Hector Bellerin: Arsenal weren't motivated or ready for Liverpool's fast start

Posted March 06, 2017

Starsport revealed last week that behind the scenes he is making no secret of his desire to quit the Emirates at the end of the season.

While Wenger said the decision was based on tactical reasons, newspaper reports Sunday evening said it was because the Arsenal boss had lost patience with the star striker's attitude in recent weeks.

Instead of playing a more direct style, Arsenal continued to play like they have all season, with intricate passing along the ground.

There has been some talk that Sanchez is reluctant to renew his contract with Arsenal, which expires in the summer of 2018, but if Wenger left Sanchez on the bench as a form of punishment, it cost the club a much-needed three points.

"I think Alexis Sanchez, and a number of players, are waiting to see what Wenger does". "I will explain that later, one time". The controversial decision didn't work, because Wenger doesn't have players who are able to fulfill his tactics.

Klopp's urbane and charismatic image has been seen as one of his strengths but he has now been reduced to having to defend himself against accusations of taking Liverpool's slump lightly. Fans can deal with 3-1 losses sometimes.

Myles Garrett stuns Combine with incredible leaps, fast 40 time
It was the first time a 270-pound defensive lineman recorded a vertical leap of 40 or more inches since Mario Williams in 2006. Rarely do you have a consensus "best player in the draft" type of player, but Garrett appears to be that guy for 2017.

It is believed that the foreign players will be offered separate payments - some as high as $50,000 - for playing in Pakistan . Quetta Gladiators offered Bijoy to play for them after their overseas players pull out of the final for security concerns.

No. 3 Notre Dame defeated unranked Virginia, 76-59, on Friday to advance to Saturday's ACC Tournament semifinals in Conway, S.C. Donovan Mitchell averages 15.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game while Quentin Snider is averaging 12.5 points per contest.

Fast forward to Anfield on Saturday and Klopp watched his side thump Arsenal by the same scoreline, helped by Wenger's selection shocker. Georginio Wijnaldum finished the Gunners off with a goal in stoppage time. That can be attributed to two factors: poor defending from the midfield back, and the inexplicable decision to rest Alexis Sanchez until the second half.

Arsenal had some more opportunities, but Liverpool was clearly the better side with the better plan. Man City was: "We can do it sometimes"; Sunderland was: 'Yeah, that is the usual face.' So we have to keep on going in these parts and then, finally, probably everything will be good.

'The question would be why we didn't perform better.

40 mins Olivier Giroud looked to have been struggling badly with a hip or groin injury in the first half. But I am not angry in this moment.

"Usually, you win games and you lose against the big teams because at the beginning, when they are at a higher level, they are smarter and more experienced and you lose the games".

"We had a really hard week". A few tidy passes allowed Sadio Mane, who spent most of the day toying with Nacho Monreal, to play Firmino in for the goal. We are completely fine, the owners are fine, they are completely with us, the players - we have a wonderful relationship. "We need to be as confident as possible for the next match", Klopp said.
