G'Day and welcome to Anfield for our live coverage of this English Premier League clash between Liverpool and Arsenal.
1'
Kick-Off! We are underway here on Merseyside!
3'
It's a fast start by the home team and Mane puts the early pressure on Arsenal. Bellerin looked out of sorts there.
5'
That is followed by early exchanges between Mane and the Arsenal defence! This is going to be a lively one!
8'
Ainsley Maitland-Niles has made the Arsenal defence look more solid thus far and he will need a good partnership with Luiz here.
12'
Let's not forget that these two teams will meet again on Thursday in the Carabao Cup. Whatever happens this evening will flow over into that game without a doubt.
14'
Alexander-Arnold sends in a perfect cross for Van Dijk and his header beats everyone except the post and Arsenal escape with a CLOSE one.
16'
SAVE! Alexander-Arnold is involved again and this time he finds Mane, who shoots first time but Leno does well.
19'
Arsenal have been on the defensive for much of the game thus far. They will not mind that. The last time they met in the league they beat Liverpool 2-0 with almost no possession.
21'
Firmino, Robertson and Salah combine well but Xhaka is involved and concedes a corner.
22'
Alexander-Arnold drives the ball towards goal after the corner comes in and it deflects against the CROSS-BAR off Bellerin. CLOSE!
25'
GOAL, ARSENAL, LACAZETTE! (0-1) There we go again! Against the run of play! Just like last time.
26'
A mistake by Robertson who clears it straight into the path of Lacazette. He makes no mistake with his finish!
28'
GOAL, LIVERPOOL, MANE! (1-1). Well that did not take long!
30'
David Luiz fouls Keita very stupidly and Firmino then involves Salah, who beats Tierney before shooting. Leno punches at it and it falls for Mane. The rest is history!
34'
GOAL, LIVERPOOL, ROBERTSON! (2-1) He makes up for that mistake that gave Arsenal the opener!
34'
After that minor setback of the early goal Liverpool are on the attack yet again.
35'
Alexander-Arnolds sends a floater into the penalty area that Bellerin follows closely into the path of Robertson, who fires it home with precision past a diving Leno!
39'
That mistake by Robertson and conceding the first goal is just what Liverpool needed. They have been ruthless since. Where to from here?
41'
SAVE! Leno is into action again after good combination play between Alexander-Arnold and Firmino. They hand it to Salah but it's Leno to the rescue for Arsenal!
43'
Luiz sends a glorious pass to Maitland-Niles into space, however his finish is poor and straight to Alisson. That could have turned things upside-down here!
45'
HALF-TIME: LIVERPOOL 2-1 ARSENAL. This has been one of the most exciting halves thus far this season and we could have had more goals. I am sure we will see more after the break.
45'
We will have two minutes of time added on for stoppages.
46'
We are back underway in the second half.
48'
Wijnaldum sends Mane away to start a Liverpool counter-press but due to pressure from Xhaka the shot is OVER!
49'
YELLOW! Alexander-Arnold is in the book after a harsh tackle on Tierney. The stud marks are still visible!
51'
Van Dijk has been involved in a number of attacks for Liverpool this evening.
53'
How long will Holding be with us? He has made a few judgement errors thus far. They have not cost Arsenal but they need to be careful. He is struggling to keep Robertson at bay.
57'
Liverpool continue to look dangerous as they build patiently time and time again.
60'
SUB: A change for Arsenal and Ceballos is on to replace Xhaka.
63'
WOW! Van Dijk tries his luck with a long-range effort but Leno does well to follow it all the way into his gloves and then spills it slightly. Great work all round!
64'
MISSED OPPORTUNITY! Arsenal will kick themselves. Ceballos sends a good pass into the gap for Lacazette, who is beaten to the ball by Alisson. He should have done better there!
68'
YELLOW! Bellerin has his name taken for pulling the shirt of Mane under pressure.
69'
SUB: Another Arsenal change. Pepe is on for Willian.
72'
YELLOW! Arsenal give the ball away again and Mane is then fouled by Ceballos, who is booked for a cynical challenge.
74'
Arsenal manage to beat Salah to the ball as Robertson floats in the subsequent set-piece.
75'
SUB: The third Arsenal change invloves Nketiah replacing Lacazette.
76'
Firmino picks it out and shoots to win a corner, as Liverpool launch yet another counter-attack after some danger was averted by Alisson. This is going to be an exciting last 15 minutes.i
80'
SUB: The first Klopp change is a double-change. Mane and Keita are off and on comes Milner and Jota.
82'
Jota has his first shot at goal on the edge of the Arsenal-D and unfortunately for him it sails OVER!
84'
Jota receives an offload from Salah and this time hits the side-net! Wow - He may still score here this evening!
85'
Pepe messes up an Arsenal corner and needless to say Liverpool press forward.
87'
WASTED OPPORTUNITY! This time Salah obstructs Jota, who cannot get his shot away. Salah should have done better there!
88'
GOAL, LIVERPOOL, JOTA! (3-1) A goal on debut for The Reds in the league! He looked like scoring since he came on.
89'
Alexander-Arnold somehow finds Luiz, who's header cannot fall better for Jota. Needless to say he finds the bottom corner!
90'
SUB: Minamino is now on for Firmino as Liverpool make a late change.
91'
We are now into the three minutes of time added on for stoppages.
94'
FULL-TIME: LIVERPOOL 3-1 ARSENAL. Liverpool maintain their impressive Anfield record in the league and are the deserved winners this evening, Thank you for joining us!
