How to Watch Liverpool vs

Within five minutes, Liverpool were in front.

Nonetheless, a mid-season deal appears unlikely and the Blues would have to wait until the conclusion of the current campaign to lure the 20-year-old away from Signal Iduna Park. Considering how good this team has been all season long without Firmino delivering the goals, this result just shows once again how dominant the club can be when they are all in top form. The Brazilian had started the season in relatively quiet form but he was the catalyst for their comeback on Saturday.

Sadio Mane put daylight between Liverpool and Emery's men in the 32nd minute making it 3-1 with an easy finish in the centre of the six-yard box after a cut-back from Mohamed Salah who broke free on the right channel.

Arsenal, meanwhile, can overtake Chelsea in the Champions League spots - at least for the moment - if they can leave Merseyside with three points.

Moreno was Liverpool's first choice left-back at the start of the 2017/18 season but lost his place to £6m arrival from Hull City Andy Robertson.

Liverpool outran their opponents by 114.8km to 112.7km and their pressing was ferocious. If that was a statement of intent from Liverpool another arrived nearly immediately, Firmino popping up with his second after Sadio Mané dispossessed Lucas Torreira in midfield.

There were moments of sloppiness in the first half, with Fabinho squandering possession in risky positions on a couple of occasions, but such errors matter little when Liverpool's attack is in this kind of form.

"Why should we not believe given what these players have done in the last 16 months?"

Arsenal gave it a shot, even inducing a mild frisson of tension by taking an early lead, but well before the end they were worn down by a relentless red machine. "We will rest now and prepare for that game".

'We need to do this progress doing a step every day.

It is clear, too, that they will take some stopping.

It is nearly as if talk of Manchester United simply clicking their fingers and poaching Pochettino has riled the players to go on and prove that they are a better side, with better prospects to boot.
