The Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has reiterated that his defeat yesterday by the defending champion; Liverpool should not be put on the forward Lacazette, who missed two golden chances.

It will be noted that the match ended 3-1 in favor of Liverpool, a game where Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota, on his home debut, all scored after Lacazette had been gifted the opener following a Robertson error to make it 61 home league matches unbeaten - just two short of the club record set between 1978/81.

In his post match comment, the Gunners boss said:

"Obviously he had the best chance in the game to make it 2-2, and then again put us in a really strong position, but he had a great game," Arteta said.

"He put in another incredible performance and I'm pleased with him. I want to see my players upset and angry when we lose a game.

"It is a really tough place to come, they are a really good side. We stayed in the game for almost the whole match.

"Having took the lead, we should have held that situation a bit better. We conceded the goal too early.

"We competed well knowing the difficult moments you will have when you come to Anfield; when we had the clear chances to make it 2-2 we didn't take them.

"They want to win and this is what they are like, the mindset of the team. They go to any ground and want to win. They really believed we could come here and do it and for large periods of the game we were there."

"Lacazette could have taken it through, had a better touch. He should have put the ball into the back of the net, get into good habits.

"They are huge opportunities that you have to take. It was the middle of the goal.

"We have to credit the goalkeeper for standing up but you don't get many of those opportunities against Liverpool and you have to take them."
