Liverpool produced a ruthless second-half display to blow Arsenal away and win 4-0 at Anfield.

Mikel Arteta’s side came into the match in good form, and hopeful of a much-improved display at a ground they have so often struggled at.

But goals from Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Mo Salah, and Takumi Minamino put an end to those hopes, as Liverpool’s frontline simply proved too good.

It was a relatively even and uneventful first half an hour, but the game suddenly burst into life.

Alexandre Lacazette had a goal ruled out for offside, before Jurgen Klopp and Arteta clashed on the touchline over a challenge fromMane on Takehiro Tomiyasu.

The pair were both booked, with Arteta having to be dragged away by his coaching staff.

Aaron Ramsdale then made great saves from Mane and Salah, but the goal eventually came.

Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped in the free-kick, and Mane was there at the back post to head past Ramsdale.

If Arsenal were solid and composed in the first-half, they were anything but after the break.

Their attempts to play out from the back cost them dearly against the rampant pressing of Liverpool, with Nuno Tavares caught on the ball and Jota showing brilliant composure to round Ramsdale and fire home.

Mo Salah then got his goal after Mane squared it across the face of goal, before Minamino came off the bench to score with his first touch.

It was a familiar tale for Arsenal at Anfield, and it brought a grinding halt to their recent good form.
