Liverpool looked well off the pace in the first half, and it it weren’t for some heroic goalkeeping by Alisson (and some terrible finishing by Arsenal), the Reds could have been well and buried. Joe Gomez struggled initially, but he stepped it up after a rough opening 15 minutes and absolutely pocketed Bukayo Saka. Jarrell Quansah again belied his age with some calm and composed defending in the center of defense, and even drove the ball upfield on several occasions. Curtis Jones was again strong on the ball, and managed to thoroughly embarrass Ben White. Trent Alexander-Arnold was very good on the defensive end to start the match and was the most dangerous player in the attack as well. The Scouser hit the crossbar and then caused the own goal with a sensational set piece sent into the box.
