Jamie Carragher was spot on in his analysis of Liverpool’s win over Arsenal, according to fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds kept their 100 per cent record intact in a 3-1 victory at Anfield on Saturday.
Joel Matip gave them lift off in the 41st minute, before Mohamed Salah put them out of sight with two goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half.
Lucas Torreira did pull one back for the Gunners, but it proved no more than a consolation and Unai Emery was dealt his first defeat of the season.
Neville, though, insists the north London club can take positives from yesterday’s loss – while also heaping praise on Carragher.
“I really enjoyed the game in the first half,” he said on The Gary Neville podcast.
“I enjoyed the tactical element of it. Sometimes you talk about quality teams and I think we’ll get there in the end with Liverpool and Arsenal, there is a gulf.
“But in the first half there were two very contrasting styles.
“Jamie Carragher summed it up well, which is very strange, but he basically said that it’s Liverpool’s full-backs against the Arsenal strikers against Liverpool’s centre-backs, who’s gonna do the most damage.
“And I think that was the best synopsis of how the first half played out.
“In the end, the goal came from a corner but it was interesting, it was intriguing.
“It was a high-risk tactic from Unai Emery, he does these things. He was playing out from the back.
“There was a lot to like about Arsenal’s courage today to continue going in that game. They were nowhere near good enough. Liverpool were a better, better team.
“Liverpool have started this season where they left off. It’s the second game I’ve watched, I was here for the first Friday night football of the season where they were a little rusty against Norwich but won 4-1.
“Today we’ve seen them play against a top-six opponent and they’ve really just gone up a notch. They look like they’re coming into real good form.”
