The Gunners were outgunned, outfought and outplayed as the Merseyside outfit ran riot over Arsene Wenger’s shambolic side.

It was a special display from the home side and it didn't take long for the Reds strong start to be reflected on the score board. Joe Gomez, replacing the injured Alexander Arnold clipped the ball into the area, his cross was met by the on running Firmino, whose glancing header handed the Brazilian his first goal from open play in the premier league this season.

Liverpool was firmly in the driving seat and started to accelerate far too quickly for Arsene Wenger's liking, so much so, Klopp’s side turned an Arsenal attack into a Liverpool goal in the space of 20 seconds. The effervescent Sadio Mane marauded down the left-hand flank, cut inside and delivered an exquisite finish to double the clubs lead.

After the break, Liverpool showed no signs of slowing down and had a third on the 57th-minute mark. The home outfit took the term counter-attacking to another level, a poor Arsenal corner was easily cleared, Mohamed Salah picked the pocket of Hector Bellerin and cantered towards Petr Cech’s goal. The Egyptian caressed the ball into the far left-hand corner and hands him his second goal in three Premier league games.

Daniel Sturridge completed the comprehensive performance, Salah’s delicious cross into the box was turned home by the English International from point-blank range.

This was the second time in three games already this season that the Reds front three have all scored in a game, with potential additions to the side before the transfer window slams shut coupled with the likely returns of Coutinho and Lallana, Liverpool looks primed for an exciting season ahead!
