It was a magnificent performance from Jurgen Klopp‘s side, who blew away their opponents with wave after wave of attacking football.
Here are five eye-catching statistics to have emerged from the game.
Big-game Gini shines
He didn’t score on Sunday, as was the case at home to the Gunners last season, but he completed eight take-ons – the most he’s managed in a Premier League game for the Reds – in what was a superb performance.
Klopp’s Reds making new records
Last season, not a single league game saw one team have six or more clear-cut chances than their opponents, but Sunday bucked that trend.
Mane joins elite company
Mane again showed that he is the Reds’ most important player on Sunday, scoring a superb strike and generally causing Arsenal all sorts of trouble.
Liverpool‘s defence has taken endless criticism of late, but has some of the vitriol been a little too harsh?
Sunday saw Klopp’s men keep a fourth league clean-sheet in a row at home for the first time since August 2013, and a first against Arsenal at Anfield since 2006.
Klopp’s superb record vs. rivals continues
The weekend thrashing of Arsenal was the German’s 28th match against those six clubs, and his statistics now read: won 16, drawn 11, lost one. Sensational.
