Klopp puts pressure on Guardiola
goalkeeper Becker saves Liverpool from the “donkey”
Jurgen Klopp has achieved a lot at Liverpool. It has always been a club icon. However, this season the Reds are far behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, but then they embark on a stunning winning streak. They can also develop this with In-Form Gunners in London.
Liverpool FC returned to the competition for the English championship. German coach Jurgen Klopp’s side won 2-0 (0-0) at the young club Arsenal in the Emirates and can continue to win the Premier League title on their own. After 29 games, the Reds are just one point behind leaders Manchester City. The defending champions have lost their feathers in recent weeks and have lost 10 points against Liverpool since the start of the year.
“We are now just one point behind City, but nothing changes,” Klopp said on Sky, looking forward to the likely decisive match against Pep Guardiola’s side on April 10. Citi then everyone else. One point behind him is definitely better by 14 points. ”
With the 2-0 win, the Reds extended their winning streak in the Premier League to nine matches. It was a tough match as the hosts failed to take advantage of their many chances and the Beatles responded in style. After a goalless first half, Arsenal dominated it with high pressure, a great match unfolded in the first stages of the second 45 minutes.
The visiting Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker was distinguished by two incredible shots against Alexandre Lacazette and former Norwegian Martin Odegaard after a foul by former Munich player Thiago Alcantara. “It can happen,” Klopp said of the midfielder’s mistake. “Thiago knows it. He must be incredibly relaxed. Alison must have saved his ass.”
Arsenal is still running
Border balls paved the way for angry minutes from Klopp’s team. Two goals in just eight minutes set the path to extraterrestrial success. First, the Portuguese Diogo Jota met with the preparatory work of former Munich player Thiago Alcantara (54th place) and a little later the former Roberto Firmino polished a cross from Andrew Robertson (62).
Arsenal had nothing to oppose the dual package. The Londoners had one more chance and suffered their first defeat after five consecutive league victories. At the beginning of the year they lost 2-1 to Manchester City.
With 51 points remaining, Arsenal, with national goalkeeper Bernd Leno on the bench once again, remains fourth and thus also in first place in qualifying for the Champions League. With Manchester United, West Ham, Tottenham and Wolverhampton Wanderers, there are four other clubs currently lurking behind Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
