Liverpool produced a simply stunning display of attacking football to absolutely demolish Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s confidence-filled Reds hosted the Gunners looking for a third straight home win to cap off a promising start to the season in domestic and European competition.
And producing a magnificent team performance, the Reds romped to a brilliant victory over Arsene Wenger’s side to continue the unbeaten start to the new campaign.
Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah both came to close to making it 2-0, but Sadio Mane eventually did five minutes before half-time, curling a delightful finish into the far corner to cap off a devastating counter-attack.
The excellent Salah notched a stunning goal after the break to give the Reds a three-goal lead, running from inside his own half on a one-man counter-attack before slotting coolly past Petr Cech.
Substitute Daniel Sturridge then opened his account for the season by adding a fantastic fourth just three minutes after coming on, when he headed home a pin-point cross from man-of-the-match Salah at the back-post.
After seeing Karius keep a clean sheet on his return to the fold, Klopp reserved a trademark embrace for the incoming ‘keeper, who endured a mixed overall display.
It was a simply breath-taking performance from the Reds, who were in a completely different class to the visitors.
The resounding victory ensured Liverpool reach the first international break of the season unbeaten, with Klopp’s men now not back in action until September 9 against Man City.
