Arsenal boss Unai Emery says it is important his players learn from the crushing 5-1 defeat at Liverpool. Liverpool responded brilliantly to conceding only their eighth league goal of the season when Ainsley Maitland-Niles opened the scoring in the 11th minute.
They scored four goals in just over half-an-hour through Roberto Firmino (two), Sadio Mane and a Mohamed Salah penalty before Firmino completed his hat-trick with another spot-kick after the break.
Emery was in no mood for making excuses, admitting that Liverpool was the better side and deserved to win, but he says it is crucial his player learn from it.
“After our goal, they pushed and when they push here they play with determination,” he said. “This is a difficult moment for us, it was a bad experience for us. “But from a bad experience, you must learn. Two penalties were a lot for us to take. VAR will help referees to make better decisions.”
Asked what he thought of the award of two spot-kicks he added: “It wouldn’t change the score, Liverpool deservedly won.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
