Arteta reacts to Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Liverpool



 Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has revealed his tactical approach in their 3-1 victory over Liverpool on Sunday.

A Gabriel Magalhaes own goal cancelled out Bukayo Saka’s goal, but second-half goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard sealed the win for the Gunners.

Arteta, speaking to reporters after the game, said: “They were attacking open spaces and that is a bad thing to concede against them. They changed their shape and we had to bring a player inside.

“Basically the message was there were going to be difficult moments and we had to navigate through them.

“We were ruthless when we had a chance and it feels like a big win.”

On Liverpool, Arteta added: “At the moment they are probably the best team in Europe and the levels they have, they are an incredible team.

“We have come so far and now it is about doing it consistently. Liverpool have done it for six to seven years.”
