One of the main virtues that characterized Liverpool in its run for the championship last season was its ability to come back from behind, when for the most part it would have done so in the final minutes of the game and left its rival stunned and disappointed. So in 2020/21, due to the need to reinvent itself, the English champions showed that they can make much quicker revolutions and with 1: 3 over Arsenal remained perfect alongside Leicester and city rivals Everton.
So let’s start with the game numbers:
* How fast was Liverpool’s comeback? Only 147 seconds separated Alexander and Cassette’s goal from Sadio Mane’s equalizer.
* Mana has scored in four of his five home games for Liverpool against Arsenal.
* Andy Robertson has scored or cooked in seven of the last eight Premier League games he has played (two goals, five assists).
* Diego Giota is the 13th player to score in his Premier League debut in a Liverpool uniform and the first to do so against Arsenal since Sadio Mane in 2016/17.
LaCassette is the first player to score for Arsenal in each of its three opening rounds since Olivia Giroud in 2013/14.
It could be said that Liverpool provided a not-so-bad display at all and attacked Arsenal’s hair non-stop, but former star and current commentator Roy Keane was not really impressed and called her performance “sloppy” in a post-match interview with Jürgen Klopp. The manager did not remain obligated and cracked a nimble and nervous monologue in which he attacked, among other things, the Irishman.
“Sloppy performance? Did I hear a sloppy performance? Did he watch this game? Maybe he watched another game. It was an outstanding performance, nothing was sloppy in it. We were dominant from the start against a team in great shape. We had to be careful and most of their attacks were “Offside. They were just waiting for a ball to be deflected,” Klopp declared. Cain was quick to correct himself and say he only talked about small parts of the game and then joked: “Today’s managers are a little sensitive.”
“Muhammad Salah was exceptional, I loved Robertson’s goal that combined the two defenders,” Klopp added, noting Juta, who scored in his Premier League debut: “He came off the bench and played naturally. He gave only 20 percent of his ability. “And it will take him time, but he scored a big goal. He will not forget him and neither will I.”
And what did Juta himself have to say? “Klopp told me to keep pressing, to be happy with the ball, to play good football and to press without the ball,” said the Portuguese. “It’s an amazing feeling, I wish I was conquering against a full Anfield, but I’m very pleased to secure the win. I’m going to do my best to help the team, the first goal is the hardest but I got it and now I want more.”
