    Because he hasn't got an instrument?

    Pretty sure that's why @Tobes called "him" a confused lesbian. Keep up mate, it's tiring having to track back for you all the time.

    Dunno where aboomerang was, but all of arsenals best chances were down to trent (down his side for the goal, playing lacazette online with his terrible positioning)

    Trent had an easy game overall because we still lack bite in midfield. Xhaka and Elneny aren't box to box players and lack any creativity. We were better with Cebalos in the 2nd half, but he's a deep lying creative player. For Aubameyang to thrive he needs an attacking mid/box to box player who can drive through the middle and open up space. We made it easy for Liverpool's defenders last night.

    You played through their defensive high line on a few occasions, especially after Cebalos came on. You should have taken at least one of those opportunities.

    You also should have mixed it up instead of playing out from the back on every occasion. They knew you were never going to go long, so could commit more bodies to the high press. You played through it on a handful of occasions, but not enough to justify that being your only tactic imo.

    Lacazette should have buried at least one of those chances. At 2-2 the game could have gone either way.

    I'm beginning to quite like us playing out from the back, it draws teams onto us and then we can pass through them and we're on the attack straight away. But yeah, don't make it so predictable every time.

    And having seen the Mane elbow again, he definitely should have been off. He has a little look at Tierney as he's running towards the ball and then launches his elbow straight into his mush. If that had been Xhaka on Salah, he would have walked 100%

    Chelsea got behind Liverpools line a lot too, didn't convert the goals they shoulda when they had the chance.

    Red card finished them and completely switched the game towards Liverpool.

    If Auba was in charge of some of the chances Lacazette had, might have been a different game.

    People getting in and behind Pool is gonna have to be something Klopp looks at

    We should definitely have made more of those chances, and like you say Aubameyang would have buried them. Laca usually brings it to the big games, so I'm a bit surprised he choked when he had those chances. But yeah Liverpool's high line is a definite angle for teams to exploit. Klopp reckons it's a risk worth taking, but there's an opening there for teams to exploit.

    Personally, I don’t get why you’re playing one of the best strikers in the league on the left hand side.

    He should be down the middle every week for me.
