The mighty Liverpool crushed Arsenal in London (3: 0) and came close to the Top 4 in England.
Merseyside already has 49 points and has moved up to fifth place in the standings, just two from Chelsea. The Londoners are still in the middle of the table with 42 points.
Two “Emirates” goals for the composition of the champions scored Diogo Jota (64 and 82), one added Mohamed Salah (68).
Overall, Liverpool completely dominated the game and in the end they logically took the win and all three points.
For their part, the Arsenal players were too shy and did not show that they deserved to win anything from this match.
Liverpool started the game fiercely and put a lot of pressure on the hosts from the first moment. The champions completely dominated at first, but it was difficult to reach very clean goal positions.
In these minutes, the Arsenal players defended themselves completely and had difficulty crossing the center of the field. In the 25th minute, Milner centered on Manet, who fired, but Leno saved without problems.
There was an opportunity for Firmino, but the ball went wide. Arsenal’s response was a combination of Obamayang and Lacazette, but again nothing serious happened.
Towards the end of the half, Liverpool missed their clearest position when Milner, from the penalty spot, sent the ball to the right post.
Liverpool started offensively in the second half. The Merseysiders completely dominated, but never reached any goal. After 64 minutes, Diogo Jota made a complete fool of himself when he presented the ball to the feet of Trent Alexander-Arnold who smashed it into the open goal for FC.
Four minutes later, the champions decided the whole match with a new goal. Fabinho led the great Salah, who with a technical kick pierced the ball between Leno’s legs and made it 0: 2.
Liverpool scored a third goal. In the 82nd minute, Salah found Mane in the penalty area, who cleverly threw the ball to Jota, who sent the ball into the Arsenal net by 0: 3.
Liverpool could have scored more goals in the end, but took pity on their poor hosts. Thus, the “Merseysiders” deservedly took the victory and touched the Top 4.
