After the game, Arteta said in a press conference: “It was an incredibly intense game. We started the game well, we controlled it and we did what we wanted. We scored the first goal and by scoring the second we had a kill moment. But Giving Liverpool hope before half-time. The second half was a completely different story. Against the best team in the world in a dangerous area, we conceded space and gave up all the balls. There were moments where we relied heavily on Ramsdale and Liverpool took the penalty. missed.”
“If you split the first half and the second half, it’s probably a fair result. We have to accept the result, and we learned a big lesson: ‘We have to play the way we did in the first half’. We have to look back and we should have done much better in the second half. “he added.
