Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool lost tamely to Arsenal at home today.
Having put in a superb first-half performance to go in 1-0, thanks to a Dirk Kuyt goal, Liverpool conceded a calamitous own goal by Glen Johnson and shortly afterwards Johnson was beaten to the ball by that fella Arshavin who fired Arsenal into a 2-1 lead.
It was a lead they never looked like losing as Rafa’s team never reached the heights of the first-half.
Torres was not sharp and wasn’t match fit.
Benitez at least brought on Aquilani but he took off Mascherano who had been playing really well for the Reds.
Instead of a titanic finish we had a lame and insipid end as Liverpool, short on confidence, meekly bowed out, losers of a pivotal match in the season.
Nice to see Xabi Alonso in the crowd, could have done with him on the pitch.
