Arsenal defender David Luiz has revealed why Liverpool defeated their team 3-1 in the Premier League match on Saturday at Anfield.
Luiz admitted that the Gunners lost the match against Jurgen Klopp’s men because a better team defeated them.
According to him, if Arsenal had scored first, it would have been another game, and he added that the second goal (penalty) they conceived killed the game.
Mohamed Salah was the hero of Liverpool in the second half, scoring two goals after Joel Matip’s first game in the first half.
Luiz was quoted by the official Arsenal website saying that after the game: “Yes, we were defeated by a better team, but sometimes I think we created many opportunities to score.”
“It’s never easy to play here, and yes, Liverpool is fantastic. But I think if we scored first, it would have been another game. We had a chance for that. I think the second goal, the penalty kick, killed the game. After that, it was harder.
“What we take is the spirit until the end, we were trying to play until the end, and we scored a goal, but it could have been a different game today.”
Luiz now hopes to lead Arsenal to victory when he faces Tottenham Hotspur in his next Premier League game.
