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.

And when Salah extended the Reds’ lead, there were celebrations…

 

Sturridge’s goal topped things off…

“Our best performances seem to come against Arsenal. We are simply irresistible right now!” – Steinhaus on the forums.
