David Moyes makes ‘killer’ Liverpool admission as Jürgen Klopp gets answer before Arsenal clash

Liverpool are getting ready for a massive clash against title rivals Arsenal this weekend, as the Reds seek to leapfrog their opponents to the top of the Premier League table with a win.

Liverpool were unable to beat Manchester United last weekend, leading to a frustrating 0-0 draw at Anfield.

But the Reds did get back to winning ways against West Ham United on Wednesday evening, as they secured the 5-1 win to progress to the Carabao Cup semi-final.

Curtis Jones, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo and Dominik Szoboszlai were all on the scoresheet in the dominant win for Jürgen Klopp’s side, as they look to carry this confidence into the Premier League clash this weekend.

One player who did feature but could not find the back of the net was Uruguayan forward Darwin Núñez, making it 11 outings since the former Benfica man last scored for the Reds.

It is a streak that he will be eager to break this weekend, against an Arsenal side that went unbeaten against Klopp’s side throughout last season.

Meanwhile West Ham United boss David Moyes has heaped praise on Liverpool, following their dominant 5-1 victory against his boys on Wednesday evening.

The Reds booked their place in the Carabao Cup semi-final this week, thanks to goals from Curtis Jones, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo and Dominik Szoboszlai.

Despite the tough defeat, which marked his 21st loss in a row at Anfield, Moyes could not hold back his praise for Jürgen Klopp’s side after the game.

“Liverpool played very well and obviously we didn’t play well enough,” Moyes said.

“The second goal was a killer when we were beginning to grow back into the game. “We gave them a really poor goal that made it really hard for us to get back and get any form of result.”

Following a strong summer of recruitment within the Liverpool midfield, Jürgen Klopp has found it difficult to settle on a specific combination within midfield, with Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Ryan Gravenberch, Wataru Endō, Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones all in contention.

However, following his strong performance with a brace against West Ham on Wednesday, Jones could have just answered a key question for Klopp ahead of their clash against Arsenal on Saturday. Gravenberch himself has been suffering with muscle fatigue over the last few days.

And that means that Jones could now retain his spot in the starting line-up following his strong performance against The Hammers, with Szoboszlai and Gakpo also retaining some confidence following their goals in the rampant 5-1 win.
