Watching the match, the Gunners started well and were dominating possession. They were choking the supply to Liverpool's front three of Kuyt, Carroll and Suarez, making all three strikers dropping deep to receive the passes. Liverpool's attacking threat were completely nullified in the first half. With Arsenal's precise passing keeping pressure on Liverpool, the Reds had to defend really deep with Lucas and Spearing scurrying all around the Liverpool half.
Spurs is next in Arsenal's challenging fixture list and we all know what happened the last time they met.
