Match report: Reds respond with hard-fought win over Arsenal

4th March 2017

Liverpool took the spoils against a Premier League rival once again with a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday night.

Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane struck goals for the Reds in the first half, taking turns apiece to set each other up as Jürgen Klopp’s side grew in confidence.

Danny Welbeck halved the deficit for the Gunners after the interval, but the home side preserved their lead and bagged a late third through Georginio Wijnaldum to maintain an unbeaten record in meetings with fellow top-six teams this season.

The key points…

  • Firmino put Liverpool into ninth-minute lead
  • Mane doubled advantage to reach dozen for the season
  • Welbeck response not enough and Wijnaldum added third
  • Reds leapfrog Arsenal in Premier League table

The team news…

Klopp made one change to his line-up, with Ragnar Klavan coming into the side in place of Lucas Leiva at centre-back. Dejan Lovren made the bench after a month out due to a knee injury.
