Klopp impressed by Emery's much improved Arsenal

04 Novembre 2018

Arsenal have won more points from losing positions, eight, than any other team in the Premier League this season and while they have not led at half-time in any of their league games, they have scored 19 goals after the break - more than any other side.

The ball then fell kindly to Mane to tap home and, although Mane was offside from the original Milner pass, he was onside in the second phase from Firmino's shot.

The first 10 Premier League fixtures this season have seen the Reds concede a measly four goals and keep six clean sheets, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City unable to score against the Merseysiders.

"I think a lot of it is confidence, every player needs confidence".

Jurgen Klopp disagreed with the decision to disallow Sadio Mane's goal for Liverpool against Arsenal on Saturday evening but said he can not complain about leaving the Emirates Stadium with a point in hand.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes Sadio Mane's first-half goal was wrongly ruled out for offside in his side's enthralling 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

" We are doing more combinations to do more to be stronger with the relationship between us".

Unlike recent performances where Arsenal have started slowly, Emery's players must be focused from the start and will need to put early pressure on the Liverpool defense, led by Dutch global and record transfer Virgil van Dijk, if they have hopes of snatching all three points from the Reds.

"There is only one thing I know, work".

Until this season, Arsenal have not had a player capable of sniffing out that kind of danger, arguably since Patrick Vieira left the club over a decade ago.

"In the second half, you saw how good we were then with a slightly-changed formation - in the counter-attacks especially".

Arsenal have now gone 14 games unbeaten in all competitions, taking significant strides under new manager Unai Emery.

"A point at Arsenal will always be an absolutely good result, so we take that and move on".

"We were not compact enough, simple as that", Klopp said. It was a good test for us. But the spirit is like we want. We worked very well for the 90 minutes and the two goals is the difference in the match.

"The progress takes time, a long time in football is very hard to demand". Last year, a few teams played really good seasons but there was no chance to catch City because, by October-November, the gap was already that big.
