Liverpool produced a vintage attacking performance to rout Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday, the Gunners powerless to resist the Reds running right over them.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were excellent in every area of the pitch but it was in the final third that they dazzled the Anfield faithful with the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all at the peak of their powers.
In truth the game was over at half-time after Firmino and Mane provided a two-goal lead, but the home side pushed on in the second half to produce two cherries on top in the form of goals from Salah and substitute Daniel Sturridge.
After a draw in their opening match away to Watford, Liverpool have now won their last four matches in Europe and in the Premier League and head into the international break buoyant.
Supporters took to social media after the game to lavish praise on their heroes with the performance of Mane in particular enthusing fans…
Superb performance redmen! Absolutely superb! Mané, Firmino, Can, Salah, Henderson, Lovren, Moreno 👌🏻Karius did well with his punches. #LFC
