"We play such good football going forward and maybe sometimes we need to switch that off for five or 10 minutes".

He was asked about Arsenal's second goal which saw Simon Mignolet beaten by a Xhaka shot from some distance. Today we make individual mistakes and that is not cool.

Hector Bellerin swung a cross to the far post and with Liverpool defender Joe Gomez losing concentration, Sanchez nipped in to head home. A poor Ragnar Klavan pass and an Andy Robertson giveaway were followed by more mediocrity from the goalkeeper as Mesut Ozil dinked over him from close range.

That means Alexandre Lacazette leads the line with Jack Wilshere in midfield and Ainsley Maitland-Niles at full back.

"We are working hard every day to win something and I am sure we will this year", he said. "We were completely inhibited", the Frenchman conceded.

He's the first Liverpool player to score 20 goals before Christmas since Ian Rush and after appearing pretty wasteful in his first few games, the former Roma man has been on a tear. We are always a better side when we draw.
