Liverpool v Arsenal EFL 1st Leg

Post by brothernero » Thu Jan 13, 2022 8:11 pm

Arsenal with yet another red card. Granit Xhaka (sp) with what must be his 5th or 6th red card for Arsenal for a professional foul.

It’s incredible how Xhaka is still employed by Arsenal.

He didn't know he was behind him. Stupid. Commentary said last man. It wasn't. Apart from GBH I'd given a yellow.

Anyway, great stadium, great atmosphere but AFCON tells ...

Liverpool’s front six without Salah and Mane is a big bucket of meh.

The three utilitarian grinders in midfield that Klippity has no clue how to upgrade on and a front three that would struggle to get in our side.

Commentator just said Liverpool have been working with neuroscientists to improve their set pieces this season.

Must have had a week off when the team came down to London :coolas:

Looking at the respective front lines, Arsenal have the better CF.

It feels like these two are playing to see who loses to Chelsea in the final.

Lacazette is getting snidier by the week but I'd have him join us in a heartbeat he's a very good centre forward

Looks like Liverpool are missing Salah falling over in the penalty area.

This Liverpool team looks so toothless without Mane and especially Salah.

Klopp and Artera. - both utterly detestable.

Are Liverpool being investigated for postponing a match against Arsenal due to COVID when e wide cw suggests only 1 player tested positive.

Klopps claiming a lot of false negatives when there’s a 1/1000 chance per test.

Of course, there will be no punishment.

likewise.

It's also easy to see why Klopp likes Bowen. He'd start as their CF with Mane and Salah either side if he ever went there.

Liverpool and Klopp are utterly contemptible.

Arteta is just plain weird with his 'intensity'.

Just turned this on. 1 shot on goal between them? Sounds like a thriller.

Spurs must be rubbing their hands together at this. Arsenal will have nearly half their starting 11 missing at this rate.

Oh I’m sure they’ll find a way to mess it up. Draw will suit us on Sunday.

I'm glad Arsenal have held on from a neutral point of view to be fair. Sets up the second leg nicely.
