In new video from the game, Jurgen Klopp can be seen yelling at Ryan Gravenberch from the sidelines as Liverpool lost 3-1 to Arsenal.

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka scored the first goal, but Liverpool tied the game by halftime thanks to an own goal by Gabriel Magalhaes. Then, in the 67th minute, Gabriel Martinelli scored after Alisson and Virgil van Dijk got mixed up, giving Arsenal the lead again. Leandro Trossard scored in extra time to seal the win for Mikel Arteta’s team.

Dominik Szoboszlai was hurt and couldn’t go with Liverpool to North London, so Gravenberch got to start in the Premier League for the first time since Christmas Day.

But the Dutch player didn’t do much to help, and he was taken off after only 58 minutes.

Hawkeye camera footage from the Emirates Stadium has now shown Klopp getting angry with Gravenberch after Saka put Arsenal ahead in the 14th minute. This footage had not been seen before.

After the game, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said that Gravenberch was one of the players who had trouble keeping up with Arsenal’s movement on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

Klopp talked about a triangle on this [right] side at the end of the game, so there is no doubt about it, Carragher said.

There were two new players, Gakpo and Gravenberch, who had a hard time. Their pressing wasn’t timed right, so they were getting cut open. Little touches were played around them, and then Arsenal were out.

“Right from the start it didn’t really look like our day,” Klopp said after Liverpool lost. “But maybe we could have turned it into our day—second half, the start was really good.”

“Again, what momentum makes is just proof, evidence, call it what you want.” Arsenal got off to a good start in the first half.

“We didn’t play enough football; we needed to get used to each other. There were some things that were hard to find, like the right-side triangle.”
