Arsenal played boldly and fiercely from the opening whistle of the match, putting pressure on Liverpool in the hope of achieving the goal of progression.
Arsenal’s midfield put in a near-perfect performance in the first half, helping the hosts gain an advantage over the visitors.
On the other hand, Liverpool seemed deflated and unable to get the ball out under the pressure of the ‘Guerz’ elements, who made a serious mistake by not finishing things off in the first half, when the opportunity presented itself.
In the first half, Liverpool tried to attack from the flanks without success, but in the second half the ‘Reds’ performance improved a lot after finding an effective way to hit Arsenal’s defenses from deep instead of from the flanks.
Klopp had said in the pre-match press conference that his team’s remaining games this season are final, referring to the need to win them to keep putting pressure on Manchester City in hopes of hijacking the league title.
Liverpool dealt with this in the second half, after showing their speed and flexibility by switching to a different approach in attack, the most important thing is to win.
Diogo Jota opened the scoring 10 minutes into the second half, after receiving a deep pass from midfield by Thiago Alcántara, which he sent into the net from a difficult position.
At 8 minutes, Roberto Firmino added the second goal for the visitors after the ball came in front of the goal to put it in the net with ease.
This goal, and Liverpool’s attack on Arsenal in the preceding seconds, revealed the state of confusion and exhaustion in which the “Ganners” defense appeared after nearly an hour of play, perhaps due to its dependence on a form of game, unlike the away team. .
