Liverpool continued their bright start to the 2017/18 season with a huge 4-0 victory over Arsenal in the third league game of the season.

Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal

Premier League, Anfield
August 27, 2017

Goals: Firmino 16″, Mane 40″, Salah 57″, Sturridge 74″

Liverpool continued their unbeaten start to the 2017/18 campaign with a huge 4-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Pre-match, the biggest surprise was Simon Mignolet‘s absence from the squad, as Loris Karius made his first start since December 2016 and Danny Ward was handed a place on the substitutes bench.

Joe Gomez turned provider for Liverpool’s opener as he set up Roberto Firmino following a dominant start from the hosts.

Sadio Mane doubled the Reds’ lead shortly before half-time to round of a terrific first-half performance from the hosts.

Liverpool started off the second-half with a 2-0 lead but they extended it shortly afterwards when Mo Salah stole possession to create a one-on-one situation and duly dispatched the Reds’ third.

There were further opportunities to score but Liverpool eventually saw out an impressive 4-0 victory.

Here are all the reactions from supporters throughout the game.

 

There were a few surprises in the starting line-up

“Can’t understand dropping Trent and Mignolet. Both have been solid so far.” – Jamie Grogan on Facebook.

“A keeper who only shows improvement when benched is no long-term solution for Liverpool. Karius gets his second chance! The lad is no bench warmer. Justified.” – The_Red_Army on the forums.

 

Emre Can produced a sensational cross which almost led to Liverpool’s opener…

“Can, what a pass” – RobLFC on the forums.

 

But it was Gomez who turned provider 10 minutes later as Roberto Firmino headed in from five yards…
