  1. 'Firmino is a crucial player'

    Liverpool 3-0 Arsenal

    Alan Kennedy

    Former Liverpool left-back on BBC Radio Merseyside

    Roberto Firmino is the one that plays everyone into the game. He has been terrific today and he looks like he is enjoying every minute he plays. He's a crucial player for Liverpool at the minute.

  2. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 3-0 Arsenal

    Georginio Wijnaldum gets a rousing reception as he is replaced by James Milner as Liverpool make their first change of the game.

  3. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Arsenal

    David "hands" Luiz is at it again, this time pulling back Mo Salah as he powers forward in pursuit of a hat-trick. The whistle goes and Luiz looks around a little nervously. Fortunately for the Arsenal defender the offside flag was up for Salah.

    Ash Williams: Emery thought buying David Luiz would solve their defensive issues. He’s cost them twice in 10 minutes.

    David: Another howler by Luiz. Arsenal would be better off playing with 10 men.

  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 3-0 Arsenal

    Arsenal just have not been in it this half. Unai Emery tries to shake things up with a change as Lucas Torreira replaces Dani Ceballos.

  7. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Arsenal

    "Mo Salah, Mo Salah, running down the wing" reverberates around Anfield. No doubting who the man of the moment is. He has been sensational in this game.

  8. 'That is magic'

    Liverpool 3-0 Arsenal

    Alan Kennedy

    Former Liverpool left-back on BBC Radio Merseyside

    What a goal. That is absolute magic. Another wonder goal. You don't see these types of players very often. That guy is someone very special. He did everything right. It really was a wonderful strike.

  9. GOAL - Liverpool 3-0 Arsenal

    Mo Salah

    What a goal!

    Mo Salah, just inside the Arsenal half, races onto a ball from the back, does David Luiz for pace before powering into the area and then placing a clinical finish into the back of the net.

    Arsenal on their way to another heavy defeat at Anfield.

  10. 'Liverpool are pushing Arsenal back'

    Liverpool 2-0 Arsenal

    Alan Kennedy

    Former Liverpool left-back on BBC Radio Merseyside

    Liverpool are going for the jugular. Arsenal are continuing to defend well. As long as they keep doing that, they will be fine. This could still be anyone's game. Liverpool are showing very good quality in their side. They are pushing Arsenal back. They have good discipline. They are in such a form.

  11. Post update

    Liverpool 2-0 Arsenal

    Liverpool are playing with real confidence now whereas Arsenal look nervous. The visitors pass the ball nonchalantly around the back, despite Liverpool's forwards in close attendance and it is no surprise the Gunners ultimately lose possession before Mo Salah plants a header just over the bar from Andy Robertson's cross.

  12. Post update

    Liverpool 2-0 Arsenal

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang breaks the offside trap and is through on goal but Joel Matip gets back quickly to stab the ball from under the Arsenal striker's feet.

    Peter Malath: "Allow me to reintroduce myself, I am Daivd Luiz, here is your penalty, give me my yellow card."

    Ilyas Najib: Frank Lampard will be smiling even more after that Luiz error.

    Fahad Khan: Arsenal already searching the David Luiz receipt hoping for a refund.

  14. Luiz the liability

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at Anfield

    Madness from David Luiz - and that is where he can be a liability. He might as well have walked over to Arsenal manager Unai Emery and ripped up all his second half plans in front of him. Pathetic.

  15. Post update

    Liverpool 2-0 Arsenal

    Liverpool can sense a wounded animal now and they are on the hunt for more goals. They play some lovely one-touch football on the edge of the Arsenal area before Mo Salah shoots but his effort is blocked.

  16. 'It was a clear penalty'

    Liverpool 2-0 Arsenal

    Alan Kennedy

    Former Liverpool left-back on BBC Radio Merseyside

    I thought he was pulled back. It was a lovely move to put Salah in. He would have been on goal but he was pulled back. That was a clear penalty from here. The referee was only five yards away. Had to be a penalty.

  17. GOAL - Liverpool 2-0 Arsenal

    Mo Salah pen

    Never in doubt.

    Mo Salah smashes the ball confidently into the roof of the net and Arsenal have it all to do now.

    Mo Salah
  18. PENALTY TO LIVERPOOL

    Liverpool 1-0 Arsenal

    Dreadful start to the second half for Arsenal as David Luiz pulls Mo Salah's shirt inside the area and Liverpool have a penalty.

  19. Get Involved

    Yule: Pepe will make a solid partnership with Laca once he settles in the EPL.

    Phill Burns: Pepe will cause issues 2nd half. Arsenal to win from behind.

    Shan: If Pepe improves his finishing, he can be our new Henry; otherwise he will be another Gervinho.

  20. KICK-OFF

    Liverpool 1-0 Arsenal

    Back under way at Anfield. No changes for either side.
