Salah on fire with Liverpool against Arsenal

Liverpool remain as the only Premier League side with a 100% record as they beat Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield on Saturday evening.

Joel Matip gave the hosts the lead just before the break as he dispatched Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner kick past Bernd Leno. Mo Salah then won and converted a penalty minutes after the break to make it 2-0.

He added another stunning solo effort just before the hour mark as he raced from the halfway line and slotted into the bottom corner. Lucas Torreira came off the bench to reduce the arrears late on but it did not mean too much as Liverpool chalked up another win.

Despite Arsenal’s tricky start, the Gunners really should have seized the lead as Adrian charged out of his goal and gifted the ball to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The striker then attempted to chip the ball home from distance but it dropped just wide of the Liverpool goal.

Sadio Mane should also have continued his electric form as he picked off a sloppy pass from Dani Ceballos but could only shoot straight at Leno. Arsenal record signing Nicolas Pepe then went even closer as he whipped an effort from range just wide.

Liverpool have now scored 26 goals against Arsenal since Klopp took over in October 2015. There have been more one-sided affairs than this, but at this stage of the campaign, it was a showing of remarkable physical strength.

“It was a brilliant game from my side so early in the season,” said a beaming Klopp. “It was outstanding. It was a performance full of power, energy, greed and passion, which I think you need to have against a team like Arsenal. We were completely in charge of the game. We are not Disneyland, we do not need to excite everyone in every second. Our identity is intensity, and we showed that today.”
