Klopp hails 'amazing' Salah as Liverpool down Arsenal

5 things we learned from Liverpool’s win over Arsenal

5 things we learned from Liverpool’s win over Arsenal

The Ivorian raced clear and skipped past Andy Robertson with a deft touch but his effort was sacked straight at Adrian in the Liverpool goal.

Evening! Welcome to our live coverage of the game of the weekend in the Premier League, as Arsenal visit Liverpool with what must be a mix of cautious optimism and extreme trepidation.

Mistakes continued to come at both ends. Dani Ceballos gifted Sadio Mane a chance but the forward fired his shot too close to Bernd Leno, then Jordan Henderson's lapse allowed Nicolas Pepe to race away, though he could not beat Adrian.

After Joel Matip's first league goal in 11 months broke the deadlock just before halftime, Salah converted a penalty after being fouled by David Luiz and then made it 3-0 by turning Luiz near halfway, sprinting down the right wing and cutting in to deliver a finish into the bottom corner.

Liverpool is off to Burnley next, and then will enjoy the global break.

Only Liverpool easing up prevented further Anfield misery for Unai Emery's men, with substitute Torreira beating an unsighted Adrian from inside the box for a late consolation.

What does it mean?

It was partly successful for 40 minutes, with Arsenal coping with aerial bombardment and sustained pressure.

Liverpool are now the only team in the top flight with a 100% record.

The woman from Fujairah told the court she has grown exhausted of her husband because he never yells at her and was always kind. Meanwhile, the husband said he did not do anything wrong and wished to be a ideal and kind husband.

As for Liverpool, it was business as usual in this fixture.

Reds goalkeeper Adrian, fresh from his miskicking error which cost them a goal at Southampton last week, came out of his area to clear but only found Aubameyang who lobbed the ball back past the far post.

The Egypt superstar did not have a huge impact on the first half but burst into life following the resumption.

This seemed a weird stance to adopt, since the foul had been visible to just about everyone in the ground and David Luiz even acknowledged his error with a signal of apology, though his manager seems to believe that a tug of an opponent's shirt needs to be much more meaty before a penalty can be fairly awarded.

- Since Jurgen Klopp took over in October 2015, Liverpool have scored 26 goals in eight Premier League games against Arsenal - the most one side has netted against another in the competition in that period.

The Egypt worldwide confidently dispatched the penalty and added a second by brilliantly converting a three-pass move which eliminated most of the opposition.

Still, the game looked well poised at the interval with the threat from Pepe in particular raising the prospect of an intriguing second half.

The last player to achieve that feat was former Newcastle United midfielder Mikel Merino in Liverpool's clash with the Magpies in March 2018.
