Arsenal Vs Liverpool: David Luiz shirt pull to Mohamed Salah makes Liverpool gain a penalty to make 2-0 in the second half of the game.
Arsenal are facing Liverpool in the third game-week of the Premier League with Liverpool dominating over Arsenal to secure three points in the current game-week.
Most of the blame of Arsenal’s defeat tonight can be credited to David Luiz, as he made a silly mistake against Liverpool to concede a penalty, and from there the Gunners had no coming back.
The Gunners conceded the goal in the first half of the game after Joel Matip scored one to gain a lead against Arsenal. The first half ended in a 1-0 but the second half was a disaster for Liverpool.
It started with Liverpool making a blistering attack in the second half of the game, and it was Salah who made a glorious turn in front of the eyes of David Luiz. To this, the Brazilian defender had no response and he ended up pulling Salah’s jersey, which landed Arsenal in trouble.
The foul in the 18-yard-box was spotted by the referee and penalized the gunner for illegally denying Salah to score. The Egyptian International stood up to take the spot-kick or the redemption for the foul made on him.
Salah prepared himself to take the kick, as he made a short run before hitting the ball into the top left corner with a powerful force to make it 2-0 for Liverpool. Indeed Bernd Leno had no escape from this wonderful kick.
With this, Luiz must be regretting to make a disaster inside his box. After this goal, Arsenal realistically lost the match, and further Unai Emery’s side conceded another goal to lose the game. Although, Lucas Torriera scored a consolation goal, in the end, to make Arsenal lose the match with some dignity.
And for Salah’s next goal, he absolutely destroyed Luiz on the turn, dropping his shoulder and leaving Luiz on his heels. He then went onto cut inside and dish out a silky finish to put the game to bed for Liverpool.
