It made his decision to leave his most risky attacker Sanchez on the bench totally inexplicable, Wenger's tactical ploy backfiring badly as Liverpool assumed control in those crucial first 45 minutes. Klopp has had three transfer windows during his time in charge, but recruitment has failed to strengthen the defense to the extent that against Leicester, Liverpool was once again forced to play with two midfielders in the back line - Lucas Leiva and James Milner.
Arsenal continued to press as the game entered its final moments, but after Alexis Sanchez had seen a late effort blocked by Matip Liverpool swept to the other end and Georginio Wijnaldum finished a lightning counter-attack involving Adam Lallan and Origi to crown an impressive evening's work.
"He was certainly needed at Anfield - and Wenger's decision not to use him may come back to haunt him and Arsenal". We all play for our future, myself included.
Liverpool, meanwhile, welcome Arsenal to Anfield in a match that Klopp's men must win if they are to maintain their challenge for a Champions League position.
With a view to the visit of Arsenal, Liverpools ability to turn up for the bigger games does not augur well, and after a string of disappointing results, the law of averages suggests Klopps side are due a win. The top four, like Liverpool, is all that is left to play for in the league for Arsene Wenger's side.

Liverpool won an astonishing game 4-3 at Arsenal on the opening day of the season with Philippe Coutinho scoring twice - a match that said plenty about both team's strengths and weaknesses. We had hard words after the defeat at Leicester. "It is an opportunity we want to take", manager Arsene Wenger said. It's the rollercoaster of the Premier League. As it stands they've only beaten Man City (50), Newcastle (53) and Aston Villa (55) more often in home league games in their history. "We are working on it already - we might need between two and six players". Some players would rather live in London or Manchester instead of Liverpool, so we have to make a decision and try and make it happen. "We came back in the second half, responded well, but didn't perform at our level in the first half".
Arsenal do desrve credit for what they did in the first half but in the first half, they looked anything but a team that have been playing together for the last one year.
Undefeated in the league since October and buoyed by their league Cup triumph at Wembley last week, Jose Mourinho's side would go fourth, at least temporarily, with a win.
Arsenal have struggled against their top-six rivals - particularly on the road - and when you go to Anfield it is all about trying to ride out the storm.
