Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp noted that his team ” have to learn” after the current champions hopes of setting a new points record ended with a defeat at Arsenal. This still means that Man City still holds the record for total points tally of 100.
Liverpool will now look forward to receiving the EPL trophy on Wednesday at Anfield after the game against Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Liverpool needed to win their remaining matches to beat City’s point record and they looked on course when Sadio Mane put them in front 20 minutes into the first half from Andrew Robertson cross.
But then two blunders were made, first by Virgil Van Dijk’s dreadful back pass which Alexander Lacazette took advantage of by equalising coupled with Allison’s poor clearance, which Reiss Nelson scored to put Arsenal in front.
The second half saw Liverpool dominate possession but could not breakdown an organized defence set up by Arsenal.
Though there were chances for Liverpool to score but inform Arsenal goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez put up a fine save from Mohamed Salah’s low shot to ensure Arsenal grab all three points and head into the FA Cup semi-final against Man City with a morale booster.
Liverpool will next week play against Chelsea at Anfield, venue of where they are to lift the Premier League trophy while Arsenal play against Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.
