Liverpool sealed a crucial 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday evening, as they recovered from the woeful defeat to Leicester City.

The Reds were superb against their top-four rivals, with Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum all finding the net.

There were excellent individual performances everywhere you looked, but the team as a whole looked back to its devastating best.

Firmino’s close-range finish gave Liverpool an early lead, with the Brazilian finishing well after typically industrious work by Mane.

Mane was the Reds’ standout player on a great night at Anfield, with the flying forward bordering on unplayable with his pace, trickery and ruthless end product.
