we’ll find out soon enough if they can end Liverpool’s 41-match unbeaten streak at home.

    Meanwhile over on Twitter: Arseblog – a man who knows far more about the Gunners than I do – reckons that Unai Emery may play a midfield diamond.

    4-Diamond-2 more likely than Ceballos being pushed into the front three, but you never know with Unai Emery.

    How will Arsenal line up? Only time will tell, as it’s a slightly perplexing selection by Unai Emery, who has picked three central midfielders (four if you include Dani Ceballos). My guess, which will almnost certainly be wrong, is that Granit Xhaka will play in the centre of midfield, with Joe Willock on the right and Matteo Guendouzi on the left. Up front, Dani Ceballos will play on the left of a front three, with Pierre Emerick-Aubamayang in the middle and Nicolas Pepe on the right. We’ll find out how completely wrong I am in just under 30 minutes.

    Fabinho and Jordan Henderson come back into Liverpool’s midfield, with James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain making way. Nicolas Pepe and Granit Xhaka start for Arsenal, with Alexandre Lacazette and Reiss Nelson dropping to the bench,

    Liverpool: Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Matip, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane.

    Subs: Milner, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Shaqiri, Origi, Kelleher.

    Early team news: Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka are all in contention to start for Arsenal, but Unai Emery said yesterday that he would not decide on his line-up until this morning. If, as expected, Xhaka and Pepe start, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson will probably make way.

    Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson remains sidelined with a calf injury, so Adrian will continue between the sticks. Dejan Lovren and Naby Keita are both injured, but would almost certainly not have started anyway.

    Arsenal travel to Anfield without a win against Liverpool to their name in the past eight meetings of the sides. In the corresponding fixture last season, Unai Emery’s side were the victims of a 5-1 shellacking, their third consecutive defeat at Anfield. If they can prevail today, it will be their first win at Liverpool’s ground in seven years. Kick-off is at 5.30pm (BST), but stay tuned in the meantime for team news and build-up.

  • Sat, 24 Aug 2019 18:30:31 +0000: Mohamed Salah turns on the style as lethal Liverpool see off Arsenal - Arsenal | The Guardian

    In the context of Arsenal’s lamentable record in this stadium this was actually an improved performance, whatever the scoreline might suggest. They were worn down in the end by a Liverpool side that started ponderously but eventually found their rhythm and confidence, with Mohamed Salah enjoying one of his most effective games for a while, though until David Luiz went into malfunction mode in the second half there was little to choose between the two teams at the top of the Premier League table.

    If Liverpool are now the only side with a 100% record, Arsenal did enough to suggest that once their new signings settle in they should be a force again this season. It is debatable whether a couple of expensive errors by David Luiz can be filed under “settling in”, for this was a display to justify all the doubts raised by those who questioned whether the notoriously fragile Gunners’ defence really needs such a loose cannon at its heart. While it would be harsh to state that David Luiz cost Arsenal this game, he certainly blighted their chances of making a comeback.

  • Fri, 23 Aug 2019 21:30:22 +0000: Unai Emery eyes chance for Arsenal to shine at their theatre of screams | Nick Ames - Arsenal | The Guardian
    Arsenal have had a torrid time at Anfield in recent seasons but Saturday’s match gives Emery and his side the chance to gauge their progress against a team they aim to emulate

    Anyone seeking to judge Arsenal on the basis of a performance at Anfield tends, these days, to come away with brow furrowed and head shaking sadly. The scene of their most famous hour has become a theatre of modern nightmares; one where they are eviscerated at will and where, of 22 goals conceded there in the past six years, 15 have come before the change of ends. If Saturday’s return is to be the start of something, it would be a good idea for Unai Emery’s team to actually get started.

    It is a fixture Arsenal fans have become accustomed to watching through their fingers. But it is the one their manager may scour for clues more closely than any other. Emery’s opacity can be frustrating but he has never hidden the thought that Liverpool, and specifically their progression from meandering nearly-men to European champions, are an obvious benchmark for Arsenal to follow.

The summer transfer action is beginning to come hard and fast for Arsenal as they now have begun to receive many offers for the want away Dutch striker Robin Van Persie who is out of contract with the gunner at the end of next season. The clubs star player has made it clear he will not be signing a new contract with the gunners and this has prompted all of Europe’s top clubs to begin a bidding war for the phenomenal striker.

Another player who could be set to leave the Emirates stadium is Carlos Vela who is now in the middle of discussions for a transfer to the Spanish side Real Sociedad who are thought to be lining up a £5.000.000 deal for the Mexican international. Vela has been on the sidelines for some time now and it is clear that his future lies elsewhere and away from London.

The capture of Lucas Podolski from Cologne a few weeks back was meant to signal the start of a new era at Arsenal as the club have been trophy less for the past five years. The German international was seen as the perfect partner for Robin Van Persie but with the Dutch striker certainly on his way out of the Emirates it is now more than likely that Podolski will be leading the line along with another new signing up from in the form of up and coming superstar Olivier Giroud.

Another player who could be leaving the London club this summer is Marouane Chamakh who has found himself out of the picture at Arsenal for the past twelve month and has only started a handful of games during this time. The Morroccan international is wanted by Fiorentina and Dutch champions Ajax and the striker is keen on a move to either of these sides in search of first team football.

Arsenal are also said to be in for the highly thought of Egyptian defender Islam Ramadan who plays for his homeland club Haras El Hodood with the twenty one year old thought to be an integral part of Wengers new defensive plans. Ramadan has also attracted a huge amount of interest from some of Europe’s leading clubs including Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.

Arsenal Vs Liverpool: Unai Emery got it right

Unai Emery switched up his tactics in Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday. Despite lots of criticism for his approach, he was actually spot on. Liverpool are better than Arsenal.
