Liverpool had only lost one of their previous eighteen games with the Gunners and conceded no goals in the last five. Barring an early header from Virgil van Dijk, England’s number four Arsenal didn’t give much away before half-time against Liverpool, who have won their last nine league games.
After the break, Liverpool struck: Thiago sent Diogo Jota into the depths with a nice pass, after which Portuguese Arsenal keeper Aaron Ramsdale knocked in the short corner.
Left back Andrew Robertson was the declarant at the 0-2. The Scotsman kept the ball well inside after Bukayo Saka had just tried to clear it up. Robertson then steamed up and saw how substitute Roberto Firmino only had to put his foot against his cross.
Record for Kane with victory Spurs
Earlier in the evening, Tottenham Hotspur won with the same numbers at Brighton & Hove Albion: 0-2. With Joël Veltman in the base with the home team and Steven Bergwijn on the bench with the visitors, the game seemed to be broken open by Harry Kane after a few minutes.
The English striker stole the ball from Brighton keeper Robert Sánchez, but then incomprehensibly missed the empty goal.
