‘Liverpool Made Life Too Easy For Arsenal’- Jurgen Klopp Speaks After Draw


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his side made “life a bit too easy” for Arsenal to fight back for a hard-earned 1-1 draw in a thrilling encounter at Emirates Stadium.

Alexandre Lacazette’s late equaliser extended the Gunners’ unbeaten run to 13 games.

James Milner’s powerful strike just after the hour, drilled home after Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno’s clearance rebounded off Rob Holding, looked to have put unbeaten Liverpool on course for victory.

Lacazette, however, had other ideas and drew the Gunners level eight minutes from time with a superb finish on the turn after he had taken the ball away from Liverpool keeper Alisson.
“It was very intense, Arsenal are in a very good moment,” Klopp said.

“A point at Arsenal will always be a good result, so we take that and move on.”

The point puts Liverpool back on top of the Premier League but they will feel hard done by after a first-half strike from Sadio Mane was incorrectly ruled out for offside, while Virgil van Dijk hit the post with a header and forced a fine save from Leno after the break.

“I think it was a goal, it should have been a goal,” Klopp said.
“He runs to the ball because he doesn’t think he is offside and then the referee whistles.”
