Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp saw his side secure a 2-0 win over Arsenal on Wednesday night and he raved about his two full-backs – Trent Alexander Arnold and Andy Robertson – after the game.
The Reds weren’t really at their best at the Emirates. Arsenal were arguably the better side in the first half and they should’ve even taken the lead after the break when Thiago’s poor pass gave Martin Odegaard a glorious chance to open the scoring.
Liverpool survived and Diogo Jota broke the deadlock soon after. Substitute Roberto Firmino doubled that lead just eight minutes later and that was enough to seal the game.
Klopp was a happy man after the game last night and he heaped praise on his backline, especially his two full-backs.
The German said in his press conference after the game, as per LiverpoolFC.com: “We have to agree on defence first because otherwise, you are like any team, you win or you lose, you win or you lose.
“Today, we win 2-0 but we had games we won 1-0 and we wouldn’t have won these games if we are not defensively spot on.
“The last line, in general, was incredible today.
“Ali saved us again, but what the two full-backs (Alexander-Arnold and Robertson) did was absolutely insane.”
