Liverpool's latest shot at history faded away yesterday as they surrendered a one goal lead against the Gunners. Virgil Van Dijk and Alisson Becker's Mistake gifted the Gunners all three points last night.
Jurgen Klopp's side gave up their chance of equalling or surpassing the 100 points mark set by Manchester City in the English Premier League, but blew it off as they were beaten by Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium. This was only their third loss of the season.
The Reds were in full control when Sadio Mane gave them the lead in the 20th minute. Everything looked nice for the Reds until Van Dijk then dwindled, and Arsenal equalized.
The Reds goalkeeper, Alisson, committed an error afterwards which Arsenal capitalized on and got the winner through Reiss Nelson.
The Gunners had just two shots in the first 45 minutes, and they buried it. In fact, Arsenal only recorded 3 shots in the entire 90 minutes while Liverpool had 23.
