Mauricio Pochettino's recent comments have sparked a discussion in the football community about the perceived media bias in the Premier League, especially following his team's loss to Liverpool and Liverpool's subsequent loss to Arsenal.
Jones suggested that Arteta's fist pump is a form of imitation, claiming it is how their manager connects with the fans. "The gaffer [Klopp], the way he fist pumps the crowd, that’s kind of our thing.
"If they want to be stealing our stuff, it shows we’re on the right path if they’re copying us, “he said while speaking to BBC Sport. "They can have their moment and stuff, but there’s a long way to go," he added.
