Former Liverpool winger Stewart Downing says Jurgen Klopp's side looked "sloppy and jaded" against Premier League title contenders Arsenal.

Speaking on the Football Daily podcast, Downing said: "Arsenal at home are a very good passing side, but I did expect Liverpool to not be without the ball as much as they were. They looked sloppy and jaded.

"I was surprised Darwin Nunez didn't start to be that threat if they were going to just sit into the game as Diogo Jota is more of a link player too.

"For me, Manchester City are still favourites and it will be between Arsenal and Liverpool for second place."
