Philippe Coutinho's first half opener and Mohamed Salah's strike after the interval appeared to have put Liverpool on course for an early Christmas present at the Emirates Stadium.

Salah finally got the goal his enterprising display deserved in the 52nd minute, advancing in the area as Arsenal backed off before slotting a fine finish into the far corner.

Alexis Sanchez headed through the legs of Simon Mignolet from Hector Bellerin's pinpoint right-wing cross, and then the goalkeeper was beaten too easily by Granit Xhaka's viciously swerving drive.

Liverpool appeared to be cruising to an impressive away victory after Salah scored his 21st goal of the season to double the lead.

Roberto Firmino's goal in the 71st minute turned out to be the last of the game in a insane contest, which highlighted both teams defensive frailties. "We've got to become more boring". We need to play it a bit tighter and keep the ball a bit longer rather than trying to break all the time'.

However, he has won the fans over with his electric performances and is a huge reason the Reds are now sitting in the Premier League's top four.

Arsenal left the field to boos from the Emirates crowd after a mistake-ridden first half saw the hosts fail to muster a single shot on target, with Liverpool eyeing a repeat of August's 4-0 rout. "We were completely inhibited", the Frenchman conceded. All the players need to be spot on in this specific part of the game. It was good, though, because we were only 1-0 down at half-time.

"In the second half we have shown quality, character and played at our level".

Wenger sent on centre-back Shkodran Mustafi for Nacho Monreal, but the fault-lines in Arsenal's defence were still being exposed. That they combusted so heavily in five minutes was deplorable.
