All of the recent problems that have dogged Arsenal were on show again today during the Premier League away clash with Liverpool. We still cannot beat the big teams, even though some good luck and some lax finishing from the home team gave us a great chance.
To be fair to Arsene Wenger and the players, our squad was once again ravaged by injury problems and we had right back at the centre of defence and no options other than Flamini and Chamberlain in central midfield. But they both played poorly and the same can be said of almosy everyone in an Arsenal shirt. Maybe Giroud, Cazorla and Szczesny can hold their heads up.
We couldn’t even manage our usual trick of keeping the ball and were dominated almost throughout the game. We started slowly and never got into the first half and were seriously jammy to go in level at the break, but after taking the lead with a good goal early in the second half, Arsenal failed to capitalise and never threatened Liverpool on the break.
Even when they were reduced to 10 men late on, we sat back and let them attack and they got what they deserved.
