Mikel Arteta spotted mimicking Jurgen Klopp after the final whistle following Arsenal’s win over Liverpool



Mikel Arteta was spotted mimicking Jurgen Klopp following the final whistle after Arsenal secured a huge victory over Liverpool.

Arsenal closed the gap on Liverpool after beating the league leaders 3-1 at the Emirates on Sunday.

A Gabriel own-goal cancelled out Bukayo Saka’s opener as second-half goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard ensured the hosts registered all three points.

Jamie Carragher slammed the scenes at full-time as he made his feelings clear on Sky Sports.

Despite Carragher’s claim, it was a big win for Arteta, who was spotted celebrating his team’s big victory on the pitch at full-time.

He mimicked the German’s trademark fist pump celebration in front of the Arsenal fans in a jubilant moment.

Each fist pump was greeted with a cheer just like how the Kop end reacts to Klopp’s gesture.

The Gunners now have 49 points on the board, two points behind Liverpool.

Speaking after the result, Arteta told BBC Sport: “I’m very happy. It was a huge game that was going to dictate where we are and where we’re going to be.

“What the players produced was phenomenal. When they do that I have to put my energy in too.

“We are connecting with our people. We tried to produce a video to tell them how much we need them. They [fans] got the best out of every player today.”

The Spaniard praised Jorginho’s showing in the middle of the park, saying: “I couldn’t [single out one player]. Jorginho got man of the match. I couldn’t be happier. He’s a real example.”

He added: “Tonight we will enjoy it because we worked so hard to win it.”

Arsenal resume their league campaign next Sunday at West Ham United.

As for Liverpool, they face Burnley next Saturday.
