Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta rued Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard’s missed chances as the Gunners fell to a 2-0 defeat against Liverpool on Wednesday. Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League title-chasers halted Arsenal’s five-game winning run at the Emirates Stadium in a tight affair.
It was a game of few chances, and the first half ended goal-less after Liverpool registered the only shot on target of the opening 45 minutes. Only four such shots followed, and Diogo Jota struck gold with his sole effort on 54 minutes, firing a fierce effort below Aaron Ramsdale to open the scoring.
Arsenal struggled to respond after the Portuguese forward’s deadlock breaker, and Roberto Firmino’s 62nd-minute strike killed the game off. The Gunners remain one point above Manchester United in fourth but still have two games in hand.
