Watch Arsenal vs Liverpool Live
1* – The players are out at the Emirates. The final game of the day is almost upon us…
5* – Both teams are a little loose with their passing in the opening stages. Liverpool look to have adopted a slightly deeper defensive line.
11* – Firmino works some space to cross from the right. Holding heads it away, and then Milner drags a half-volley wide from the edge of the box.
13* –;Robertson crosses from the left but gets it wrong and sends the ball out for a goal kick. Liverpool are just starting to establish some control now.
18* – A promising Arsenal move comes to nothing as Lacazette and Pepe can’t quite latch onto a cross from the left flank.
21*– The first Liverpool corner is taken quickly and chipped into the box by Mane. Gabriel heads behind, and Arsenal deal with the second set piece.
25* – Thiago plays an excellent diagonal ball out to Robertson, who does brilliantly to slide, keep the ball in play and pick out Mane in the box. The latter is quickly crowded out before he can do any damage, though.
28* – Half a chance for Mane. Salah can’t quite reach a Robertson cross but manages to keep the ball alive on the right flank. He tees up Milner, whose ball into the box is met by Mane.
33* –:Close! Pepe gives the ball away and Firmino has space to run into. He shifts the ball onto his right foot and drills a shot just wide.
36* – Arsenal finally register an effort on target. Aubameyang is played through on the left and manages to stand a cross up to the back post. Pepe meets it but nods a header straight at Alisson.
38* – Chance! Liverpool win the ball on the right and Alexander-Arnold is set clear. He pulls back for Milner, in space on the edge of the box, but the captain can only sweep his shot wide.
41* – Alexander-Arnold whips a free kick into the Arsenal box and Leno ventures off his line to punch clear.
45* –Tierney limps off. He’ll be replaced by Cedric. That’s a big blow for Arsenal.
There’ll be two added minutes.
48* – It’s a bright start to the half from Arsenal, who’ve clearly been told to step things up. The passing is crisp and more purposeful.
55*– Salah has an audacious long-range shot blocked by Ceballos. Moments later, he’s picked out in the box by Alexander-Arnold but can only prod a weak effort straight at Gabriel. There’s still a lack of conviction from Liverpool in the final third.
58* – Another opening for Liverpool but Firmino’s pass towards Salah is poor and Gabriel intercepts.
62* – Good effort from Cedric. The substitute is picked out by Aubameyang on the left and drills a shot at goal, forcing Alisson into a save. The Brazilian deals with it as nonchalantly as ever.
65* – GOAL Jota makes an instant impact! Salah finds Alexander-Arnold on the right and the cross from the full-back is superb, whipped in between Holding and Chambers and onto the head of Jota, who powers his header past Leno from close range. Liverpool lead.
68* — Chambers is getting some attention from the physios after colliding with Holding moments before the goal. He’s soon back on, though.
69* – GOAL A quickfire double for Liverpool! Fabinho plays the ball in behind and Salah beats Gabriel for pace. The Arsenal defender slides in but gets it wrong, allowing Salah to drive into the box and coolly slide his right-footed finish into the bottom corner.
74* – Salah tries a snapshot from the edge of the box but drags it wide.
77* – Aubameyang, disappointing tonight, is replaced by Martinelli. Arteta probably has one eye on the Europa League this Thursday
80* – Kabak does well to deal with a wayward Phillips header and carry the ball out of defence under pressure.
