Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal: Match report

Liveprool handed Arsene Wenger's Arsenal a painful and humiliating defeat at Anfield on Sunday as the Gunners' manager is sure to have his team selection, tactics and everything else about his running of the team questioned in the days that follow.

Following a loss to Stoke City, Wenger decided it best to drop Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac and Shokdran Mustafi as Danny Welbeck led the line and Nacho Monreal, Laurent Koscielny and Rob Holding looked to snuff out Liverpool's lightening fast, and clinical, attack as the back three.

That decision seemed ill-fated form the start as Liverpool tested Arsenal's brittle backline early and often. They opened the scoring after 17 minutes when Roberto Firmino turned home a Joe Gomez header with his head and from that point it was plain sailing for Liverpool.

As Arsenal looked to assert themselves on the game, they were picked off with a lightening fast counter-attack that fell at the feet of Sadio Mane and by the time the ball had curled expertly past Petr Cech, Anfield was abuzz and Mane was wheeling away to celebrate. 

It did seem, however, that is was too easy at times for the home side and as delighted as Liverpool fans will be, they surely also understand that this is an Arsenal team with serious issues and one that could well be at a crossroads. The next week will be a massive tell as to who does and does not want to play for Arsenal anymore.

It was much of the same in the second half and Hector Bellerin, the last man back from an Arsenal corner gifted the ball to Mohamed Salah when he mishit a ball forward. With 40 yards to run into, Arsenal players in chase might as well have been running in the opposite direction because the summer arrival was never going to be caught. He finished beyond a helpless Cech and Liverpool were most definitely home and hosed.

Daniel Sturridge added a little more lacquer to the scoreline when he headed home at the back post from a Salah cross having been on the field for just two minutes. His tame celebration said everything that needed to be said about the opposition.

The sweet release of the full-time whistle blew with Arsene Wenger rocking back and forth in his seat at Anfield just counting down the seconds. Alexis Sanchez disappeared down the tunnel and Arsenal fans were left with so many questions. The problem for the Frenchman on the bench is that the answer to a lot of those questions leads to the unthinkable for the veteran manager of the London side.

Liverpool vs Arsenal live stream online: Premier League preview

Liverpool host Arsenal in the pick of the weekend's fixtures in the Premier League - and it's a clash that in recent times has brought goals galore.

Indeed, the sides' last three top-flight meetings have seen the net bulge on a whopping 17 occasions.

Liverpool

Liverpool have a win and a draw to their name so far this term, having followed up a 3-3 opening-day stalemate at Watford with a narrow, 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Jürgen Klopp's men come into the visit of Arsenal buoyed by their qualification for the Champions League group stage on Wednesday, courtesy of a 6-3 aggregate win over Hoffenheim.

Trent Alexander-Arnold picked up a dead leg in midweek but is expected to be fit, as is Emre Can, who Klopp has said "should be OK" despite suffering a twisted knee.

Barcelona target Philippe Coutinho remains on the sidelines with a back injury, with Adam Lallana (thigh) and Nathaniel Clyne (hamstring) also still out.

After doing a Premier League double over Arsenal last season, Liverpool now have the opportunity to make it three league wins on the trot against the North Londoners for the first time since back in 1998.

Arsenal

Arsenal go to Anfield out to bounce back from the disappointment of a 1-0 defeat to Stoke City last time out, having edged Leicester City 4-3 in a week 1 thriller.

It's been just under five years since Arsene Wenger's men came away from Liverpool's home ground with all three points: a 2-0 triumph in September 2012.

And with four in the 'against' column already, the visitors' backline could really do without an on-the-road examination by the attacking trio of Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

However, the Gunners are able to slot Laurent Koscielny back into their defence following the completion of the Frenchman's three-match ban.

And Arsenal are also set to be boosted by the return of some major forward firepower in Alexis Sánchez, who has recovered from an abdominal strain and is in line to make his first appearance of the season.

With Shkodran Mustafi seemingly nearing a move to Inter Milan, the Germany international defender looks unlikely to feature on Merseyside.
