Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Champions Maintain Perfect Start With Dramatic Comeback


Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Monday evening.

Liverpool dominated the opening exchanges but it was Arsenal who took the lead with a rare venture into the Reds’ half as Andy Robertson’s miscued clearance was turned home by Alexandre Lacazette.

But the hosts instantly hit back, Sadio Mane equalising from close range before Robertson atoned for his error by latching onto Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross and finding the net.

Lacazette was presented with a glorious opportunity in the second half to level the scores but he fired straight at Alisson, and debutant Diego Jota ensured his new side took home all three points with a super finish from the edge of the area two minutes from time.
