The Arsenal midfielder, positioned on the right side of the Gunners midfield, produced a very good performance against the Premier League leader. Omnipresent at the creation of the actions, he is at the origin of the opening score for the Gunners.
The English winger from Arsenal entered his match perfectly. In the duel with Joe Gomez on the right side, the England international was the first Gunners player to be dangerous in this meeting. He scored the first goal of the match after a shot was pushed back by Kai Havertz. Replaced by his compatriot Reiss Nelson after 79 minutes of intense effort.
The Argentine midfielder of the Reds, positioned at the heart of the game, also delivered a very encouraging performance. Jurgen Klopp's strong man since his return from injury at the start of 2024, he has completed 52 of his 59 passes attempted and won 11 of his 14 duels. He created several chances for the Reds but lacked precision in the last move (0/3 shot on target).
The Brazilian goalkeeper from Liverpool was not brilliant in his cages. Three goals conceded, two of which were avoidable, the second, after a big misunderstanding with Virgil Van Dijk and a risky exit, and the third, where he lacked vigilance on Trossard's off-center strike, which found his bridge.
The Liverpool right winger is the only established striker who has not tried his luck even once. Clumsy with the ball on his feet, the Portuguese missed the majority of his duels (8/12) and lost too many balls (9).
The Liverpool right-back has once again, as too often this season, produced a very pale copy. Yet considered the best player in the world in his position a few years ago, “TAA” lost 14 balls in 58 minutes, three of his four duels, and crossed very little, an exercise in which he usually excels. Furious when he left in the 58th minute (replaced by Robertson).
