Another game, another bizzarro world performance.

Liverpool had so much dominance against Arsenal. So many chances. So many goals not scored. Then Arsenal had a couple of decent moments and... they both went in.

Look, the title is won. This basically doesn’t matter so we can all laugh at it. Jürgen Klopp could not laugh at it.

“Twice, a massive lack of concentration, we took a break after 1-0, especially in the first half before the goal, we were just brilliant, we had 24-3 shots, that’s incredible but these two moments killed the game for us”, BBC Sport report the Liverpool manager as saying.

“Arsenal had no real chances, another shot in the last second, you cannot win football games when you concede goals like this.

“We took a break, that’s clear, lost concentration, it’s the Premier League and you cannot do that. Virgil van Dijk lost the ball but I didn’t see a lot of offers. Nobody wanted the ball. It makes no sense.

“We have to learn from that 100%, and we will. I am not sure we never did it all season, we had sloppy moments, once, twice, maybe three times but tonight we got punished from it. It’s good on one side because we have to learn from it.

“We were constantly dominant. It was a good game. Arsenal, they were there in two situations, I am not sure they forced them but they were there and they used them.”

Liverpool have won the Premier League and nothing else matters. Enjoy these stupid football matches for what they are.
