Joel Matip opened the scoring for the Reds in the 41st minute of the first half after a converting a corner into a well placed header. Liverpool from then wasn’t confessed with only one goal as they kept pressuring Arsenal until the remaining seconds of the half.
Second half opened with Liverpool further pressuring Arsenal into their midfield until Mohamed Salah was able to win a penalty in the early minutes after David Luiz pulled his shirt inside the box. Salah then scored the penalty in the 49th minute.
Liverpool’s third goal could probably contend with the all time great goals of the Premier League, as Salah sprinted towards the right wing dribbling past several players before swiftly placing the goal into the net of the keeper.
