Liverpool bounced back from Monday evening’s defeat with a commanding 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening.

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

Premier League, Anfield
March 4, 2017

Goals: Firmino 9′, Mane 41′, Wijnaldum 90+1′; Welbeck 57′

Liverpool went into the fixture in need of a victory following a hugely disappointing performance against Leicester City on Monday evening.

Jurgen Klopp made just one change to the side which lost 3-1, as Ragnar Klavan came into the starting lineup ahead of Lucas at centre-back.

Daniel Sturridge was ruled out with an injury but Emre Can retained his place in midfield despite criticism of late.

It was a strong start for the Reds as they dominated possession before Roberto Firmino opened the scoring after just nine minutes.

Sadio Mane doubled the lead shortly before half-time to round off an impressively 45 minutes from Liverpool.

Arsenal came out firing in the second half though, and Danny Welbeck netted a goal as the visitors mounted a comeback.

Liverpool were able to hold on before Georginio Wijnaldum grabbed a late goal in stoppage time to seal the victory.

Here’s how supporters saw the Reds’ emphatic win on social media.

But Welbeck’s goal wasn’t pleasing…
