four clean sheets in a row at anfield in the premier league for the first time since september 2013. they were really organise. if you give them some space and time, they will do what they want. also you are lost before the game starts. i don't think arsenal could do many times what they wanted. that is good to be boys. they worked very hard. defensively, the performance was not that good, and they took advantage of it. it raises many questions. but i still believe that these players are good. it showed the day. ——
