Liverpool defender Joel Matip gave his opinions on Arsenal, following his side’s 3-1 dismantling of the London club.
“It was a tough game, they played some good counter attacks, but a lot of time we were quite good.”
“If a team with these types of players and this quality is standing on their own box with eight players. I think that’s hard for every team, you need some time to get some spaces.
“They were so quick. With this pace, you cannot defend every situation, but there were a lot of moments where we did it okay. Of course we had to be patient, if you give a team like this so much space it will be really difficult.”
Matip’s comments come after his Liverpool side not only won 3-1, but controlled long periods of the game. Matip scoring the opener and Mohammed Salah grabbing himself a brace, to round off the scoring.
Regardless of the result and performance however, Arsenal fans may not take too kindly to Joel Matip calling-out their defensive style of play.
