first_imgAdvertisement Comment Danny Murphy mocks Arsenal after Liverpool defeat at Anfield Mohamed Salah scored twice as Liverpool comfortably beat Arsenal at Anfield last weekend (Picture: Getty)Arsenal will ‘need a telescope to see Liverpool’ by the end of the season such is the gap that exists between the two sides, according to Danny Murphy.Unai Emery’s new-look team travelled to Anfield last Saturday hoping to extend their 100% start to the season at a venue which has become a deeply unhappy hunting ground in recent years.Despite the presence of David Luiz and record signing Nicolas Pepe making his full debut, Arsenal were undone by familiar defensive failings and erratic finishing.Liverpool took a deserved lead five minutes before half-time when Joel Matip powered home Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner and Mohamed Salah made the game safe with two goals in the space of nine second-half minutes.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Jurgen Klopp press conferenceTo view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 video Play VideoLoaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%PlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 4:51FullscreenLiverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Jurgen Klopp press conferencehttps://metro.co.uk/video/liverpool-3-1-arsenal-jurgen-klopp-press-conference-1992222/This is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Liverpool didn’t even get into proper gear.‘For parts in that first-half it was so easy for Liverpool. It was too easy to get into the final third because of Arsenal’s tactics and Unai Emery has to hold his hands up for that.‘Alright, Arsenal had a tight four and it was hard [to break down] but you can’t play against a top team and let them get so high up the pitch so easily in wide areas, especially with the full-backs they’ve got.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
