Anfield Humiliation: Emery Questions Penalties Decisions Seeks VAR

Arsenal manager,  Unai Emery has questioned the penalties awarded to Liverpool and emphasized on the use of VAR in the league.

Arsenal were humiliated 5-1 by Liverpool on Saturday and its their worst defeat this season.

Emery in a post-match press conference said, “I think we started well, but after our goal, they pushed, they played with great determination and with players who can make a difference all over the pitch.

Reacting to the last two penalty goals that took Liverpool’s tall to five, Emery said ” I think VAR is important – it’s coming next year, because I think it’s going to help the referees to take better decisions.

“They scored three quick goals and it was a difficult moment for us. We spoke in the dressing room – it’s another experience for us. A bad experience but an experience to learn from.

” In the second half we needed to stand up, to keep our position individually and collectively on the game. The two last goals, two penalties, I think it’s a lot for us.

“We only can think now of the match on Tuesday and know the difference between Liverpool and us was not like today’s result.

“Maybe we can do one balance, one mix between our draw and this result today. We have a lot of work to do, defensively also, we know we need to get better.

“We need to keep the balance in the middle. We lost today 5-1, we need to keep the balance in the middle, be serious and continue on Tuesday with a big match at the Emirates. We need to show our supporters that we are standing up after the result, ” the Spaniard added.
