Arsenal can't blame injuries for Liverpool demolition, says Bernd Leno

May JohnsonDec 31, 2018

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri said he wanted "to kill" his striker Aboubakar Kamara, whom he accused of disrespecting the club by insisting on taking a penalty against the Italian's orders in their 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town. Arsenal was totally outlasted by the offensive powers of Liverpool. They've got such momentum behind them now that it looks like it's going to be very hard for anyone to stop them.

Manchester City, meanwhile, rattled out seven wins and a draw from the eight matches that followed in their "Centurions" campaign after they lost to Liverpool on January 14.

"They should have said to Xhaka "take him out of the game and stick with him"". It was a fantastic performance.

With his three goals past the Gunners, Firmino became the highest-scoring Brazilian in Premier League history with 43 - two ahead of Philippe Coutinho. With their front three in fine form, Klopp got the flawless collective performance to instil a bit of fear into Pep Guardiola's men. Would they wilt under the pressure or would this just fire them up more?

However Wolves came out a different team after the break and goals from Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa helped them secure three points at Wembley and put a dent in Tottenham's title chances, with their Outright market now at [32.0].

Can they eradicate stupid defensive and goalkeeping mistakes? I've been told it's the best they've had since the late 1970s, which is just incredible when you think of the team Liverpool had back then, and it's just the control in games they have.

Virgil van Dijk's authority was such that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang barely touched the ball.

Mane got in on the act just past the half-hour mark, emphatically slamming home after a squared pass from Salah.

After Salah was tackled, an attempted clearance from Stephan Lichtsteiner hit teammate Shkodran Mustafi and ricocheted into the path of Firmino, who tapped in without looking at the ball.

There's a belief, not only in Liverpool, but in the opposition that they can't beat this side, or at least it's going to be really, really tough.

If you go through Liverpool's results a year ago, you see the times they lost at Swansea, they drew at Burnley, and you wondered at the start of this season if Liverpool are capable of winning those games. It's a nice lead but we know how easily the Premier League can change. Did you think the party started already?

As for Chelsea, they managed to retain their position and went on to lift the trophy in both seasons.

With a crunch clash against Liverpool coming up at the Etihad Stadium next Thursday, Pep Guardiola's men can ill afford to drop more points as they travel to St Mary's on Sunday.

However, much has been made of Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino´s ability to extract the most from a stretched squad and Spurs finally looked like a side jaded by competing on four fronts in the final stages.
