Liverpool routs Arsenal 4-0
    2017-August-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

LIVERPOOL tore Arsenal apart with a devastating attacking display Sunday, producing a 4-0 victory in the Premier League that exploited an error-strewn performance by the London club.

Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah spearheaded the powerful assault on the feeble visitors at Anfield. Humiliation for Arsenal was complete when Mane’s replacement, Daniel Sturridge, finished off yet another counterattack to net the fourth in the 78th minute.

“We wanted to show our desire, our greed, our ambitions against a very strong side,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said. “We didn’t think about winning the game, we thought about the performance. The performance was perfect and the result is the result of the performance.”

Arsenal didn’t even manage a single shot on goal, ensuring it was a quiet day for Loris Karius, who was unexpectedly selected ahead of first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

“Today we were an easy opponent for Liverpool,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. Asked what went wrong, Wenger said: “Everything.”

It was a complete and potent display by Liverpool, even without Philippe Coutinho on the pitch as the Brazilian still tries to force his way out of the club before the transfer window closes Thursday night.

Coutinho is chasing the major trophies eluding Liverpool for many years, with the league last won in 1990 and the Champions League in 2005.

While such a ruthless rout of Arsenal will raise expectations around Liverpool, it followed an underwhelming start to the league campaign that saw Klopp’s side draw the opener at Watford then claim a narrow win at Crystal Palace.

But victory capped a week when Liverpool secured its return to the Champions League after a three-year absence, a competition Arsenal will be missing from for the first time in 20 years. (SD-Agencies)
