Premier League: Will an injury-stricken Arsenal provide a challenge for Liverpool?

29 Agosto 2017, 04:50 | Cornelio Vivanco

And even that stalemate was fast-paced, frenetic and thoroughly entertaining.

The Reds are coming off with a win over TSG Hoffenheim in the Champions League, having booked their place in the group stages and are in red-hot form with 3 wins on the trot in all competitions.

"Mentally it was difficult".

"Our performance on the day was disastrous".

Glenn is ESPN FC's Liverpool correspondent.

Arsenal were not doing too much wrong at that point, but Gomez easily read Sánchez's intended pass to Héctor Bellerin in the Liverpool penalty area, and from then on it was the speed with which the home side advanced into the spaces Arsenal had left that impressed.

To add insult to injury, Liverpool are currently bidding for Monaco star Thomas Lemar, a player Wenger said was not for sale just last week. A 5-1 battering to Liverpool. But what we saw today was worse.

The likes of Salah and Mane were on fire last night, and yet Cech managed to save several of their shots. Mane repeatedly ran in behind the defence from the left, while Mohamed Salah was a threat down the right. Arsenal was overwhelmed by Liverpool's attackers. This weekend, Klopp will be hoping Liverpool play in a similar manner against that very opponent.

Arsenal's defeat, and the toothless manner of their surrender, will once again raise questions about Wenger's position, less than three months after the Frenchman signed a new two-year contract. If anything, the midfield trio has changed in their absence.

Salah scored Liverpool's third goal in the 57th minute and dished out an assist to Daniel Sturridge, who headed the ball for the team's fourth goal in the 77th minute, securing a second straight win for the club. Henderson isn't a natural defensive midfielder and Firmino isn't a natural forward.

Dejan Lovren believes Liverpool have the most dangerous front line in the Premier League.

New Zealand striker Chris Wood struck a debut equaliser in the second minute of added time for Burnley as they earned 1-1 draw with Tottenham. And if Wenger wanted to convince the wantaway Alexis Sánchez, who reportedly turned in a transfer request after the game, or Mesut Özil that Arsenal is where they want to play, Sunday's display didn't help any. They lost that day 6-0. "But we will try everything to improve in the next game and bounce back from the disappointment we are all feeling at the moment", Ozil wrote on Instagram. After all, nothing could be more offensive than that showing. "Our fitness levels have been brilliant, we worked hard in pre-season", continued the Captain.

There are plenty of owners going around in football that do not have a clue about the game whatsoever, and that is what the Arsenal supporters have to put up with.
