Who Was Man Of The Match? Sadio Mané
Liverpool stayed in touch with Premier League leaders Chelsea after a sensational 4-0 win against Arsenal in which Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta came close to a collision.
After 33 minutes of mostly quiet play at Anfield, the game erupted when Liverpool manager Klopp and Arsenal counterpart Arteta got into a violent argument on the sideline.
The incident heightened the intensity of the game, ending in Mane heading home a deep cross from defender Trent Alexander-Arnold to give Liverpool the lead. Mane is our Man of the Match for this game.
Within five minutes of the restart, Diogo Jota superbly punished a costly defensive blunder, Mohamed Salah completed a move from close range, and substitution Takumi Minamino added a fourth with his first touch, as Arsenal faced yet another dismal journey to Merseyside.
The result puts Liverpool back on track, moves them into second place in the standings, and puts an end to Arsenal’s eight-game Premier League undefeated streak, leaving the Gunners in the fifth position, three points outside the top four.
