Arsenal Blown Away With Ease

Liverpool were at their scintillating best as they swept aside one of their big rivals, Arsenal. Following on from their impressive attacking display against Hoffenheim a few days earlier, Liverpool totally dominated the Gunners. In fact it is fair to say that Arsenal were blown away with ease.

The game ended 4-0 but in all fairness, 4-0 flattered the team from North London. It could have been 7 or 8 as Liverpool ripped into their lack lustre opponents. Such was Liverpool’s dominance, Arsenal did not manage one single shot on target at all.

Liverpool were on fire throughout. Leading 2-0 at half time through goals from Bobby Firmino and Sadio Mane, Liverpool went on to score another two in the second half. The pace and power Liverpool displayed throughout was so very impressive. Gone was the back four jitters. Mind you that was just as much down to Arsenal’s ineptitude as well as Liverpool’s defensive improvements.

Goals by Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge in the second half really put a gloss on a superb performance.

Liverpool’s ability to play against the big boys has never been in doubt. If only they could replicate this kind of form against the so called lesser teams. Having said that though, Arsenal’s approach is totally different to the low block defensive style of others. The way Arsenal play and set up is ideal for Liverpool.

See the highlights of Liverpool’s dominant performance below.

There were so many candidates for Man Of The Match. Mohamed Salah has certainly hit the ground running since his summer move from AS Roma. Bobby Firmino has also started the season well. As everyone can now see, Sadio Mane justs gets better and better.

If Philippe Coutinho stays beyond the transfer window, then Liverpool may be set for an exciting season.

Hopefully much more to come from the Reds. On this evidence there is plenty to look forward to.
