Liverpool’s victory and performance against Arsenal invite a question: Are they the best team of the second half of the year, this one after the World Cup? Their numbers in the Premier League, the most competitive tournament in the major leagues. His 20 games, of which he won 17 games, tied three and still has not lost. It takes nine points to Tottenham Hotspur, who lost 3-1 at Wembley to Wolverhampton, and ten to Manchester City, which this Sunday visits Southampton at the close of its 2018.
Klopp has built a bomb-proof Liverpool. Another season would have collapsed when Maitland-Niles overtook Arsenal taking advantage of a great Iwobi cross in the 11′. This time, far from sinking, they put the direct march towards the rival goal and came back from the match with two goals from Firmino in 90 seconds.
The third goal would come from Sané’s boots within half an hour of the match and the 4-1, Salah’s work in the first half addition, was too harsh a punishment for Emery’s, who had started the match well, pressing up. The goal, this time, came from a penalty after a fall of Sokratis on Salah.
Liverpool took their foot off the accelerator after the break. Klopp, in fact, began to accumulate midfielders to manage the rent. He had time, though, to round off the ‘little hand’ at 65′. Firmino, after a penalty too rigorous, culminated his hat-trick from 11 meters. Just prize for the ‘MVP’ of the match and for a Liverpool that adds 54 points of 60 possible.
The win is the perfect way to say goodbye to the year for Liverpool, are very strong and more concentrated, able to return to reach the final of the Champions League and be champions of the Premier for the first time since the new format was installed.
