Liverpool’s dominating 5-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday has got many asking did Arsene Wenger make a mistake by not bringing in any players in the January transfer window.
It only took Liverpool 20 minutes to score four unanswered goals against Arsenal who were left completely exposed against the attack of Liverpool.
Arsenal didn't bring in any players during the window, besides the midfielder Kim Kallstrom from Spartak Moscow, who is now injured for up to six games.
Arsene Wenger’s policy during the window hasn’t worked at all and many believe they should have brought in a striker and a midfielder but after Saturday’s performance you might think they also need new defenders now.
The quick pace of Liverpool’s attack was just too much for Arsenal and their defence was left open and exposed.
The combination of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge and the performance and goals from Raheem Sterling and Martin Škrtel absolutely dominated the Gunners, and the North London side were just unable to compete with Liverpool. They were unable to finish any chances they created and the only goal the managed to score was a penalty.
Wenger now has a huge uphill battle to climb if they should have any hope to win the title and finally end their almost nine year trophy drought.
Arsenal certainly made a mistake by not making any signings in January but they still have enough quality to compete for the title but with the form of their London rivals Chelsea and Manchester City it now seems as if the League is now a two horse race.
