What a shock for the Gunners right before the international break. They went 1-0 down at Anfield 17 minutes into the game, a Roberto Firmino goal, and right before heading to the dressing room they saw Sadio Mane make it 2-0.
It was shocking [conceding the second goal] but our performance was absolutely disastrous. There are some reasons behind it but we have to analyse
Arsene Wenger told Sky Sports after the match, talking about the 2-0 deficit his team took with them to the dressing room at halftime.
An already bad situation turned even worse in the second part, with Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge adding their names to the score sheet, rounding up an emphatic 4-0 Liverpool triumph.
The result is a consequence of our performance. We were not good enough. We were beaten everywhere physically, in the end I believe we made it easier for them, and the mistakes gave them a cushion
the Arsenal manager said, avoiding going into details on what exactly led to his team’s shocking – as to its extent – defeat.
The players now go on their international break, but we do have to take the consequences of our performance today. If you find a manager who is happy with that performance today, I wish you good luck. The emotions are negative, but it’s not the right moment to talk about that
the Frenchman also said, not in the mood to analyse the game.
