Mohamed Salah and Joel Matip were on target as a rampant Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners over Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday.
The Gunners started brightly with £72million summer signing Nicolas Pepe causing the Reds’ defence all sorts of problems.
But it was Liverpool who broke the deadlock through Matip, who powered a header past Bernd Leno in the latter stages of the first half.
Liverpool were much the better team after the break, with Salah giving new Arsenal signing David Luiz a headache.
The Brazilian fouled Salah in the box to concede a penalty, which the Egyptian converted. And was later skinned by him
with the Reds striker running through on goal to net Liverpool’s third.
Lucas Torreira bagged a late consolation for the Gunners but it was too little to late.
