Liverpool’s chances of hitting 100 points in the Premier League season have been denied as Arsenal came from behind to defeat them 2-1. With the league title already wrapped up, Liverpool went into the game looking for a tally of record points to make progress on their bid. However, their form has been mixed since they were crowned as champions and it has continued with the defeat at the Emirates Stadium.
After 20 minutes, Sadio Mane put Liverpool forward, but when Virgil Van Dijk made a mistake 12 minutes later, things took a turn for the worse, leading to Alexandre Lacazette scoring an equalizer.
And Reiss Nelson scored on a half-time stroke for his first Premier League goal to bring Arsenal ahead.
No goals followed in the second half to ensure Liverpool loses in this season’s league for the third time and won’t be able to count to Manchester City ‘s record points anymore.
