Liverpool vs Arsenal: Real reason Ozil will not play in EPL clash

Liverpool vs Arsenal: Real reason Ozil will not play in EPL clash

Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane played as well here as they did in any game last season and between them they got their team's five goals.

Fifth-placed Arsenal are 16 points off the pace but the gulf here was even wider as they collapsed under the first sign of pressure despite having taken an 11th-minute lead.

That result made it three defeats in four league games - but Guardiola is adamant there is no cause for concern.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, the 55-year-old says: "This Liverpool side is totally different to the side we drew with". Liverpool players didn't hang their heads at all after that goal.

Josh is a writer who specialises in football and wrestling.

Can Liverpool ensure Anfield remains Arsenal's house of horrors? Lovren's hopeless punt from the back is cut out and Iwobi picks up possession. Iwobi played a quick one-two with Aaron Ramsey and headed for the Liverpool area, this time crossing instead of shooting for Ainsley Maitland-Niles to supply a neat finish at the far post.




The ball fell to Firmino, who had a simple tap in after the Bernd Leno was taken out of the game with the bouncing ball.

NBC will broadcast Liverpool versus Arsenal.

But while his first had an element of good fortune about it, his second was pure spice.

The Reds were running riot, forcing Arsenal to commit errors at the back and it was starting to become embarrassing. Arsenal cleared a corner but had so many men back in their own box the ball ran to an unchallenged Robertson on halfway. If that was a statement of intent from Liverpool another arrived nearly immediately, Firmino popping up with his second after Sadio Mané dispossessed Lucas Torreira in midfield. The players are expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation again.

Maitland-Niles, who gave left-back Andy Robertson a hard time early on, capitalised on the space left by the attacking left-back to convert Iwobi's low cross at the far post.

However, the lead lasted just three minutes as Firmino profited from some calamitous Arsenal defending to level and then left Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos on the floor to score his second goal in three minutes.
