Arsenal lost a thrilling opening fixture with Liverpool today at the Emirates, going down 4-3 to Liverpool in a game where they fought gamely but just perhaps missed a bit of the defensive nous or steel that could have eased them over the line. Question marks were drawn in particular after the game at the selection of Calum Chambers and Rob Holding at centre-back for the Gunners; frustrations were aired, too, at the fact that Arsene Wenger had failed to secure significant big names in the transfer window. In particular at the fact that one target, Alexandre Lacazette, scored a hat-trick for Lyon in their opening Ligue 1 game against Nancy on the same day Arsenal played the Scousers.
