Roy Keane Slams Liverpool's Defending In 3-1 Loss To Arsenal

Jurgen Klopp's side lost for just the second time in the top flight this term but they were architects of their own downfall as some questionable defending from the likes of Virgil Van Dijk and goalkeeper Alisson Becker contributed to their defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal moved to within two points of the leaders with the win while are also not far behind the Reds.

“In terms of the intensity from the first whistle to the last from Liverpool, in possession and without, I can’t believe how bad they were,” former Manchester United captain and Sky Sports analyst Keane said.

“Again, credit to Arsenal, they turned up and were at it, but Liverpool defensively, the goals they gave away, like a pub team defending.

“Having watched the game live today, I know that Liverpool have had an off day and Arsenal are still nice on the eye, but I still couldn’t see these two teams finishing ahead of Man City. I just can’t.

“Obviously I’ve been proved wrong before, but you look where City are, with (Kevin) De Bruyne coming back, (Erling) Haaland’s available, I don’t see them two teams going right till the end.

“I think in terms of keeping up with Man City, I just can’t see it.”
