Liverpool produced a superb attacking display against Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday, with the Reds putting four past the Gunners.

Arsenal started with Alexis Sanchez for the first time this season, but from start to finish, they were utterly shambolic.

Liverpool, on the other hand, were sharp and fleet-footed and took the lead on 17 minutes, with Roberto Firmino heading home Joe Gomez’s centre.

After the game, Sky pundit Jamie Carragher highlighted Aaron Ramsey’s lack of discipline for the goal, with the Welshman ultimately hauled off at half-time after a dreadful 45 minutes.

Arsenal found themselves 2-0 down just before the break, with Sadio Mané cutting inside from the left before deftly curling the ball past Petr Cech.

The rout continued after the break, with summer-signing Mohamed Salah making it 3-0 after nicking the ball off Hector Bellerin (again playing as a left wing-back) following an Arsenal corner.

Arsene Wenger sent on Alexandre Lacazette and Olivier Giroud to try to salvage something from the game.

However, it was Liverpool sub Daniel Sturridge who would score the fourth and final goal of the game, heading home from a Salah cross.

The game would end 4-0 but it could have been even better for the hosts, if not for Cech, with Jurgen Klopp no doubt pleased to see his side play so well without Philippe Coutinho.

As for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, cheered on by a spineless board, continues to steer the team into the realms of farce, as another season of disappointment awaits.
