Paul Tomkins, Andrew Beasley, Daniel Rhodes, Chris Rowland and other TTT regulars will give their thoughts for 24 hours after the game, and we’ll have all the post-match stats too.
It’s incredible to think that, when playing Arsenal on the day that Man United faced Watford, a +7 swing in goal difference in the Reds’ favour (vs Red Devils) wasn’t that big a deal; it was the +5 swing over beaten West Ham. As with Mikel Arteta here, David Moyes going back in his box for a bit never hurts. (Albeit they’re still having a good season.)
Arteta shook Liverpool and Anfield out of their slightly nervous stupor, by trying to fight with Jürgen Klopp. Big mistake.
From that point on it was an onslaught, as Arsenal’s deep possession was cut to pieces by the Reds’ pressing, and in return, the Gunners couldn’t lay a glove on the red tidal wave.
And this was a Liverpool squad missing almost a dozen players. Everyone who stood in stepped up.
Gordon, Beck, Morton and Bradley sound like they could be the best solicitors on Merseyside. (Of course, as teenagers they’re still several years too young for that.) In the end, Tyler Morton made his league debut as a late sub, with the score at 4-0. It really was that easy.
