I want to see my players upset and angry when we lose a game.‘When it comes to Anfield, you’re not going to get 10 chances, when you get through one against one with the keeper, you have to score if you want to get something from the game.’ Comment Mikel Arteta reacts to Alexandre Lacazette missing ‘best chance in the game’ as Arsenal lost to Liverpool HUGE CHANCE 😬Lacazette should have his second and an equaliser but he is denied by Alisson 📺 Watch on Sky Sports PL📱 Follow #LIVARS here: https://t.co/Fw8N8jFvoN📲 Download the @SkySports app! pic.twitter.com/TKZMdSNsSP— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) September 28, 2020 Manchester United legend Roy Keane was working as a pundit on the match and echoed Arteta’s sentiment that chances that good cannot be missed against a side like Liverpool.‘Lacazette could have taken it through, had a better touch.
