'Would've changed everything': Some Arsenal fans think the referee made a huge mistake last night

Not many people expected Arsenal to beat Liverpool in their own backyard on Monday. However, the Gunners stayed in the game for a long time, and on another day, we could well have knicked a point, or even three if we were really lucky.

Alexandre Lacazette scored the opener after an awful error by Andy Robertson. Liverpool hit back in next to no time with goals from Sadio Mane and the Scotsman himself to go into the break with a 2-1 lead.

Arsenal looked much better in the second half. We started brightly and Dani Ceballos coming on made us much more dangerous than we were in the first half. Lacazette had a glorious opportunity to level the game, but his shot was straight at Alisson.

That could well have changed the game. The Frenchman has been in good form having scored in each of Arsenal’s first three league games. On another day, Lacazette could’ve bagged himself a hat-trick, but it wasn’t meant to be on Monday.

Arsenal fans weren’t too fussed about the result. The usual lapses in concentration at the back cost us the game, and the difference in quality between the two sides was overly evident. However, some Gunners supporters felt that we should’ve had a big advantage very early in the game.

Sadio Mane caught Kieran Tierney with a stray elbow in the opening minutes of the game. The challenge might not have been intentional, but the Liverpool star moved away from the ball knowing very well that the Scotsman would’ve been at the end of his elbow.

Mane was shown the yellow card for his challenge but some Arsenal fans felt that he should’ve seen red. The Senegalese international went on to score the equaliser, and that angered Gunners supporters even more.

Here’s how a few of them reacted on Twitter:
