Well that was pretty terrible. Liverpool were disjointed and struggled to get themselves going in the first half. A short spell of improved play to start the second half gave the Reds some hope, but mistakes gifted Arsenal too many opportunities.
None of the Liverpool players truly covered themselves in glory, but Curtis Jones did a very nice job of handling the Arsenal press and progressing the ball up the pitch. Alexis Mac Allister got caught on the ball a couple of times early in the match, but he recovered to put together another solid display in the holding role. Joe Gomez did a nice job keeping Bukaya Saka quiet for the most part, and Luis Diaz caused the own goal that put Liverpool level at the end of the first half.
