The previously unbeaten Arsenal travelled to Merseyside for their third match of the new Premier League season where Mohammed Salah scored twice and Joel Matip added the third to thump Arsenal 3-1.

While speaking to a media house, 'The Guardian', in an interview, Ceballos said: "I've never seen anything like what I saw at Anfield."

"I haven't seen a team that plays better, that presses like them, the way the fans carry them along.

“They take the air from you. You spend so much time defending and when you want to do something with the ball, when you want to breathe, they're back on top of you. They're very well-drilled."

The Spain international midfielder, Ceballos, barely lasted an hour, but Liverpool's attack left a huge impression on the midfielder, who is on loan at Arsenal from Real Madrid So far this season, Ceballos has made two assists for Arsenal in two matches and would be looking to do more for the Emirates' side.

Ceballos played against the Likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid during his stint in the La Liga. But to pick 'Liverpool' as the team that plays the best football might undermine the incredible prestige of the Spanish football. Liverpool, though, ousted Barcelona from the UEFA Champions League, stamping their authority as European's best side.
