Liverpool reminded Chelsea that they’re very much still in the title race with a superb 4-0 win over Arsenal. 

Aiming to bounce back from their disappointing loss to West Ham a fortnight ago, Liverpool demonstrated all their firepower against The Gunners as they bombarded Aaron Ramsdale’s goal. 

A quiet first half came to life when Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta angrily exchanged heads following a collision on the pitch. Liverpool appeared energised after watching their manager lose his temper and they were rewarded when Sadio Mane connected with Trent Alexander Arnold’s cross.  

In the second half, Liverpool took over and their attacking play was breath-taking at times. Diogo Jota showed great composure to make it two ad the Portuguese forward was involved in their third goal as Mohamed Salah finished off a well worked team goal. 

Takumi Minamino, a late substitute, finished the night’s coring from close range as the scoreline resembled just how one-sided the game had been. Klopp wanted a reaction following the West Ham setback and he’ll be delighted with what his players gave him.
