Mikel Arteta likes his Arsenal side to play out from the back, but Liverpool pressed them superbly to make it pretty much impossible for them to build anything.
This is fine play by Liverpool and shows why Klopp remains one of the finest managers in the game, both for his sharp tactical awareness and his ability to motivate his players towards this high work rate.
