Should Arsenal work on Jurgen Klopp’s observations? Maybe not…
By Sylvester Kwentua
The Liverpool game is drawing near, and everybody seems to be gearing up for the clash of the Titans. However, according to a report by football.London, Jurgen Klopp, who spoke to Sky sports recently, revealed to Arsenal, what they needed to do to come out victorious on Saturday evening. Exactly what he feels Brentford did to his team recently.
“They [Brentford] deserved their three goals for the way they played. We obviously couldn’t deal with them properly, with those long balls today, for different reasons. We should have scored more goals.” Klopp said.
Well, Arsenal could take a clue from what the Reds boss said, in order to stand a chance of going back to the Emirates with the 3 points, but on Saturday, something tells me Klopp would have rectified that fault.
Jurgen Klopp is a world class manager and surely knows his job! If he has noticed a fault in his team, he won’t waste time in fixing it. So, Arsenal may be disappointed if they wished to go the long balls route.
Secondly, maybe the German said that to distort his next opponent’s plans. He says his team was beaten by long balls, and he sure expects the next team to start preparing to play that way, no?
Besides, playing the long ball tactics may hinder the creativity of the players. We have players who like to make things happen singlehandedly, and these tactics may limit ourselves.
So what should Arsenal do? It’s simple; we play our natural game.
Arsenal are not known for playing long balls regardless. We play it short! In some cases, everybody can play it long sometimes, but mostly we play it beautifully. Playing to our strengths against Klopp’s team may just be enough to take home all the points. What do we think?
We are Arsenal and proud.
