Liverpool bounced back from Monday evening’s defeat with a commanding 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening.
Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal
Premier League, Anfield
March 4, 2017
Goals: Firmino 9′, Mane 41′, Wijnaldum 90+1′; Welbeck 57′
Liverpool went into the fixture in need of a victory following a hugely disappointing performance against Leicester City on Monday evening.
It was a strong start for the Reds as they dominated possession before Roberto Firmino opened the scoring after just nine minutes.
Sadio Mane doubled the lead shortly before half-time to round off an impressively 45 minutes from Liverpool.
Arsenal came out firing in the second half though, and Danny Welbeck netted a goal as the visitors mounted a comeback.
Liverpool were able to hold on before Georginio Wijnaldum grabbed a late goal in stoppage time to seal the victory.
