Share This

Arsenal suffered their first loss of the season on Monday night. Mikel Arteta side had won their first two games with victories against Fulham and West Ham.

On Monday night, the Gunners travelled to Anfield stadium to face Premier League Champions, which ended in a 3-1 loss at the end of 90 minutes.

Arsenal took the lead when Alexander Lacazette pounced on a error from Andy Robertson.

Sadio Mane immediately level the scoreline with a tap in after Bernd Leno had saved Mohamed Salah shot which fell to the path of the Senegalese.

The Reds got the lead when Andy Robertson made amends for his error as he scored the second goal for Liverpool.

Speaking after the game, coach Arteta admitted that Liverpool were a better side.

"We were in the game for a big part of the game,” Arteta told BBC Sport. “The reality is they are superior to us in many aspects. You could see that in some phases.

"I am really happy in the way the team competed and kept believing. This is the standard we have to reach. We are on a different journey. They have been together five years; we have had a few months.”

The Reds who clinched the title with a 18 points gap between them and second placed Manchester City are yet to loose a game. Victories against Leeds United, Chelsea and Arsenal have since the Reds pick up nine points so far this season.

The coach added that the mistake his team made was to allow the Reds score the equaliser immediately after Lacazette goal.

"They scored too early [after Arsenal's goal], big mistake from us. I had a feeling we were going to have chances in the second half,” he said.

He also ruled that his players missed some chances in the game when Alisson stopped Lacazette three times in the game which the Gunners should have taken advantage.

According to Arteta: "We had probably the best chance of the game. You have to put them in the net when you have chances against them.

"We have a long way to go in many things."
