Matip on why Arsenal are difficult to play against 0

Posted on August 28, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal were unable to overcome the challenge of European champions Liverpool this past weekend, losing 3-1 to Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield. It was a pretty comprehensive win for the Reds, but there were certainly points in which the visitors looked like they had the potential to cause Liverpool some real damage. It didn’t quite work out that way, though, with one of the reasons for that being Joel Matip.

After seemingly solidifying himself as van Dijk’s right hand man at the back for the first team, Matip was able to score one of the three goals that led to Arsenal slipping to a defeat. After the fact, Matip spoke to and actually spoke out about why Unai Emery’s men were difficult to play against.

The Anfield defeat – perspective needed 0

As I’m sure you’re all painfully aware, Arsenal were thoroughly beaten by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday. The stats of the game were heavily in favour of the home side and they go some way in providing the reasons for the final score (3-1). They had more possession, more shots both on and off target, and the ball spent most of the 90 minutes in the third of the pitch which the Gunners were defending. But the most damning piece of information is the fact that this was now the fourth consecutive defeat away to Liverpool; ever since the 3-3 draw back in January 2016, Arsenal have been unable to get a single point there.

Arsenal outclassed by Liverpool 0

Arsenal went into their game against Liverpool last night knowing that they were facing an uphill battle to get anything out of it. The European champions have made a perfect start to the campaign, and they’ve done so with pretty flawless ease. In the end, the Gunners were indeed outclassed by the better team as the Reds ran out 3-1 winners at Anfield.

Throughout the first half hour of the game it looked as if Arsenal could have more of a chance than people gave them credit for, with Nicolas Pepe having a lot of joy against the team that were heavily linked with signing him. After Matip gave the hosts the lead in the 41st minute, though, it was clear to see that the momentum had turned in a big way.

Aubameyang thinks Arsenal can match Liverpool 0

Sitting down with Sky Sports, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang talked about his expectations from the Saturday’s match against Liverpool and how things will change for them now that the club have signed Nicolas Pepe for a record amount of 79 million euros.

It is no surprise that there are great expectations from the striking trio: Aubameyang himself, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe. Aubameyang and Lacazette had a highly successful season last year even without the newest addition to their team. The two of them scored 50 times between themselves, the former 31 and the latter 19, while Pepe, who played at Lille last season, scored 23 goals.

Emery assesses the situation ahead of Arsenal’s match against Liverpool 0

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he will not let their last year’s result against Liverpool get to him and the team.

The two clubs last met in December 2018. Although Ainsley Maitland-Niles provided Arsenal with an initial lead during the eleventh minute of the game, that goal was followed by two of Firmino’s, one of Mane’s, Salah’s penalty goal and finally the completion of Firmino’s hat-trick, which resulted in Arsenal’s devastating 5-1 defeat.

Emery thinks that each season is different and that looking at and comparing this one to that one, two, three or more years ago is not the right thing to do, but rather to be and play at this moment.

Arsenal face an uphill challenge this weekend, and even that may be putting it lightly. Even the most optimistic of Gunners fans will admit that it’s going to be tricky for them to beat Liverpool, who were able to win their first two games of the brand new Premier League season. Of course, Arsenal have also been able to do that, so in those terms you’re probably wondering why people are so scared of them.

Emery looking forward to the Anfield trip 0

With two victories behind him and his team, one against Newcastle and one against Burnley this past Saturday, Unai Emery is excited to put his squad to the test at Anfield on 24 August.

After signing five new players in the most recent transfer window – David Luiz, Nicolas Pépé, Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba and Kieran Tierney – and brining Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid, the Gunners’ boss is looking forward to measuring up to the reigning Champions League holders. After finishing fifth in the last season’s Premiere League table with 21 wins and 70 point altogether, Emery will endeavor to reduce the difference in points between his team and Manchester City and Liverpool, who scored 98 and 97 points, respectively.

Big test coming up for Arsenal 0

Arsenal were able to secure their second consecutive Premier League win of the season this weekend, as they edged past Burnley to move onto six points for the campaign. The game wasn’t exactly a slam dunk and the Clarets caused Unai Emery’s men plenty of problems, but in the end, they got the job done. Above all else, the fact that they were able to overcome adversity like that is the biggest step forward of them all.

The next ‘old’ Liverpool? 0

At this moment in time, you could certainly make the argument that Liverpool Football Club are one of the top two or three best clubs in world football. They seem to have finally found a formula that works for them, with many taking the time to praise Jurgen Klopp as a result of that. Of course, he isn’t the only factor behind their success, but he certainly went a long way towards fixing one of their biggest issues within the squad: defensive frailties.

A look at Arsenal’s final eight PL games – Part 2 0

Wolves (A)

Assuming Wolves aren’t in the latter stages of the Europa League at this point, this game could be dangerous. The last time Arsenal went to Molineux they were thoroughly beaten by a Wolves side that, simply put, were much better than them. Will the same thing happen again? Don’t be surprised.

Leicester (H)

Leicester City are a tricky side to deal with, but even with that being the case, there shouldn’t be any kind of overwhelming worry regarding what they’re capable of – especially if Brendan Rodgers is still at the helm. That may seem and sound a little bit harsh, but they just don’t strike us as an intimidating side.
