Arteta urges Arsenal players to learn from disappointment, praises Ramsdale save.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said after the game at Anfield they took one point back from a 2-2 draw with Liverpool and left their last eight Premier League games remaining.

Arsenal took a two-goal lead, first from Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus, before being chased by Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino. Both of Liverpool’s goals came at the end of both halves.

“It was a very intense game. We got off to a great start. Possession of the game can do it the way we want score a goal first and play the way we want Scored the second goal of the game. And that’s when we have to close the game. But after that, before the end of the first half We left them hopeful, we conceded a goal and they regained their belief in the atmosphere of the stadium which was great.

“The second half of this game became a different story in the first half. We got off to a good start in the first few minutes. After that we couldn’t play in our own way. We lost the ball in dangerous areas. And when we let that happen to the best teams. It’s disastrous because we’ve seen a lot of the build-up to bring the ball into the box. And it’s even harder to deal with. And that hurt us to concede goals.

“We rely a lot on defensiveness, Ramsdale is very important defensively. And they also missed a penalty in this game. We should have done better when we had at least three counter-attacks. But we missed each other. We are decisive And you must take this big lesson. Play as you did in the first half. if you can do that We can win a lot of games for sure.
