5'
Arsenal build patiently down the left and they are rewarded with the first corner.
7'
Liverpool manage to clear the corner after some initial jitters.
9'
Arsenal have not finished outside the top six on the table in 25 years. They have some work to do to maintain that record.
11'
Liverpool control their first corner but in the end it fizzles out into nothing. They are still finding their feet.
12'
Liverpool secure a promising free-kick after Mane is down just outside the area. A poor delivery from Robertson and Martinez collects it easily.
14'
CLOSE! Arsenal make a meal of clearing the ball from goal. Martinez kicks it into the path of Firmino and it deflects against the cross-bar. That could so easlily have gone in. Very Lucky!
16'
Arsenal have struggled securing consistent possession thus far.
20'
GOAL, LIVERPOOL, MANE! (0-1) There it is! Martinez clears in Liverpool's path. Robertson and Firmino combine well on the left. Mane then runs into space down the middle to accept the cross and finds the back of the net.

OFFSIDE! It could easily have been 1-1 and Arsenal launch a similar attack, but the flag is up!

29'
OFFSIDE! Liverpool continue to probe, but luckily for Arsenal Salah is offside on the right side of goal.
32'
GOAL, ARSENAL, LACAZETTE! (1-1) No clean sheet for Liverpool after a Van Dijk mistake. He is beaten off the ball by Nelson while trying a back-pass. A gift for Lacazette, who don't let those go to waste.
35'
That was rather sloppy from a normal razor-sharp Van Dijk. He was furious and claimed that he was fouled.
39'
Holding clears some danger in the Arsenal area after a Liverpool build-up and he gives away a corner. Liverpool cannot make them pay.
41'
That Lacazette goal was also the first Arsenal shot of the game.
44'
GOAL, ARSENAL. NELSON! (2-1) Another mistake and another gift! Robertson throws to Alisson, who clears casually. Lacazette is alert and rushes in to feed Nelson. Two shots and two goals for Arsenal against the run of play.
45'
HALF-TIME: ARSENAL 2-1 LIVERPOOL. Liverpool dominated the half but trail at the break. They made two mistakes and Arsenal made them pay.
46'
Kick-Off! We are back underway in the second half. Can Liverpool come back and show some character?
47'
YELLOW! A sloppy trip by Torreira on Oxlade-Chamberlain earns him a booking.
49'
YELLOW! Tit for tat and now Alexander-Arnold is in the book after a foul on Saka.
50'
How did that not go in? A scramble in the Arsenal area! Salah, Robertson and Mane all fail to find the back of the net. Well done Arsenal for keeping them out.
52'
They secure another corner and now they seem desperate to score. Once again we have a scramble and again they keep Liverpool out.
55'
SAVE! A great save by Martinez denies Salah after a superb cross from Alexander-Arnold.
58'
SUBSTITUTION: Cebellos, Aubameyang and Willock are on for Arsenal in place of Lacazette, Nelson and Torreria.

61'
SUBSTITUTION: Firmino & Oxlade-Chamberlain depart for Liverpool with Minamino and Keita coming on.
63'
SHOT! Minamino's first touch is a shot at goal and it's wide! Not a bad effort!
64'
Liverpool have a free-kick after a foul on Minamino. The free-kick is deflected for a corner.
67'
All the Liverpool pressure amounts to a flurry of corners.

87'
WIDE! Mane and Liverpool is at it again at pace and the final shot is wide. That was a huge chance!

We will have five minutes of time added on for stoppages.
91'
