In a thrilling Premier League clash, Liverpool emerged victorious against Arsenal, leveling themselves with Manchester City in the title race. The Reds secured an 8th win of the season with a final score of 3-0 at Anfield, thanks to Mohamed Salah‘s stellar performance.
Salah was the star of the show, netting two crucial goals on either side of halftime. His relentless attacking prowess kept Arsenal’s defense on their toes throughout the match. Liverpool’s third goal came courtesy of Diogo Jota, who found the net with 15 minutes remaining, sealing the victory.
While Liverpool fans celebrated the win, there was some controversy surrounding the match. Many believed that Liverpool was fortunate to finish the game with all 11 players on the field after an incident involving Japanese midfielder Endo. The Liverpool summer signing, who arrived for £16.2 million, appeared to make a dangerous challenge on Arsenal’s Christian Norgaard.
Endo’s tackle left Norgaard grounded, and it looked like he had connected with Norgaard’s knee. Despite the severity of the challenge, referee Paul Tierney allowed play to continue initially. However, VAR intervened to review the tackle, raising questions among rival fans.
Some fans on social media, especially on Twitter, expressed disbelief that Endo escaped a red card, particularly following Cristian Romero’s recent sending off in a similar incident. Others speculated that Liverpool might have received favorable decisions due to their recent complaints regarding Luis Diaz’s disallowed goal against Spurs.
Additionally, there were suggestions that Anfield’s atmosphere and home support might have influenced the officials’ decision-making. Some Liverpool fans even labeled Endo a ‘liability’ after his challenge.
Liverpool’s win against Arsenal was undoubtedly crucial in the Premier League title race, but the debate surrounding Endo’s challenge added another layer of drama to an already thrilling match.
