Jurgen Klopp not surprised Liverpool beat ArsenalBy Kelly Sanders Mar 06, 2017
Maybe Arsenal would have lost regardless - likely, considering Liverpool haven't lost to a top six team all season and this match was at Anfield - but now there's a clear very bad decision on his part that killed nearly any chance they had. Who knows whether or not Klopp is such a nice guy behind the scenes with his players, and if this leads to an element of complacency.
Liverpool put their recent troubles behind them, showing touches of their best early-season vibrancy to overcame Arsenal 3-1 at a jubilant Anfield and leapfrog the Gunners into third place in the Premier League on Saturday.
Wenger said he preferred a direct attacking approach with Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck, but that was laughable.
Sanchez wrote: "The true warrior fights not because he hates the ones in front of him, but because he loves those behind him". And when you don't win the games it is not always down to real stories.
Indeed, that may still be the case even if the Gunners receive the miracle they need.
Sacrificing their league position, though, was somewhat suicidal.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says fans and pundits should not be surprised by Saturday's 3-1 win over Arsenal. It looked like this match could be a shootout, but Arsenal didn't have any bullets.
They have to face three of those teams and it's hard to see them coming out on top.

Arsenal now find themselves 13 points behind Chelsea but one point ahead of Liverpool going into the match at Anfield, not that Wenger is giving up on the title. And that's perfectly fine and reasonable, but then Alexis should have started instead of Alex Iwobi or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain behind them, not on the bench.
The north London club are already heading for the exit door in the Champions League.
"When [Sanchez] did not perform away when we lost too".
All of this comes as Wenger faces more heat than ever.
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League last 16 second leg with Bayern Munich due to illness. Predicting their starting XI is something of a lottery.
Chelsea, still the runaway leaders on 63 points, play at West Ham United on Monday while, on Sunday, second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, on 53, host Everton, and Manchester City, 52, visit Sunderland.
Sanchez courted controversy at the weekend with his behaviour on the bench against Liverpool, as rumours of a strained relationship between player and manager continue to do the rounds.
There is simply no bite to this Wenger team, who have just one victory out of seven over their their top-of-the table rivals this season with another three to come. "We have an opportunity against Bayern after that to show we can cause them problems".
