Arsenal 4-1 Scousers: Vote for Player Ratings/MotM!

A bright five minutes saw Simon Mignolet make two or three vital saves, after which it started to look like Liverpool would end up getting the first goal. Then, Arsenal erupted for three goals in eight minutes—Bellerín cutting into the box to curl home, Özil from a set-piece curling around the wall, and Alexis with a stunning strike right through Liverpool's heart—and we'd all but erased those 20 minutes at the Kop. Jordan Henderson squeezed a penalty past Ospina and it started to feel if not look like a comeback was brewing. In the 84th minute, though, Emre Can picked up a second yellow for scything Welbeck from behind, and ten-man Liverpool couldn't find any more finger-holds. Giroud nailed the coffin shut with a laser-beam to make it 4-1 (our 16th goal in stoppage-time this season). It was a brilliant result that elevates us, however briefly, to second place.
