James Milner blasted Liverpool team-mates during Arsenal draw, says Klopp

James Milner blasted Liverpool team-mates during Arsenal draw, says Klopp

The Swiss worldwide was prominent as Arsenal drew 1-1 with Liverpool, moving to a 14-game unbeaten streak.

Ultimately Alexandre Lacazette's excellent second-half strike cancelled out Milner's opener, and speaking to LiverpoolFC.com after the game, Saturday's captain bemoaned a lack of ruthlessness.

Granit Xhaka believes a renewed collective spirit will assure Arsenal a top four finish in the Premier League this season. You'd think Liverpool had lost the league after the game at the weekend because "oh it's two points dropped, Man City are gone two points clear", there's a long way to go. "We know the opposition well, where they are good and where they are not. But I think for the supporters and everyone around the club, Jurgen Klopp speaks very well and so do the players about the situation - Liverpool have made a brilliant start". "The best way is to do it right from the first moment and then you can build on that, but we didn't do it right from the first moment". The tactical things. You can see that on the pitch. He's getting better. I think he should buy all of the newspapers and read this.




Xhaka has had to deputise in left-back in recent matches as Arsenal suffer some bad luck in terms of injuries but he was back in midfield alongside Lucas Torreira in a good performance against Liverpool. Having arrived from Sampdoria this season, the Uruguayan midfielder has adjusted quickly and is a partner to the 26-year-old. Millie was the one who saw it for us.

"If you look at last season, especially away from home against the so-called top six teams, we didn't do well enough".
