Midfielder Martin Odegaard had an unbelievable miss in front of Liverpool’s open goal this morning.
Arteta talks about losing to Liverpool
Arsenal are in quite high form with 5 consecutive victories in the domestic league.
This is the reason why Liverpool did not dare to push the squad high and press the opponent like in the previous matches. At the end of the first half, both teams had two shots towards each other’s goal in a tug of war.
The turning point of the match should have come in the 51st minute when Thiago had an extremely careless pass.
The Spaniard does not seem to have observed Lacazette still at the bottom.
Very quickly, the French striker handled the ball and returned it to Martin Odegaard in a favorable position.
However, in this very comfortable position, the Norwegian player hit the goalkeeper Alisson’s hand again.
This Odegaard chance calculator has a success rate of up to 29%. Unfortunately, Mikel Arteta’s students missed the golden opportunity to take the lead.
Then just a few minutes later, from a shot from a tight angle, Diogo Jota punished Arsenal’s defence. The player who provided the assist in this situation was Thiago, who almost became a criminal early in the second half.
After that, Liverpool launched Salah and Firmino to enhance the quality of the attack.
And it was Firmino who “closed the box” of the match with a sensitive cushion.
