Jurgen Klopp: Leon Britton could be the right man for Swansea

Jurgen Klopp: Leon Britton could be the right man for Swansea

Sadio Mane has scored in each of his last three Premier League games against Arsenal, and only four players have previously scored in four consecutive PL games against the Gunners - Tomasz Radzinski and Peter Beardsley (four in a row) and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Harry Kane (five).

Liverpool host Swansea on the back of a remarkable 3-3 draw with Arsenal that saw the Reds establish a 2-0 lead then slip 3-2 behind before Roberto Firmino grabbed a 71st-minute equaliser.

Manchester City lead the points table with 55 points in 19 games followed by Manchester United (41), Chelsea (39), Liverpool (35) and Arsenal (34).

The result means fourth placed Liverpool remain one point above fifth placed Arsenal after the Christmas schedule got off to a cracker in North London.

Liverpool supporters took to Twitter to vent their frustrations with the goalkeeper.

But Arsenal hit back in stunning style with three goals in five minutes from Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil.

Klopp said: "He misjudged it". A second hand would have helped but that is how it is. That's a very important thing and in a very hard league, performance-wise we are really consistent so far.

"We've all been in games like that where you score and they go down the other end and score and there's always a mistake for a goal but at 2-1 what can you do to stop that game being a basketball game?"

The play began from some lackluster defending by Arsenal on a throw in and Liverpool is a team that will punish lazy defending, unless they're playing Everton.

Liverpool have reached the halfway stage in the 2017/18 campaign, but how much do you know about the Reds' performances this season so far?

"We play such good football going forward and maybe sometimes we need to switch that off for five or 10 minutes". All the goals were our fault, really, and that's something we have to learn from and we need to do it quickly, because it seems to be a thing for us this year.
