Arsenal without Ozil against Liverpool

Firmino made it 2-1 for the Reds and got his brace in the 16th minute, turning the game on it's head for the hosts with a attractive solo run, beating off three challenges from Arsenal players from 30-yards before placing his strike in the bottom corner, 2-1.

The Gunners were dead and buried in the closing minutes as the Reds opened a nine point lead at the top of the standings. Tottenham entered the day in second place but lost at home to Wolves, giving Klopp's team the chance to extend its lead, which it did comfortably.

"We stayed clam and really forced the mistakes". Lucas Torreira wasn't himself, Mesut Ozil was out injured, and the defense of the Gunners looked as hopeless as anyone can remember in recent memory. Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho all netted goals for Liverpool in the dominant win.

It was poor defending from Arsenal, but also the sauciest of solo goals from the Liverpool No.9.

The Brazil worldwide scored his second goal two minutes later when Firmino managed to evade two challenges and net just his second goal of the season at Anfield.

Absolutely brilliant, and boy is that a welcome sight for the Reds. He hadn't been particularly sharp from the penalty spot as of late and hadn't been scoring, but he solved both of those issues on Saturday.

Unai Emery's players must have felt pretty pleased with themselves after a torrid opening period, yet Liverpool snapped back in under three minutes.

"Why should we not believe with these players?" said the Spaniard. The defender did not do too much to bring Salah down, a point he was still arguing with the Liverpool striker as the teams headed for the tunnel at half-time, but he had his hands on his opponent and his attempt at a tackle from behind did not reach the ball. Nine points clear, and at worst seven clear if City wins on Sunday.

The sides drew 1-1 when they faced each other last month.

City were unbeaten in the league at the start of December and pundits were predicting one of the closest title races in years as they went head-to-head with Liverpool.

Since then, the Scotland global has become a fan favourite among the Anfield faithful, with Moreno making just two starts in the Premier League this season, leaving the Spaniard furious with his lack of opportunities under Jurgen Klopp, and looking to leave the club.
