Liverpool’s coach Jurgen Klopp took Roy Keane to task after the reds defeated the Gunners 3-1 on Monday. Liverpool recovered from below to make it three wins at the beginning of the season. Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson, and Diogo Jota found themselves on the score sheet.
Alexandre Lacazette scored the first goal after a mistake was made by andy Robertson in the 18-yard box. Liverpool responded immediately with a rebound from Sadio Mane and Robertson increased the scoreline to 2-1 over the Gunners. New signing Diogo Jota then increased the scoreline to 3 as he scores his first goal for the club.
After beating Chelsea and Leeds this season, few people should have forgiven Klopp for been too happy during his interview after the match with Sky Sports. Though, former Man-U captain, Roy Keane claimed the premier league champions were sloppy during the first three games of the title defense.
Jurgen Klopp was listening to the analysis of Keane before his interview and was irritated by what he heard. He insisted that his team has done well in their performance according to him.
Jurgen Klopp said, Did Mr. Keane say it was a sloppy performance? Maybe he was talking about another game. It cannot be this game, sorry. There was nothing sloppy about this game. It was absolutely exceptional. From the first second, we were dominant against a team that is in form.
The football we played tonight was exceptional. There is nothing bad to say about this game. It was that opposite of sloppy. Klopp added when he said, we played a super game but we were 1-0 down how does that happen? “Imagine if we did not win it. We could have scored more goals, yes. of course, there is some risk with the high line, but that what we try.
At the end of the interview, Keane said, He is very sensitive isn’t he? Jesus.
Arsenal had the chance to win the game after getting the lead in the first half of the game. Lacazette also some chances away after he came face to face with Alisson Becker twice but couldn’t convert the chance to a goal.
