LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - AUGUST 24: Mohamed Salah of Liverpool and David Luiz of Arsenal have a discussion after during the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Arsenal FC at Anfield on August 24, 2019 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. A brace from Mohamed Salah and a rare goal from Joel Matip showed that Jurgen Klopp's side will try to try to go the extra mile to clinch the English league title for the first time since 1990.

VAR confirmed the decision however the Brazilian defender didn't feel like it warranted a penalty, explaining to Sky Sports after the game that Salah had told him he didn't feel contact during the incident. "I think if you concede a lot of goals you can not fight for the title so this is one main thing we have to think about and try to reduce and try to make the team stronger". I think you have to be clever to take the positive things and think about the future.

"It is always hard to play there".

"The punditry is a world-class business - I have to think about if I don't do that after my career, because you can say whatever you want and you always put a finger in something". We have a lot of talent, we have players with a lot of quality.

Arsenal had more chances through the team's two strikers while Liverpool failed to break Arsenal defense. In the end, you are going to make the counts and you are going to see what went well and what did not and in this period we have to try and improve.

"So I'm going Liverpool, City and then Tottenham, I think they'll take third".
