With
Liverpool
losing
to
West
Ham
last
time
out,
Arsenal
went
into
Saturday’s
match
holding
the
longest
unbeaten
run
of
any
side
in
the
Premier
League,
but
their
streak
was
ended
in
emphatic
fashion.

Sadio
Mane
put
Liverpool
ahead
in
the
39th
minute,
with
Diogo
Jota
capitalising
on
Nuno
Tavares’ error
to
double
the
lead.

Aaron
Ramsdale
did
his
best
to
keep
the
score
down
but
Mohamed
Salah
got
in
on
the
act
before
substitute
Takumi
Minamino
scored
within
56
seconds
of
coming
on
to
add
further
gloss
to
a
win
that
sends
Liverpool
second.

It
took
a
touchline
fracas
that
resulted
in
both
managers
being
booked
to
spark
the
match
into
life,
shortly
after
Alexandre
Lacazette
had
a
goal
rightly
disallowed
for
offside.

That
incident
seemed
to
fuel
Liverpool’s
fire
and
Salah
should
have
opened
the
scoring
but
instead
directed
a
close-range
attempt
at
Ramsdale,
who
subsequently
flicked
over
Trent
Alexander-Arnold’s
shot.

Yet
the
pressure
finally
told
when
Mane
met
Alexander-Arnold’s
brilliant
free-kick,
with
Ramsdale
unable
to
keep
the
header
out
despite
getting
a
hand
to
it.

Liverpool’s
second
was
of
Arsenal’s
making.
Tavares’ dreadful
pass
across
his
own
box
fell
to
Jota,
who
coolly
rounded
Ben
White
and
Ramsdale
to
slot
home.

Ramsdale
denied
Jota
a
second
before
the
hour,
lunging
bravely
at
the
forward’s
feet
after
Salah’s
wonderful
first-time
pass,
before
making
a
fantastic
save
from
the
Portugal
international
in
the
68th
minute.

But
Arsenal’s
run
of
conceding
at
least
three
goals
at
Anfield
was
extended
to
six
league
matches
when
Salah
nudged
in
from
Mane’s
cross,
with
Minamino
then
prodding
in
with
one
of
his
first
touches
to
round
off
the
scoring.


What
does
it
mean?
Mind
the
gap

Arsenal’s
previous
defeat
was
the
5-0
hammering
at
Manchester
City,
and
despite
their
form
since
that
loss,
Liverpool
served
up
a
reminder
of
just
how
big
the
gap
is
between
the
Premier
League’s
leading
lights
and
the
chasing
pack.

Yes,
all
of
City,
Chelsea
and
Liverpool
have
slipped
up
recently,
but
as
far
as
title
contenders
go
they
are
way
out
in
front
on
their
own.
As
Salah
tucked
in
Liverpool’s
100th
Premier
League
goal
against
Arsenal,
it
was
difficult
to
imagine
the
gulf
in
quality
between
these
two
sides
has
ever
been
quite
so
prominent.


Familiar
foes
haunt
Arsenal

Only
against
Crystal
Palace
(13)
has
Mane
scored
more
Premier
League
goals
than
he
now
has
against
Arsenal
(eight),
with
the
Senegal
star
finding
the
net
in
five
of
his
six
such
games
at
Anfield.

Jota
also
loves
going
up
against
the
Gunners,
with
his
strike
his
fifth
goal
against
them,
more
than
he
has
netted
against
any
other
team.


Tavares’
Anfield
nightmare

It
seemed
a
brave
decision
from
Mikel
Arteta
to
play
youngster
Tavares
at
left-back,
up
against
Salah
and
Alexander-Arnold,
despite
having
Kieran
Tierney
available,
and
it
is
safe
to
say
it
did
not
pay
off.

Tavares’
performance
will
be
remembered
for
his
calamitous
mistake
for
Liverpool’s
second
goal,
but
he
was
run
ragged
all
match,
with
Salah
revelling
in
the
space
he
found,
having
a
game-leading
four
attempts,
while
Alexander-Arnold
joined
in
the
fun,
creating
a
game-high
four
chances.


What’s
next?

Already
sure
of
their
place
in
the
last
16,
Liverpool
host
Porto
at
Anfield
in
the
Champions
League
on
Wednesday.
Arsenal
welcome
Newcastle
United
to
Emirates
Stadium
in
their
next
outing
in
a
week’s
time.
