Liverpool Go 9 Pts Clear After Thrashing Arsenal

Liverpool bullied Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday, as the Brazilian international, Roberto Firmino scored his first Premier League hat-trick ever.

Roberto Firmino was at his incredible best as he scored his first Premier League hat-trick to boost a 5-1 demolition of Arsenal at Anfield and put Liverpool nine points clear at the top of the table after Tottenham's shock defeat to Wolves.

The visit of Unai Emery's men was seen as a potentially troublesome fixture, but the Reds made light work of them, with all of their fierce front three finding the net in a amazing performance.

Arsenal versus Liverpool is now the highest scoring fixture in Premier League history (155 goals).Liverpool have earn 54 points from their opening 20 Premier League games so far this season; when assuming three points for a win, only Chelsea (55 in 2005-06) and Manchester City (58 in 2017-18) have ever had more at this stage in English top-flight history.

Arsenal conceded four goals in the first half of a Premier League game for the fourth time, with Liverpool responsible for two of those (Feb 2014 and today, as well as Man Utd in Feb 2001 and Chelsea in March 2014).

Liverpool are now unbeaten in 31 Premier League games at Anfield (W22 D9), their joint-longest ever unbeaten home run in the competition, having also gone 31 without defeat between December 2007 and August 2009.

Arsenal are now without a win in their last 20 away league games against fellow “big-six” opposition (D7 L13), losing 10 of their last 12 such matches (D2).

Roberto Firmino has been directly involved in 11 goals in his eight Premier League games against Arsenal for Liverpool (8 goals, 3 assists), more than he has against any other opponent in the competition.Roberto Firmino's hat-trick is the sixth to have been scored in fixtures between Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League - the most hat-tricks in a single fixture in Premier League history.

Mohamed Salah has both scored and assisted in the same Premier League game for the 10th time since the start of last season for Liverpool; only Neymar (11) has done so on more occasions in the big-five European leagues in that time.
