Liverpool waltzed to victory against Arsenal on Monday night. The Reds were in command throughout the game as they brushed their opposition aside. It was a swaggering performance from a team on top of their game, made all the sweeter by a Premier League debut strike. Liverpool fans have been drooling over the Diogo Jota goal.
Waltz to victory
Arsenal had the audacity to take the lead at Anfield.
The Gooners went ahead when Alexandre Lacazette scuffed one past Alisson after Andy Robbo mistakenly put the Frenchman through on goal.
The Reds responded quickly, levelling a few minutes later after Sadio Mane tapped home following great work from Mo Salah.
Robbo atoned for his error shortly after, lifting the ball over Bernd Leno following a superlative Trent Alexander-Arnold cross.
A Diogo Jota goal moments from the end rounded off the scoring and finally killed the game.
Diogo Jota goal
Liverpool signed Diogo Jota from Wolves a day after the arrival of Thiago Alcantara.
The Portuguese arrival took many of us by surprise given that there had been no links throughout the summer.
He has already hit the ground running with Diogo Jota grabbing a goal on his Premier League debut for the Reds.
It was a well taken strike just a couple of minutes from the end, a goal which thoroughly put the game to bed.
The forward was praised for his positioning in the game.
Reckon Diogo Jota will be one of those attackers that have the ability to be in the right place at the right time, every time. An ideal impact player. Grafter off the ball, too.

He drew comparisons to an Anfield great.
Little bit of Fowler about him, a little bit will do 👌

His addition is ‘scary’ according to one supporter.
Dominant performance by Liverpool. Mane incredible. Lots of other top performers. The best Liverpool display of 2020. Klopp has turned this squad into a well oiled machine. Jota added to this front three is scary. The champions march on with Arsenal and Chelsea already played.

Haven’t we seen this one before?
If I remember correctly we have another right winger who put one past Arsenal on the club PL debut 🤔 pic.twitter.com/i1hvQ2u1uV

Only one of them has scored in the league this season, that’s all we’re saying.
