Liverpool re-entered the race for a spot in the Premier League’s top four with a resounding victory over Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
Chelsea’s thrashing at home to West Brom earlier in the day opened the door for Liverpool, who burst through it in style with a win that puts them in fifth place, just two points behind Thomas Tuchel’s side. Only the fact that dominant Liverpool took so long to make their dominance count was surprising.
After 64 minutes, Diogo Jota headed Trent Alexander-brilliant Arnold’s delivery past Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who had just replaced Andy Robertson, to give them the lead they deserved.
It was not only the game’s defining moment, but also a welcome reminder of Alexander-abilities Arnold’s at a time when England manager Gareth Southgate thinks he can do without him.
