Reds bounce back to thrash Arsenal

English Premier League

Liverpool bounced back from the loss to West Ham United with a 4-0 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening.

Thiago Alcantara and Konstantinos Tsimikas returned from the Reds loss against West Ham United, whereas the Gunners named just a single change from their win over Watford in Thomas Partey.

A baptism of fire for the Gunners came inside the half-hour mark after a double save from Aaron Ramsdale parried Thiago’s volley and then smothered Sadio Mane on the follow-up too.

Arsenal refused to die down and structured their own minutes to the end of the half with Alexandre Lacazette on the end of Emile Smith Rowe’s ball, but the flag was raised.

The Reds stole the lead five minutes inside halftime when Mane peeled away from Gabriel Magalhaes to head in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick.

Arsenal were pegged back again moments in the second half as Diogo Jota made use of a loose ball from poor passing patterns at the back to round Ramsdale for an easy finish.

Thereafter, followed a substitution from the Gunners in the way of Ainsley Maitland-Niles who came on in the place of Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Liverpool continued to take charge and bagged a fourth with 73 minutes played after Mohamed Salah attacked a square ball from Mane following a pacey move to tap in from close-range.

The Gunners looked to grab a lifeline a few minutes later, but Alisson Becker made a fine stop to tip Partey’s powerful drive away for a corner-kick.

It was four in the last ten minutes when Takumi Minamino was left unmarked in the area to tap in with his first touch from the bench following a cross from Alexander-Arnold.

Klopp introduced youngster Tyler Morton introduced for his debut by the Reds late on, as the hosts saw out the rest of the game with relative ease.
