Van Dijk Reveals Why Arsenal Beat Liverpool In Community Shield (See What He Said)

Posted by E.L.E.X on August 30 2020 under Sports









Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk blamed his side’s Community Shield penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal on their profligate finishing.

The Gunners won 5-4 on spot-kicks at Wembley on Saturday after a 1-1 draw with the Premier League champions.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s fine effort put Arsenal ahead but Takumi Minamino equalised in the second half with his first goal for the Reds.

Liverpool created the better openings, with Van Dijk seeing a goal disallowed for offside and James Milner spurning a good chance, but it was Rhian Brewster’s penalty miss that ultimately handed Arsenal the trophy.

“I think their main chance was the goal. It was a good finish but we should have done better there and shouldn’t have let him come onto his right foot, but obviously he finished it off,” Van Dijk told Liverpool’s website.

“During the whole game, we played well, dominated, pressed them well, and created many chances. Obviously in the end penalties is just a lottery and anything can happen.

“We are disappointed but we have to move on. Last year we lost on penalties as well and we won the league so we shouldn’t panic, but obviously we wanted to win.

“We had a massive chance with Millie [Milner], obviously my disallowed goal and a couple of dangerous moments, but if you look at the game as a whole I think we created many chances that we should have done better maybe.”
