Liverpool reminded whoever cares to listen that they’re still Premier League champions at Arsenal on Saturday night.
You’d be pardoned for feeling that Jürgen Klopp’s men were unshackled, knowing that City’s win at Leicester City implied they couldn’t retain their crown.
Also, Liverpool made the trip to Arsenal on a terrible form that had seen genuine inquiries raised about their odds of qualifying for the Champions League.
Eventually, Jürgen Klopp’s substitutes furnished the final detail, with Diogo Jota coming from the bench to shoot a header past Bernd Leno’s range.
It was a dangerous finish; there’s not even a shadow of a doubt. However, the goal could never have been conceivable without the crossing virtuoso of Trent Alexander-Arnold. He sent in the ball to Jota.
Besides, with Arsenal’s sorry evening coming full circle in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang jogging back to the substitutes bench, genuine inquiries were raised about if Mikel Arteta’s is suitable for the job at Arsenal.
Do you believe he’s fit to lead the team to greatness?
