Liverpool's victory ensured they remain in the thick of the battle for the Champions League places in fourth spot - five points behind second-placed Manchester United.

He made amends six minutes after the restart by meeting Coutinho's delivery from a free-kick. He made it look easy, but it was a technique which is the result of hours of practice as well as natural Brazilian ability.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he is not a coach who ignores the defensive side of the game, claiming that it is his instinct to "defend first" rather than go or all out attack.

Two goals in a minute ensued Trent Alexander-Arnold rifling in his first goal for the club on 65 minutes before Firmino struck again.

Under caretaker boss Leon Britton they did not have the game plan to cope with the creativity of Coutinho, Liverpool captain in the absence of the injured Jordan Henderson, and the movement of Firmino. It's hard seeing it after being at the club for so long.

It meant the visitors enjoyed a relatively easy opening 45 minutes, with their one chance a far-post header from Ayew which Simon Mignolet saved at the second attempt.

"So we had these few problems and in the second half we did it better".

It was his 19th Premier League goal from outside the penalty area and only Steven Gerrard (33) has now scored more from distance for Liverpool. The Liverpool-born right back sprinted onto the ball before powering it off the underside of the bar for his first Premier League goal.

Meanwhile, Joe Gomez was particularly at fault for Alexis Sanchez's goal at Arsenal, which brought the home side back into match just seconds after Liverpool took a two-goal lead. "Overall it could have been better", the former Arsenal star continued. Oxlade-Chamberlain added a fifth four good measure, his fairly muted celebration in front of the Kop demonstrating how routine and unexpected the goalscoring had become.

"I just want more out of myself".
