Liverpool storms into FA Cup 4th round, Arsenal’s goal drought continues

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp praised his team’s resilience in a 2-0 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup, acknowledging the absence of key players like Mohamed Salah, Wataru Endo, and Virgil van Dijk. Klopp remarked, “That’s a really good football team we missed.” He commended the team’s performance despite the challenges, stating, “Football is like that.”

Klopp highlighted the team’s struggle to synchronise in the first half but lauded their resilience, especially in an away game. Liverpool secured their place in the FA Cup fourth round with an own goal by Jakub Kiwior and Luis Diaz’s injury-time strike.

Meanwhile, Arsenal faced their third consecutive defeat, notably struggling to convert opportunities. Manager Mikel Arteta expressed frustration at their inability to score against Liverpool’s makeshift defence, missing van Dijk due to illness. He defended his team’s performance, citing the courage displayed against a formidable opponent.

Despite calls for a new striker in the transfer window, Arteta backed his current squad, emphasising support for the players. Arsenal’s goal drought persists, leaving them searching for answers as they aim to regain momentum in the Premier League.


While Liverpool prepares to host Fulham in the League Cup semi-final, Arsenal’s focus shifts to finding their scoring touch ahead of their upcoming Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace.
