- Arsenal have won more points from losing positions than any other Premier League side in 2018-2019 (8). No doubt the point differences will increase as the season goes on and one way it will increase is when two of these top-six teams take each other head on.
"I could not believe it when he pulled out the red because we had got back in the game and we were in the ascendancy. Maybe their dropped points at Crystal Palace last weekend will have sharpened minds".
However, the scorelines, especially the Cardiff one, are slightly flattering as there were periods in the game last weekend that showed that despite the results, this Liverpool attack is not yet functioning like it was doing last season.
Speaking after the game, Liverpool boss Klopp said: "We scored a goal which was not offside and Virgil [van Dijk] had two chances he would normally score with his eyes closed".
Arsenal defence has been reduced to bare bones as Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Konstantinos Mavropanos are all sidelined with injuries.
Pep Guardiola's side came to the Emirates and brushed Arsenal aside and Liverpool will need to do the same to keep pace with them.
Milner is surely referring to a gilt-edged opportunity for Mohamed Salah to put Sadio Mané through on goal just before Lacazette's equaliser for Arsenal. "They score a lot of goals and are really good offensively", said Klopp.
"But we had them on the back foot and it is credit to the players". It doesn't have to, we saw in the Manchester City game (a goalless draw) that, but it is possible at least.
'It's very important when you play against City, Chelsea, Liverpool and if you win it's better.
"If Hector Bellerin is injured, you're talking about Granit Xhaka at left-back, a central midfield player, and Stephan Lichtsteiner at right-back, who has been a good player but is almost 35 now".
The Bournemouth supporters will no doubt be expecting more hard times to come, but for now they will enjoy their lofty position having been stuck in the relegation zone, 13 points and 13 goals worse off at the same stage of last season.
