Arsenal fans flag up major selection mistake as unbeaten streak comes to end in Liverpool drubbing


The Arsenal faithful have taken to social media in their numbers this evening, to highlight a key selection mistake as having proven detrimental in their side’s defeat at the hands of Liverpool.

Reds run riot

Mikel Arteta of course led his side back into action a short time ago.

In their first outing post-international break, the Gunners made the trip to Anfield, keen to build on an 11-game unbeaten streak across all competitions.

To say that, when all was said and done, Arsenal were brought firmly back down to earth, though, would be something of an understatement.

Though the visitors, in their defence, did not perform all that badly, they were simply blown away by the attacking might of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

A wonderful display on the part of the Reds ultimately played out into a 4-0 drubbing, courtesy of strikes from all of Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and Takumi Minamino.

Left-back dilemma

Liverpool, in turn, have climbed back into 2nd in the Premier League table, four points adrift of table-topping Chelsea.

At Arsenal, though, it appears very much back to the drawing board.

Though the value of months of positive work cannot be erased by one result, the Gunners were, in truth, provided with a firm reminder of just how far adrift of England’s top, top clubs they remain this evening.

But, as alluded to above, despite their side simply being outclassed by superior opposition at Anfield, the Arsenal faithful have nevertheless been keen to flag up one selection decision post-match, identified as having proven detrimental to their side’s chances of securing an unlikely result.

The call in question? Nuno Tavares’ inclusion over Kieran Tierney.

Portuguese stopper Tavares has of course thoroughly impressed of late, after being handed a consistent string of appearances amid the injury absence of first-choice left-back Tierney.

In turn, despite the latter having been fit enough to feature from the off on Merseyside, Mikel Arteta nevertheless opted to stick with the in-form, and inexperienced Tavares, giving rise to something of a backlash across social media:
