With a full week to recover and prepare for a league match, the rejuvenated Reds made sure Anfield remains a house of horrors for The Gunners. Liverpool battered Arsenal 3-1 to remain atop the Premier League table.

Despite getting off to a strong start, it took Liverpool most of the half to finally breakthrough. Arsenal clearly planned to sit deep and use their pace to counterattack whenever the chance presented itself.

The visitors snatched at a couple of early chances but never really threatened, although Nicolas Pepe missed a glorious chance to put his side 1-0 up.

Then, just before the break, Joel Matip rose to meet a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner and give the Reds the lead. Another start, another assist for the right back.

As has become a feature for this Liverpool side, they started the second half sharply and strongly. Within minutes of the restart, Mo Salah earned a well-deserved penalty and emphatically converted it. By 60 minutes, he pushed another past Bernd Leno to all but seal the result.

Again, Liverpool conceded a late goal that proved only a consolation. It was minor, late loss of concentration but, unlike last weekend, it never even caused any nerves.

Here are four findings from the match.
