Liverpool vs. Arsenal
Minute Commentary
90' FT: LIVERPOOL 5 ARSENAL 1
Leaders Arsenal suffer a humiliating thrashing at Anfield, torn apart by four goals in the first 20 minutes from an imperious Liverpool side. It was one-way traffic from the moment Martin Skrtel bundled home the opening goal inside the first minute. Sktrel again, Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge all found the net to put Liverpool out of sight at the break. The Reds coasted through the second half, but they still had enough desire to add a fifth from Sterling on 52 minutes. Arsenal's consolation came from a Mikel Arteta penalty 21 minutes from time. This was a damaging defeat for the Gunners, though, one that is likely to leave a great deal of scar tissue. There is also a good chance they will find themselves in third by the end of today, behind both Manchester City and Chelsea.
90' TAME HEADER
There will be three minutes of added time. This one has been over for a long time, in truth. Podolski's tame header is caught by Mignolet. Cissoko shoots across the face of goal in the last act of the match.
88' RISING DRIVE
Ibe hits a drive from 25 yards that is always rising and ends up quite far back in the Kop.
87' ALMOST A HAT-TRICK
Sterling just fails to complete his hat-trick, beating Mertesacker and Gibbs but being denied by Szczesny at close range.
86' LIVERPOOL SUBSTITUTION
Liverpool's final change sees Suarez make way for Aspas.
85' PASS GOES ASTRAY
Arsenal threaten a second consolation, but Cazorla is unable to find the unmarked Podolski with a back-heeled pass.
82' HISTORY TO PLAY FOR
You don't have to look back too far for Arsenal's biggest defeat in the Premier League. It was that 8-2 thrashing at Manchester United on Aug. 28, 2011. I was playing cricket that day and took great delight relaying the scoreline to a big Gunners fan who was batting at the time!
80' SHOT BLOCKED
Suarez goes on a driving run down the left before cutting inside. The Uruguayan would quite fancy a goal himself, but Koscielny blocks his goalbound shot.
77' LIVERPOOL SUBSTITUTION
Liverpool's second change sees youngster Jordan Ibe take the place of Gerrard. Suarez takes the captain's armband.
74' ROUTINE STOP
A loose ball drops kindly for Coutinho, but the Brazilian shoots straight at Szczesny from outside the area.
73' SUPER SAVE
A foul from Flanagan gives Arsenal a shooting chance from the free-kick. Arteta's dipping shot is heading for the corner, but Mignolet makes an outstanding save low to his left.
72' PAYBACK TIME
Gerrard catches Wilshere with a shoulder-charge that leaves the Arsenal man on the floor. That was payback for a foul in the first half. It was tough, but not malicious or nasty.
69' GOAL: LIVERPOOL 5 ARSENAL 1
Gerrard catches Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arsenal have a penalty. Arteta nets from the spot, straight down the middle. The comeback is on!
68' AWESOME COUTINHO
A wonderful sweeping Liverpool move featuring Philippe Coutinho ends with Henderson dinking a chip beyond the far post. Lovely football from the Reds.
66' LIVERPOOL SUBSTITUTION
Liverpool make their first change, with Joe Allen replacing Sturridge.
64' GENIUS FROM SUAREZ
Suarez tries an audacious 35-yard curling free-kick that would have dropped in the top corner had Szczesny not made an acrobatic save.
62' FLYING SAVE
Wilshere lets fly from 25 yards, but Mignolet makes a diving save for the benefit of the cameramen.
61' TRIPLE SUBSTITUTION
Arsene Wenger makes a rare triple switch. Off go Giroud, Ozil and Monreal. On come Podolski, Rosicky and Gibbs.
60' ARSENAL BOOKING
Wilshere is booked for a frustrated tackle on Sterling and gets the caution he has been asking for for the past half-hour.
58' COMFORTABLE SAVE
Oxlade-Chamberlain produces a sweet strike from distance, but it is too central and Mignolet has time to get his considerable frame behind it.
56' CLOSE TO A SIXTH
Koscielny trips Suarez near the touchline, but Mr Oliver takes pity on Arsenal and fails to produce a card. Sterling has the chance to bundle home a sixth from the free-kick, but fluffs the chance. The flag didn't go up, but he was clearly offside.
54' ARSENAL BOOKING
Giroud is shown a third yellow card of the season, for dissent. It has been a frustrating afternoon for the Gunners.
54' TOURE GETS AN ASSIST
It was Kolo Toure with the assist on that fifth Liverpool goal.
53' GOAL DETAILS
Sterling latched on to a hopeful long ball from the back. Szczesny blocked the first effort, but the winger buried the rebound.
52' GOAL: LIVERPOOL 5 ARSENAL 0
Raheem Sterling nets a fifth for Liverpool.
51' DANGEROUS FREE-KICK
Liverpool win a free-kick and Suarez delivers an excellent set-piece that comes off Sturridge's shoulder. The referee's assistant incorrectly awards a corner, but nothing comes of the blunder.
49' OZIL UNCONVINCING
What is Ozil playing at? He would have been in had he continued his run, but for some reason he stops and allows the goalkeeper to gather easily.
48' WELL-HIT FREE-KICK
Cazorla's free-kick looks like it is heading for the top corner, but it strikes the top of the wall and deflects for a corner.
47' LIVERPOOL BOOKING
Wilshere is brought down by Henderson, who is shown the first yellow card of the afternoon.
46' HERE WE GO AGAIN
Liverpool get the second half under way.
45' HT: LIVERPOOL 4 ARSENAL 0
What a scintillating first-half display that was from Liverpool, who lead by four at the break. The goals all came in the first 20 minutes. Martin Skrtel grabbed the first two, the opener from a first-minute Steven Gerrard free-kick and the second nine minutes later with a header from a Gerrard corner. Luis Suarez teed up Raheem Sterling for the third and Philippe Coutinho's wonderful pass set up Daniel Sturridge for a fourth not long after. Arsenal have been second best in all departments and they simply need to restore some pride in the remaining 45 minutes.
45' NOT THAT FAR AWAY
A hopeful cross from Suarez ends up not far away from Szczesny's right-hand upright.
45' LIVING DANGEROUSLY
Wilshere has fouled Coutinho and Gerrard with late tackles in the last couple of minutes and can consider himself lucky not to have gone in the book. Three added minutes.
43' TAKING IT EASY
Liverpool are coasting now, they know the points are already in the bag.
40' MONREAL INJURY
Monreal goes down with an ankle injury after an innocuous-looking challenge from Suarez.
37' SUAREZ STILL TO SCORE
All four Liverpool goals have come from players with a surname beginning with the letter S. You wouldn't bet against Suarez adding his name to that list before the day is done.
34' SHORT FUSE
Wilshere has a short fuse at the moment and is livid that Giroud failed to give him the ball in an advanced position earlier. The tackles are going to start flying out of frustration soon, mark my words.
31' WORD OF WARNING
Mr Oliver calls together the two No.10s, Coutinho and Wilshere, and tells them to behave after a minor altercation.
29' RAMPANT REDS
Arsenal are shell-shocked here, but it's understandable in a way. No side could live with Liverpool in this mood.
27' POOR CHALLENGE
Sterling is brought down from behind by Sagna, who is lucky to escape a yellow card.
24' KEYS TO VICTORY
What did Arsene Wenger say were his keys to victory before kick-off? “Adjust to the pace of the game here because it's always frenetic. And take your chances when you have them.” Hmmm, you could say the visitors never really got to terms with the frenetic pace of the opening quarter.
21' GOAL DETAILS
Coutinho played a perfectly-weighted pass around the outside of the two central defenders and Sturridge outpaced both of them to slot effortlessly past Szczesny.
20' GOAL: LIVERPOOl 4 ARSENAL 0
It's 4-0 now! Daniel Sturridge is the latest scorer.
19' REFEREE GOT IT RIGHT
Arsene Wenger and Steve Bould are furious with the referee for not awarding Ozil a free-kick, but having seen the replay it looks like the right decision. Mr Oliver is one of the Premier League's best officials in my opinion, and he got that right.
18' GOAL DETAILS
Ozil wanted a free-kick, but referee Oliver played on. Henderson fed Suarez and he laid it on a plate, crossing from the right for Sterling to ram home from close range.
17' GOAL: LIVERPOOL 3 ARSENAL 0
Raheem Sterling makes it three to the Reds!
16' HEADER GOES WIDE
Mertesacker meets a Cazorla corner with an angled header that drifts wide of the far post.
15' POWER-PACKED SUAREZ
That Suarez shot was so powerful I would swear the goal-post is still shaking!
14' BACK OFF THE POST
A blockbuster from Suarez from outside the box crashes back off the post and Toure is unable to stab the rebound home into an unguarded net.
13' ARSENAL ARE REELING
Liverpool should be three up. Suarez sets up Sturridge with a wonderful first-time touch and the England man is wasteful, shooting casually wide with only Szczesny to beat. Suarez then nearly scores himself. Liverpool are rampant.
11' GOAL DETAILS
It's a goal from another set-piece. Skrtel met Gerrard's corner from the right with a looping header from 10 yards that dropped just inside the post. What a start!
10' GOAL: LIVERPOOL 2 ARSENAL 0
Martin Skrtel scores again for Liverpool.
9' FLANAGAN GOES CLOSE
Flanagan is involved at the other end, seeing his cross-shot blocked by Szczesny after an excellent defence-splitting pass by Sturridge.
9' LUCKY ESCAPE
Liverpool have a huge let-off as Monreal chases a hopeful ball forward. Mignolet inexplicably punches the ball against his own defender, Flanagan, and had Monreal looked round he would have been left with a tap-in. Skrtel clears.
8' CREATURES OF HABIT
First thing I would do as an opposing captain if I won the coin toss would be to make Liverpool attack the Kop in the first half. They much prefer to kick towards their favourite end after the break, or so legend has it. Wonder if anyone keeps stats of what Liverpool's record is depending on which end they defend in the opening half? Not that it seems to be affecting them today, mind you.
6' ROUTINE SAVE
Sturridge cuts inside Monreal and shoots left-footed from 25 yards. Szczesny saves low to his left.
5' PAYING THEIR RESPECTS
There was a minute's applause before the match to mark the passing of former Liverpool striker Tony Hateley. Hateley was signed by Bill Shankly for a club-record fee, but only spent one season at Anfield.
3' GOAL DETAILS
It came from a wonderful free-kick from the left by Gerrard. Arsenal defenders failed to track the men they were marking and it went in off Skrtel's thigh. Borderline offside, but the linesman kept his flag down.
2' GOAL: LIVERPOOL 1 ARSENAL 0
Martin Skrtel gives Liverpool the lead inside the first minute.
1' HERE WE GO
Arsenal kick off, attacking the Kop end.
0' TEAM NEWS
Liverpool are unchanged from the side that drew at West Brom. Arsenal bring in the fit-again Jack Wilshere, with Lukas Podolski dropping to the bench.

0' PREVIEW
The big games just keep on coming in the Premier League. Last Monday two of the title chasers Manchester City and Chelsea went head to head at the Etihad. Saturday sees the start of a monumental week for Arsenal after which we will likely know whether their challenge is genuine. First up, it's a trip to Anfield to face a Liverpool team who have dropped only five points at home before hosting last season's fallen champions Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium next Wednesday. You could argue that Saturday's match is even more important for Liverpool than Arsenal. Defeat would leave them 11 points off the summit and herald the end of any realistic dreams of finishing as top dog. One of Liverpool's failings this season has been their inability to get results against the teams above them, but they still have Manchester City and Chelsea to come to Anfield, so they can't be ruled out yet. Not unless they lose at home today. Today's game kicks off at 1245GMT, so join us around 30 minutes beforehand when we should have the confirmed team news, which will be followed by a match commentary.
0' PLAYERS TO WATCH
Luis Suarez has one goal in his last three games for Liverpool, matching his worst run of the season, but has 23 in 19 games overall and is still on course to net 40 goals in what for him would be a 33-game season due to suspension. Arsenal fans, the time to get really nervous is between the 10 and 20-minute mark, where he nets more than a quarter of his goals (26 per cent). 17 per cent of his goals come between 30 and 40 minutes and another 17 per cent between 80 and 90 minutes. Suarez has so far failed to find the net in the first ten minutes of any Premier League match this season, so if he nets an early goal you are really in trouble. Santi Cazorla has impressed for Arsenal in recent weeks, with three goals and an assist in his last three outings.
0' HEAD TO HEAD
Liverpool have the better head-to-head record in league meetings between the sides with 69 wins to 63 by Arsenal and 47 games being drawn. At Anfield, Liverpool have twice as many wins as the Gunners (48 to 24) with 17 games ending up all square. The first meeting between the sides on Nov. 2 saw Arsenal record a comfortable 2-0 victory with goals from Santi Cazorla (19 mins) and Aaron Ramsey (59). The corresponding match here last season on Sep. 2 also saw Arsenal win 2-0 with Lukas Podolski (31) and Cazorla (again, 68) on the mark. You have to go back to Mar. 2007 for Liverpool's last win over Arsenal at Anfield, a 4-1 thumping. There have been three draws and three wins for the visitors since.
0' FORM GUIDE
Liverpool start the day in fourth place with 47 points from 24 games, eight behind leaders Arsenal. Incredibly, despite collecting 31 from a possible 36 points at home, Liverpool rank only the third best team in front of their own fans, behind Manchester City (33 points) and Chelsea (32). Only City have scored more goals at home than the Reds and only Arsenal have conceded fewer. Along with North London rivals Tottenham, the Gunners boast the best away record in the top flight with 26 points from a possible 36, their two defeats coming at Manchesters United and City. Arsenal are unbeaten in eight matches, while Liverpool are protecting a five-match unbeaten run.
0' EARLY TEAM NEWS
Liverpool will again be without Daniel Agger (calf), Glen Johnson (ankle), Lucas (knee) and Mamadou Sakho (hamstring), while Jose Enrique could be sidelined for another month as he continues his recovery from knee surgery. Arsenal are likely to be boosted by the return of Jack Wilshere after an ankle problem. Aaron Ramsey (thigh), Kim Kallstrom (back), Thomas Vermaelen (calf), Yaya Sanogo (back) and Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott (both knee) are out and Mathieu Flamini is still suspended.
0' MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Today's referee is Michael Oliver, who made headlines in August 2010 when he took charge of the match between Birmingham City against Blackburn Rovers aged 25 years and 182 days, breaking Stuart Attwell's record as the youngest ever Premier League referee. It took Oliver a while to find his feet, and he had two early red cards overturned on appeal, but since then he has proved himself to be an accomplished official. The Northumberland whistleblower has shown a total of 63 yellow cards in his 16 Premier League games to date this season, second only to Phil Dowd (71). He has also sent off West Ham's Kevin Nolan at Liverpool and Manchester United's Antonio Valencia at Hull. Oliver's assistants today are Stuart Burt and Gary Beswick, while Bobby Madley is the fourth official.
