Kolasinac explains Arsenal's plan to stop Liverpool flyers

Mohamed Salah of Liverpool celebrates after scoring his sides sixth goal during the UEFA Champions League group E match between Liverpool FC and Spartak Moskva at Anfield on December 6

Roberto Firmino salvaged a point for Liverpool but this was undoubtedly a case of two points dropped for the visitors, particularly given all the goals they conceded were, to varying degrees, down to individual errors, with the goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet, badly at fault for Xhaka's on 56 minutes.

"Defending is a team thing".

"It's not about changing our style of play, but for a few minutes we need to be able to shut up shop", said the 31-year-old. "And the five minutes were very decisive tonight".

In August, Liverpool had all but annihilated Arsenal with their blitzkrieg and a similar story unfolded in the first half. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 10 league games while Arsenal have now won just one of last five league matches.

"They've scored three away from home at Arsenal", Carragher told Sky Sports.

It was Arsenal's third of the night when Ozil capped off a gliding run through a maze of Liverpool bodies and a fascinating one-two with Alexandre Lacazette with a delicious finish.

Idaho the fastest-growing state by population, US Census Bureau estimates
Net worldwide migration decreased 1.8 percent between 2016 and 2017, making it the first drop since 2012-2013. North Carolina added another 116,730 people in the a year ago - close to the entire population of Wilmington.

Liverpool took the early lead through Philippe Coutinho, though not in the typical Coutinho manner.

But Liverpool being Liverpool - and Arsenal being Arsenal - there were always going to be more goals.

The Merseyside club come into the game on the back of an emphatic 4-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend, and will be hoping to maintain this level of performance on Friday night.

Arsenal have been engulfed in their own label of mediocrity for years now, while Klopp's Liverpool, for all their creative guile, simply epitomise a lopsided attack.

Coutinho and Ozil were two of the most talked about players heading into the clash with opposing fans embroiled in a long standing Twitter beef over who is the better player.

"Then we struck back and it's point; usually if you go to Arsenal and get a point it is absolutely OK, we are not insane that we can not see that".
