Liverpool vs. Arsenal live score, updates, highlights from Premier League

It’s been a while since a Liverpool vs. Arsenal match mattered in the standings like Saturday’s match at Anfield Road.

Arsenal can overtake Liverpool in the standings with a win at Anfield Road and move into the top four, which is incredible when you remember that the Gunners lost its first three matches of the season. But a 6-0-2 run in the next eight has seen them quickly climb up the standings.

Liverpool is at home and only has one loss on the season though that came in its last game against West Ham before the break. but it’s missing one of its most influential players in Roberto Firmino, putting the weight squarely on Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to keep the Reds in the Premier League race.

77th min.: Another for Liverpool! And another overwhelming wave of attackers. Mane to Salah to Alexander-Arnold and his cross is touched in by Minamino. Cruise control or do they look for more?

76th min.: SUBS – Takumi Minamino and Jordan Henderson are in for Jota and Oxlade-Chamberlain.

73rd min.: What a goal by Liverpool. In a matter of three passes, they went from midfield to scoring in the Arsenal box. Jota touches to Mane wide left and the cross to Salah alone in front of goal for the easy finish.

68th min.: Another incredible Ramsdale save on a Diogo Jota shot going the opposite way. This would be a lopsided score if it wasn’t for Ramsdale.

67th min.: SUB – Martin Odegaard comes in for Alexandre Lacazette.

65th min.: Chance for Arsenal! Aubameyang with a diagonal shot that nearly beats Alisson, but the Brazilian ‘keeper gets his toe on the ball to deflect it.

64th min.: At this point it feels like Arsenal is playing down a man. Liverpool is first to everything and Arsenal can’t bother the hosts.

58th min.: Liverpool is pouring on the pressure and Arsenal is giving up the ball easily. The last play saw Diogo Jota and Aaron Ramsdale colliding hard. There’s a break in play.

53rd min.: SUB – Arsenal’s response to the goal is to bring on Maitland-Niles for Lokonga in midfield.

46th min.: Second half is underway. No changes.

Halftime: Liverpool 1, Arsenal 0

Halftime: After a slow start to this game, the action finally ramped up and the tempers flared between the two benches. Liverpool’s lead is arguably deserved after its start to the match. Arsenal defended comfortably for large passages of play, but the Aaron Ramsdale had to come up with a handful of big saves to keep Liverpool off the board before Sadio Mane’s set-piece header. Arsenal is going to have to take more chances in the second half if it’s going to prevent its first loss in nine matches.

43rd min.: Arsenal tests Alisson. Lokonga with the long-distance shot and Alisson is down low to stop it.

39th min.: Goal Liverpool! Free kick curled in by Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane heads it down and bounces in. Ramsdale couldn’t stop that one.

37th min.: Ramsdale again! Trent Alexander-Arnold cut inside and unleashed a left-footed blast which Ramsdale tipped over the bar. The 23-year-old is rising to the occasion.

35th min.: Save by Ramsdale again! Mo Salah thought he scored and then a defender clears the rebound before Salah can get to it.

33rd min.: Now the game is taking off. Both managers are sent off after the two benches flared up. Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp were in each other’s face.

31st min.: Fantastic transition by Arsenal and Lacazette scores, but Aubameyang was offside on the build-up.

30th min.: Aaron Ramsdale double save on Thiago and Sadio Mane! It’s been a quiet match as far as chances, but that was a great look and fantastic save by Ramsdale.

10th min.: Fabinho comes close. Liverpool has had a positive start, but Arsenal is defending comfortably for the most part.

1st min.: We’re underway. Liverpool immediately on the front foot.

11:45 a.m. ET: This can’t be a popular take about Anfield Road, is it?
