Arsenal manager Unai Emery is disappointed after their 3-1 loss to Liverpool on Saturday in the English Premier League but is optimistic they can only get better and stronger.
A brace fro Mohamed Salah and Joel Matip's header were enough to give the Reds a 3-0 lead, but Lucas Torreira pulled one back with five minutes left.
The Spaniard was impressed with how his team performed in long spells during the match and admits minor details made the difference.
He further took issue with the penalty awarded to Mo Salah, after David Luiz was adjudged to have tagged on the Egyptian's shirt.
"I think we showed character when we were losing 3-0 and not going down. We scored one goal but really we were looking forward for chances to score. In the first half it was the same," he said as quoted by the club's website.
"We did more in transition than other tactical actions, but also in the transition here against Liverpool, we (need to) take chances we made. In the second half the match changed,"
"They finished the first half 1-0 and in the second half the key was the penalty. I think it was soft and I think usually it’s not enough for holding, but it was decided like that and we continued in our way,"
Arsenal went into the match with a perfect record following two back-to-back victories; against Newcastle and Burnely, but will now be forced to go back to the drawing board.
They next host London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at their Emirates grounds.
