Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, has admitted that Liverpool were the superior side, following their 3-1 defeat on Monday night.
The Premier League champions ended the Gunners’ perfect start to the new season, while extending their unbeaten run at Anfield to 61 games.
Having lost their last two matches to Arteta’s side, the Reds started the game brightly, unwilling to lose a third straight game.
The first goal was scored by Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette after an Andy Robertson error, before Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota all scored to hand Jurgen Klopp’s men all three points.
Arteta while speaking to Sky Sports after the game said that his players failed to convert their chances.
He said Lacazette was most culpable, as he flunked two clear cut chances in the second half, with the scores still 2-1.
According to him: “I felt we had chances of drawing or winning the game.
“When you come to Liverpool away, you have to score your chances and not commit the mistakes we made.
“The difference is in very fine margins. The team made mistakes in the goals and our chances didn’t go in.
“We were way more effective in other games we played against them. We gave them a good fight but we’re frustrated. We’re getting better every day.”
