Wenger Slams Arsenal's Disastrous Display Against Liverpool

MUNICH GERMANY- AUGUST 02 Adam Lallana of Liverpool FC controls the ball during the Audi Cup 2017 match between Liverpool FC and Atletico Madrid at Allianz Arena

Liverpool recorded their second win of the new English Premier League season in style by destroying Arsenal 4-0 who were without Nigeria forward Alex Iwobi at Anfield, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Gunners were torn apart at Anfield with Wenger described his side's performance as "absolutely disastrous" as they slumped to a second defeat in a row and failed even to register a shot on target.

On resumption, Arsenal duo of Alexis Sanchez and German star Mesut Ozil combined well in serious efforts for them to reduce the scoreline, but Liverpool goalie Loris Karius was at his best.

Oxlade Chamberlain will be the first causality from last weekend's defeat, the Englishman whose future at Arsenal is now unclear has looked uninspiring and should be dropped and Hector Bellerin should be utilised in his place.

The darling of the home crowd, Sadio Mane, added a second five minutes before the break before Egyptian Mohamed Salah stole the ball from a hesitant Hector Bellerin 12 minutes into the second half before scoring the third. If you find a manager who is happy with that performance today, I wish you good luck.

Wenger's post-match press conference lasted only two minutes and 10 seconds before he left the media room at Anfield, but he also said: "The result is a effect of our performance".

At the end of the month we'll go through the results of the month's polls and vote The Liverpool Offside's player of the month and, come next May, those monthly results will help to determine your TLO player of the season for 2016-17. Every single part of their game was off. The emotions are big and very negative.

"We have played three games and I think in our first two games we were quite good - our performances were good".

"The result is a effect of our performance".

"The only positive out of the game is that we have time to respond, because it is early in the season", he said. "I believe this team has everything to complete and to be able to win the title".

"Of course, you can analyse the chances we gave away, but I just think overall the performance was not at the requested level".

Speaking on Sky Sports, Henry said: "I've seen this game before".
