Yeah, they did better than I thought, but I'm still not sure what your point is. Klopp is an excellent manager but he still lacked consistency until he got his squad fixed, particularly in defence. Then he moved up a level. My point is that Arteta will be the same. He can only get so far with this squad however good he is. To move up to be title contenders will will need some smarter buying, like Liverpool have done. Not sure what's contentious about that.
