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.

Twitter reacts

The forward was praised for his positioning in the game.

The team spirit was also praised.

Kopites are getting excited by the arrival.

He drew comparisons to an Anfield great.

His addition is ‘scary’ according to one supporter.

Haven’t we seen this one before?

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