Mohamed Salah has been preforming poorly in terms of goal scoring since Mane left for Byern minich. meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus has been a talking point in Arsenal this season after a successful transfer from Manchester city.
Bukayo Saka scored two goals as Arsenal beat Liverpool 3-2 at the Emirates on Sunday, returning Mikel Arteta’s side to the top of the Premier League table above Manchester City.
An absolutely thrilling match started with a bang, as Gabriel Martinelli fired the hosts into the lead just 58 seconds in. His goal was the quickest Arsenal have scored in a league match at the Emirates since October 2011. The goal also marked the tenth time the Reds had conceded first in their past 12 league matches.
Liverpool thought they may have earned a penalty after Diogo Jota‘s cross hit Gabriel Magalhaes‘ hand in the box, but no call was forthcoming. The Premier League confirmed to The Athletic that the penalty was not awarded due to Gabriel’s proximity to the ball, with the Arsenal defender deemed to have no time to react to Jota’s pass.
Liverpool would not trail for much longer, as Darwin Nunez equalised in the 34th minute. Gabriel was guilty of misplaying a clearance in the buildup.
Arsenal took their second lead of the day just seconds before half-time, as Saka tapped-in at the far post after Martinelli led a quick counter-attack. Gabriel’s dummy for Saka made up for the defender’s earlier mistake.
Liverpool responded well early in the second half, controlling play and levelling the score again, this time through Roberto Firmino in the 53rd minute.
Arsenal would not be denied on this day though, as they pressed on and eventually won a penalty as Michael Oliver ruled Gabriel Jesus was fouled in the box. Saka coolly converted from the spot in the 76th minute for his second goal and Arsenal’s third lead of the match.
This was just Arsenal’s second win over Liverpool in their last 15 Premier League meetings. Jurgen Klopp’s men have failed to win any of their first four away league matches of the season for the first time since 2010.
Arsenal make it eight wins out of nine to go back to the top of the table.
Before Sunday, Arsenal last beat Liverpool in July 2020. Since then, they had played 13 matches, drawing four times while losing nine.
Liverpool won their last two Premier League matches at the Emirates Stadium prior to Sunday’s loss.
Liverpool had not conceded a goal against Arsenal in their last three Premier League matches until this 3; 2 lost against Arsenal.
Arsenal continue to steamroll the competition, back at the top of the table with a one-point gap on Manchester City.
Their goal difference is well below their Manchester rivals, so they will need to keep producing results in order to hold on to their slender advantage.
From here, they will regroup for their Europa League encounter with Bodo/Glimt on Thursday before they head over to Elland Road next Sunday to face Leeds United.
Liverpool sit in 11th and will have to nurse their wounds as they face Rangers away on Wednesday before returning to Anfield on Sunday for a crucial encounter against City.
The penalty at the end will certainly be a huge talking point over the next few days.
