The Reds are just utterly relentless aren’t they. Jürgen Klopp’s winning machine keeps pressing on with a dramatic intensity. This week we saw Arsenal fall victim to the irrepressible Reds. Liverpool battered Arsenal and they didn’t even have Thiago playing. Who knows just how dominant they’ll be with the Spaniard in the side?
Liverpool keep marching on
This Monday night we saw Arsenal visit Anfield with some suggesting that there could be an upset on the cards.
These suggestions were dismissed emphatically. Sure, the Gunners stole the lead early on after a daft mistake from Andy Robertson allowed Alex Lacazette to scuff a shot over Alisson Becker.
The hosts clapped back quickly, Sadio Mane tapping home after Mo Salah turned Kieran Tierney inside out.
Trent Alexander-Arnold showed his class once again when he whipped one into the far post for Andy Robbo to atone for his error with a goal, lifting the ball over Bernd Leno.
Diogo Jota came on for the final 10 minutes and bagged a goal on his Premier League debut for Liverpool, truth be told he could have had a hat-trick.
Liverpool beat Arsenal without Thiago
So, get this: Liverpool beat Arsenal and they didn’t even have Thiago.
You know? The Spanish superstar that the Reds brought in to win these games when teams sit back and defend.
We won the game without him. We had 66% of possession and didn’t even have Thiago there to utilise this dominance of the ball.
Given the imperious nature of the victory, the manner in which the Reds strangled their opposition, it is scary to think just what could happen with Thiago in that midfield.
We saw against Chelsea that the midfielder will be dictating the play, helping it tick over and picking out those unpredictable passes.
When he’s back in the lineup we could see this Liverpool side become, somehow, even more unstoppable. We are salivating at the prospect.
