Why Arsenal failed to beat Liverpool – Arteta reacts to 1-1 draw


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has said his team “didn’t find the right quality moment in the final third” against Liverpool on Saturday.

The Gunners were held to a 1-1 draw at Anfield in the Premier League

Gabriel Magalhaes’ early header was cancelled out by a fine Mohamed Salah finish.

Both sides had chances to score again, but eventually settled for a share of the points.

Arteta, speaking to Sky Sports, said: “A big test and we absolutely came through it. The boys were incredible. One of the most intense, hectic games I have witnessed in 20 years in this league which says a lot.

“It was an unbelievable game of football with two teams that raised the bar to another level, both sides wanted to win and played as such. In the last 15-20 minutes our team really wanted to win but we didn’t find the right quality moment in the final third to achieve it.”
