The Liverpool He took a breath of confidence and sharpened his weapons before the Arsenal, with a win (0-3) that predisposes them to measure themselves at Real Madrid next week in the Champions League.
A doublet of Diogo Jota, who acted as a revulsive from the bench, and a bit of Mohamed Salah, served so that the ‘reds’ arrive with the spirits by the clouds after an irregular season and lacking this type of joys and goals.
Three days away from facing Real Madrid in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Jürgen Klopp, in addition, gave all the necessary clues to the whites on how he will form on Wednesday.
The central pair is already defined. The youth squad Nathaniel Phillips and winter signing Kabak will be chosen. The sides will be for Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold, which will also be rested since it was not with the English team.
And to retaliate, Liverpool’s ’66’ served the assistance for the first goal of the game. In the middle Klopp has more options, but Thiago Alcántara and Fabinho are fixed. Your companion is more open. Can be Curtis Jones O Giorginio Wijnaldum. This Saturday it was veteran James Milner. And up they will be safe Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah and if Klopp attends to the moment of form he will opt for Diogo Jota and not for Roberto Firmino.
Although the team is far from good. Against Arsenal he was not. He was thick in attack, boring in many sequences of the game and the victory ended up falling on his side because the ‘gunners’ are unable to fight with the best and break up on their own.
The meeting was always in the gorge about to fall to the side of the ‘Reds’. Not because they garnered credit, but because they were at least trying something. Milner he had the clearest in the first half in a shot inside the area completely alone, but he did not refine, surely because that is not his war either.
Without being threatened at any time, the Liverpool he finished off all three points in the final stretch. A measured center of Alexander-Arnold Jota nodded him past Leno. For the Portuguese, who scored three goals in the window of international matches, it took three minutes from the moment he left the bench to see the door.
His seventh goal in this Premier eliminated the options of the Arsenal, which melted even more when Gabriel was soft in a cut with Salah, the Egyptian took the ball into the area and defined between Leno’s legs. To round off, Jota added more points to start Tuesday, finishing off a racket in the area and achieving his double.
