Liverpool thrashes Arsenal 4 – 0 at Anfield to end Arsenal’s unbeaten run

Liverpool beats Arsenal 4 – 0 at Anfield to end Arsenal’s unbeaten run to close the gap on league leaders Chelsea to just four points.

Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, and Takumi Minamino all scored to help Jurgen Klopp’s side get back on track. The Reds had gone two games without a win, but they made up for it with a victory over Arsenal.

The Gunners were the Premier League’s best team. Following a poor start to the season, Arsenal went undefeated in their last eight league games. Before heading to Anfield, Mikel Arteta’s side had won six and drawn two games.

Liverpool opened the scoring through Sadio Mane, who headed home from a Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick. The lead was doubled in the 52nd minute when Diogo Jota rounded off Aaron Ramsdale to tap into an empty net.

Mohamed Salah and Takumi Minamino scored two quick goals towards the end of the game to secure the win for the Reds.

The game had drama on and off the pitch. Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp were involved in a quarrel, which resulted in both managers getting yellow cards from referee Michael Oliver.

Despite a humbling loss to Liverpool, Arsenal remains in fifth place in the Premier League table. The Gunners lead Wolverhampton Wanderers by one point and Manchester United by three points.

Liverpool will play Southampton at Anfield next, followed by the Merseyside Derby against Everton. On the other hand, Arsenal hosts Newcastle United in the Premier League before visiting Manchester United at Old Trafford.

However, Liverpool and Arsenal managers Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta had to be held back from one another other in an intense moment during their English Premier League match Saturday.

In the 33rd minute of the match, Klopp was seen screaming toward Arteta near midfield, and a referee and another coach had to separate them.

Klopp appeared to really enjoy Sadio Mane’s goal to put Liverpool ahead 1-0 before the half.

The clash appeared to happen after Mane’s challenge on Arsenal center-back Takehiro Tomiyasu. According to the Evening-Standard, Arteta thought Mane caught Tomiyasu with an elbow as they both went up for the ball.

While the two managers appeared at odds, Arteta expressed admiration for Klopp and Liverpool before the game.

“It is difficult to judge just on this season because what they have done in recent years. I think Jurgen and his staff have managed to bring the club to the best moments in their history and to sustain it, which is the hardest thing to do,” he said, via This is Anfield.

“So they have transformed the energy around the place; I think the cohesion and energy they have created in the stadium is something special, and Jurgen has done that at other clubs he has been at so it’s a talent he has. He has built from there and obviously been extremely successful.”
