Arsenal defeat dashes Liverpool’s bid for Premier League points record
Liverpool’s hopes of setting a new Premier League points record ended after a 2-1 loss to Arsenal on Wednesday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side – who will receive the trophy after the game with Chelsea at Anfield next week – needed to win all of their remaining games to surpass the tally of 100 points set by Manchester City two seasons ago.
Liverpool looked on course to achieve the feat when Sadio Mane scored from Andrew Robertson’s cross after 20 minutes.
Arsenal were then allowed back into the game before half-time after uncharacteristic errors by two of Liverpool’s most reliable performers.
Alexandre Lacazette took advantage of a dreadful back-pass by Virgil van Dijk to equalise before goalkeeper Alisson’s poor clearance gave Reiss Nelson the opportunity to score with a composed finish.
Liverpool will be disappointed to miss out on the Premier League points record after securing the club’s first title in 30 years with seven games still to play.
