We were exceptional, says Klopp
Premier League champions Liverpool maintained their 100 per cent start to the season with a 3-1 win against Arsenal at Anfield on Monday leaving them level on nine points with pacesetters Everton and Leicester City.
The visitors took the lead through an Alexandre Lacazette strike but Liverpool were in front by the break thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson while substitute Diogo Jota made sure of the win with a late strike on his debut.
“(We were) dominant against a team in form and careful as hell that we did not get caught on the counter-attack,” said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp.
“Alisson had to make one save, they had two chances in behind but apart from that the football we played was exceptional tonight,” he added.
The Gunners, who won their first two games, have now gone 28 matches without a win away from home against the ‘Big Six’ opposition but manager Mikel Arteta saw signs of improvement.
“I’m really happy in the way the team competed and kept believing,” he said.
