So Arsenal fans, what are we supposed to make of this? The Gunners reacted to our somewhat slow and shaky start to the season by getting worse and losing today’s away match at Liverpool by a hefty 4-0 scoreline that in no way flattered the home team.
We failed to score once again and barring the odd half chance never really looked like doing so. We defended badly once again and could have conceded more than the four goals that we did. And just for good measure our often admired midfield had no control or direction and completed an all round team effort that I can only describe as awful.
For a few minutes the game looked balanced but it did not take long for Liverpool to start exerting the dominance that we would see throughout the 90 minutes. They were ahead after 17 minutes when another ball given away by Xhaka led to a chance that Firmino headed home without too much trouble from our defenders and a few minutes before the break the lead was doubled with a good goal from Mane.
Any hopes of a second half revival soon disappeared and when Salah pounced on yet another defensive error to go clear ob goal and beat Cech to add a third it was just a matter of how many they would beat us by. Four was the answer after Sturridge added an easy fourth and we now head into the international break in an absolutely shocking state.
What now for Arsenal?
