Liverpool gets covid everywhere they goo


JaguarCultural

Xhakha save arsenal.


Ladorb

Saka really showing he's a world class talent this game. Get your dirty hands off our boy Klopp!


Outrageous_Spot_8725

Where's that rat that was saying Liverpool weren't gonna be afraid of a team that lost to a championship side. Couldn't even hit the side of a fucking barn tonight you guys are shite without mane and Salah. Can't wait for the Emirates return leg. False positives won't save you this time


Only-Ride2582

gunners shouldn’t trashtalk mate, you lost even more unbelievable tiers than this close one with Liverpool :)


kwhicks

Should’ve played last week. We were shit against Nottingham


Cowdude179

Klopp can't beat red card 10 men teams


Quab775

Klopp with Salah is like barca and Messi


Brisingamen1

Salah leaves Liverpool, back they go fighting for a top 6 spot. Mediocrity


Hyrcania42

Strange, a top tier team loses top tier players and becomes a second tier team.


Hundstrid

Its like its somehow related!


unitedrobbie

For all the 'stubborn defensive performance' and this and that, Liverpool win this if Minamino doesn't miss an absolute sitter. It's an inexcusable miss. I suppose that goes to show how much an early red card leaves you in the lurch though and you need luck in those situations


seamowylie

Technically yes you need luck in all close games, but you'd expect Liverpool to play well enough to beat a 10 man Arsenal without luck being involved.


unitedrobbie

Aye you would. Liverpool were awful


Epikwolv3

The same can be said for Arsenal too. Arsenal win if Saka doesn’t take such a heavy touch and scores his big chance. In the end all that matters is the game ended in a tie


unitedrobbie

Yeah, football matches are full of moments like this. I just thought it was interesting to think about how differently some would evaluate the defensive performance if he doesn't miss embarrassingly in the dying embers even though the defensive performance would obviously be no different. People obviously get defensive over their teams though and seem to have taken it as criticism


R_sensei

this match made feel this team is no longer wenger's same old arsenal, which you know would bottle


NoiLLion

My exact thoughts. A relief to see the lads battle and fight for the whole game. Never saw that in a post 2004 Arsenal until now.


liquid_carbon

Can we stop saying low block, fucking hell.


CooCooClocksClan

You don’t like low blocks I take it.


liquid_carbon

It's not even that, I just don't like it being called a low block, just have an irrational hatred for it.


CooCooClocksClan

Eh… Oh well. Don’t think you’ll escape it.


Hellbucket

Too bad about the dive from Jota when his chest looked for contact with Xhakas flying leg. Otherwise it could’ve been an even match. /s


Adgej123

Klopp busting out the lateral flows and sharpies for the weekend. Nothing without Salah


Magnus250

Jesus, i didn’t think that Arsenal fans were such obnoxious wakers before reading this comment section.


skelmar

They're the same wet wipes who think everything is some big conspiracy against them

And rightfully so


KingofthePepe

Ben white is a fucking titan.


Brisingamen1

Liverpool are in for a very rough month if they can't generate hardly any chances against a 10 man team without Mane and Salah.


wrboyce

We were shit against 10 man Chelsea with a stronger team out.


bcbrown19

It's like people who don't understand football can't understand how this is possible. A man advantage does fuck all if the remaining players all sit in the 18 yard box the rest of the game.


MirageUlt

Didn’t city beat you 5-0 or something when you went down to 10 men?


CackleberryOmelettes

Yeah no. There's plenty of teams in the Prem who will put 11 players behind the ball and you have to figure out a way to beat them. And 10 behind the ball is easier to beat than 11.


bloodfromastone

Obvious response is something about Salah being missing but seen that pattern of play plenty of times from Liverpool with him in the team. Shut down the the creativity from the full backs, defend in a 5 man low block and close the half spaces. They don’t have much creativity coming from the middle and they don’t manipulate the ball patiently enough. Tactically a limited side who never really change the basic shape of the team - difficult to play against, but predictable if you get your setup correct.


Hyrcania42

It would be great if we had a creative midfielder like Naby Kei...oh right


NoiLLion

From what I've seen if Trent and Robertson don't get up the pitch and attack the midfield at Liverpool doesn't have anything in them beyond basic basic passing. Certainly little creativity. I get that they can press and be physical. It's worked so far but I can't see them doing well for the next 3 week's. And actually their latest run of games have been very poor with no sign of improvement. No Salah is a huge loss. Mane hasn't had a good season but still a loss too.


Foxyboi14

Yes which is important from Arsenal when down to 10 men but in doing so they also gave up all hopes of attacking which I legitimately couldn’t tell if that was the plan all along. Second leg should be more revealing tactically.


unitedrobbie

The hardest thing about playing Liverpool is by far the intensity, they're so dominant in the duals that you just can't get out and the pressure keeps coming and coming. They don't usually tear teams apart they just batter them


Foxyboi14

Martinelli was dominating his side at least


2pawshakur

Arteta is a football terrorist


NemoDropEmOff

My 🐐 🔥🔥🔥


2pawshakur

Taking the mantle from Osama! What a man!


Kazuma97

Imagine delaying the game and still drawing against 10-men ahahahhaah


HumanTorch23

How did we end up with the only shot on target?! Edit: missed the one in injury time, oops. Still, 1 apiece is madness away from home after a red that early.


NemoDropEmOff

HAHAHAHHAAH


Tlomz27

This was one of the most excitingly boring matches Ive witnessed in a good while


tgyyyy123

peak dycheball


wintergoose

Martinelli makes it very obvious he wants to give his shirt to the young girl and the steward gives it to a different boy nowhere near where Martinelli was pointing. Poor form.


WidzGG

Thank God I wasn't the only one who saw that feelsbadman


wintergoose

I know right. It'd be nice if Arsenal could find her and give her something in the future.


WidzGG

Welp prepare the petition!


NemoDropEmOff

Karen Klopp can’t break down a low block without the individual quality of Salah and Mane. Brilliant performance from the lads. Amazing shift from everyone. Gonna be a great game at the Emirates


we_outcheaa

Terrible game


Stravven

Great for the memes though.


NemoDropEmOff

For Lolerpool yea


minhos0106

Had the game on during class and that was more entertaining than this game


Deifdave

Liverpool were so bad, excellent performance from all 10 players there


MrLeshen

You've got to give credit to a team like Arsenal, who have a squad of shit to manage to drag out the world's most boring match with 10 men against some of Liverpools best. The fact both teams only got one shot on target is a memory they'd sooner forget.


we_outcheaa

Liverpools best..? Bro did you see that midfield and front 3


Stravven

Compare that to Arsenal. Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Tomiyasu, Aubameyang, Pepe, Elneny, Partey all not there due to either covid, injury or AFCON, and Arsenal played most of the game with just 1 senior midfielder, Lokonga. Compared to that Liverpool can't complain.


CackleberryOmelettes

*Lokonga, who is just returning from COVID and is in the middle of his first season in the Prem.


MrLeshen

Rowe Smith would of made the game much more interesting. He's really come through for you guys this season.


Stravven

At the moment he's not in the starting eleven, it's Martinelli, Saka and Odegaard behind Lacazette.


MrLeshen

I'd say that Jota, Robertson and Van Dijk are some of Liverpools best. So, yes some of Liverpools best.


Radu_jr

fabinho henderson?


ChibzyDaze

Away fans were amazing, completely took over


penubly

Nice to see some grit from this Arsenal team


Scotsman95

Xhaka man of the match?


gonshairlinee

Lol half our team missing and one man down and you STILL couldn’t score get fkd


never_pm_me_ok

This game is going in the Arsenal trophy cabinet. Kept Liverpool scoreless while down to 10 men the same season that Chelsea did.


lBUNY

get fuked like 4-0 last November?


gonshairlinee

Hah got me there :) it’s alright have fun struggling to score with no salah soon 👍


Armani_151

Calm down m8 we didn't exactly play perfect today going down to 10 men, it's a good result for us given the circumstances but let's not get ahead of ourselves


gonshairlinee

Bro ik Liverpool are a better side but this is probably the best result we’ll have against them for a while. Let me banter in peace ;)


Armani_151

Ayy do what u do


DhruvMP

park the bus


Herbacio

Are you excepting Arsenal to go galloping ahead...just to be rolled on by Liverpool cavalry regiment ? The truth of the game is, one man down for more than half time, and playing at Anfield, Arsenal managed to get a draw. If they did it by parking the bus or a whole fuckin' plane it really doesn't matter For an attack for the likes of Liverpool ending a game with 0 goals scored isn't that common, and much less on this conditions.


DhruvMP

not really we do it quite often


rossitheking

Cheaters with yer ‘false positives’


DhruvMP

if we cheat why would klopp even say that. he has no incentive unless it was the truth


rossitheking

Why ye being investigated so? No smoke without fire


gonshairlinee

Tf you expect us to do with 10 men? Go all out attack? Maybe you guys should’ve faked some more positives LOL GET FKD


DhruvMP

thats what im saying. u asked how ur one man down and didnt score. idiot


obsterwankenobster

Go get some sun. It’s a match, which you didn’t even play in. No need to act like that


DhruvMP

what? no correlation


Adgej123

Couldn't hit a bus tonight lad


DhruvMP

long covid


Truffles413

If this is what life without Mane or Salah looks like, things are grim.


kwhicks

Man that was a fun match to watch. We had a couple chances to sneak a goal. Ben white MOTM for me. Liverpool fans, WTF? Can jota and firmino not play together? They looked like shit. Minamino was lively. I give our players credit for busting their asses. Almost snagged a goal too. Hope the second leg both teams are fit and it’s a banger


parkersr1

No post game thread so guess the luls are here still

NemoDropEmOff

“UCL winner and World Cup Winner Varane better than White” 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣


Claytonbigsbys

I don’t get this statement. Varane is better than White. Is there a joke I’m missing?


ztevey

Do you watch football?


Claytonbigsbys

Yes and in fact I watch multiple leagues outside of the EPL. That’s how I know Varane is better than Ben White


ztevey

Are you a Sp*rs fan?


Claytonbigsbys

No. I just know the starting CB for France is better than a player that can’t get above Maguire


Outrageous_Fill3231

Such a dumb take I don’t even know where to begin so I’ll just let it slide lmao


Claytonbigsbys

Because you don’t have an argument.


adw00t

Ice bath, strong mead and goose feather bed for the lads - Sunday beckons.


Imbalanced_

In highsight Xhaka saved us, Jota would score probably and we wouldn't.


lviatorem

Someone has to take the hate, and it seems Xhaka is fueled by that now.


Buttlather

Minamino self esteem reset


rholding95

Salah's demands just went 10m up


L34hhhh

Renew Salah’s contract and give him what he wants. The team is completely toothless in attack without him.


llllmaverickllll

Xhaka 5D chess. Took it for the team to keep the 0-0


Quab775

Liverpool are basically counterattacking team without their front 3


pedootz

Liverpool are fucked.


NemoDropEmOff

They’re ass without Salah


pedootz

"I'm not afraid anymore. Didja hear that? I'm not afraid anymore!"


Foden4BallonDor

Media is so fucking biased, "muted reaction from arsenal fans"??!?!? Cant still say anything to dispell the anfield atmosphere myth


bloodfromastone

He literally said Liverpool fans hahahahaha


Foden4BallonDor

Shhhhhhhh im pissed


bloodfromastone

Why do you have such a stick up your butt about Anfield? Have you been? I have a few times and it’s pretty good, but doesn’t touch Goodson when it’s rocking. The worst atmosphere hands down I’ve ever been to in a stadium is the Etihad, closely followed by the Emirates.


Foden4BallonDor

Yes, its awful, eitihad has a shite atmoshere, no complaints and ive been going city games since i was 10 (20 years ago), but the myth about anfield needs to stop, ive heard better stmosphere from the tourists at stretford end


bloodfromastone

Definitely not true. I’ve been to a few matches there and they were all good atmospheres. CL semi against Roma was electric, one of the best atmospheres I’ve ever experienced. The atmospheres still don’t touch smaller grounds or more traditional ones, as I mentioned Goodison, but Anfield definitely has a good atmosphere.


Foden4BallonDor

You're wrong, but as you're a member of the cult i didnt expect anything else


bloodfromastone

Lol what cult. I love football. Loads of Liverpool fans are pricks but I happen to live there. Much prefer Goodson.


PocketFullOfRondos

Better get that money out for Salah hahaha


NemoDropEmOff

HE WONT RENEW😂😂😂


Adgej123

Salah = Pool


Tundra_Inhabitant

Liverpool did the impossible. They made Ben White look worth 50m


chy23190

That would imply he had a bad game today. 😉


Stravven

Ben White has been good all season. Compare his signing to the other centrebacks big money was spent on, Varane and Konate. White has so far clearly been the better signing.


buscemis_smile

Oh, look. Someone watched his second arsenal match after august.


deathramps-

Xhaka: Nice lads we done it


mtojay

liverpool without their afcon players is a different team. incredible how toothless they are going forward. they are not getting 3 points on the weekend like this.

GET FUCKED LIVERPOOL

Great result for arsenal


Waylaand

We had more shots on target smh unlucky we didn't win


Make_duelling_legal

ben white has been absolute class


Synikey

Arsenal will be allot happier about this. Awful match.


FrodoFraggins99

Holy shit what a fucking result


Viremia

Very good defending from Arsenal. Impotent attack from Liverpool. I hope the next leg is better.


rdldr

Gabi is absolutely SHATTERED. Fuck, didn't need this with the NLD


Evered_Avenue

Not the first team to thwart us with a low block. They'll need to come forward in the second leg so will be a different game. We've looked dangerous here toward the end. Neco has been fire. Arsenal have been defensively solid and Saka is excellent. Hopefully a better game next week.


2pawshakur

Absolutely pathetic fucking performance. Fine the entire team 2 weeks wages


Kriegdavid

so good from arsenal. what a fucking performance


Stravven

How the hell did Liverpool not have a shot on target?


2pawshakur

Without Salah & Mane, we’re worse than Brighton at finishing whatever chances we can muster


FridaysMan

We weren't good, but it can't be understated how well Arsenal were defending. Ramsdale was class except for two dodgy moments near the end. Gabriel and White were both in exactly the right positions consistently.


cynicalreason

no plan B


my_aed_is_shit

1 shot on target all game my fucking goodness lmao


Dylusive_x

And not from the team with 11 men on the pitch. Insane

Stravven

Why? The incompetent team was Liverpool today, and they weren't exactly rewarded. Failing to win despite being a man up since the 24th minute, and worse than that, failing to get a shot on target.

Against a decimated Arsenal 11, then 10

After all that shit-talking, you managed a draw. Man, act like you've been here before.

You were a man up at home lol

We were one man down for over a half sit the fuck down

Lmao I’d say you managed a draw

Still no shot on target after rage booting it after whistle lol


RedBaron1902

Ramsdale comes off his line way too much for my liking
