Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool
Premier League, Emirates Stadium
July 15, 2020
Goals: Mane 20; Lacazette 32′, Nelson 44′
The Premier League champions made the trip to the Emirates for an attractive-looking encounter, with a record points haul still up for grabs.
It proved to be another disappointing away day for Jurgen Klopp‘s men, however, as their lack of intensity proved to be their undoing.
The night started well for Liverpool, who bossed their opponents in the early exchanges and saw Sadio Mane fire them in front.
The speedster steered home Andy Robertson‘s cross expertly, seemingly setting his side on their way to a 2-1 win in north London.
Despite their dominance after the interval, the Reds couldn’t find an equaliser, with Mohamed Salah coming closest to making it 2-2 after his effort was tipped over the bar.
