Brinkwire Sport looks at four things Klopp got right as Liverpool gained a well-deserved victory and moved up to second place in the Premier League…

Ben White’s bringing the ball out of defence to drive the Gunners forward has been a key aspect of Arsenal’s tactical play.

This was something Klopp had clearly noticed during his pre-game analysis, and he devised a successful strategy to counteract it.

White was swarmed by Liverpool players whenever he attempted to stride forward with the ball.

As a result, Ramsdale, the Arsenal goalkeeper, was obliged to play more long passes, allowing the Reds to pin the visitors back.

With the Englishman facing his former team, Klopp chose to give Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain his third start of the season.

Oxlade-vigor Chamberlain’s in attack and defense gave the Reds’ midfield the perfect balance, and it was a choice that proved to be spot on.

He had an 81 percent pass completion rate and made important defensive interventions to ensure Liverpool maintained their early control.

Klopp chose experience over youth in his defence despite facing the pacy attack of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bukayo Saka, and Emile Smith Rowe.

Over summer signing Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip was chosen as Virigil van Dijk’s center-back partner.

However, with Arsenal failing to create chances, Liverpool’s experience proved to be the best option.

In the first half, the Matip-van Dijk partnership conceded an Expected Goals ration of just 0.20, with Arsenal failing to produce a significant chance.
