Arsenal vs Liverpool Live Score

A dominant first-half performance and some comical defending from Liverpool saw Arsenal claim a vital 3-1 victory at the Emirates, cutting the gap on the ten-man Merseysiders to just two points in the Premier League title race.

The match, billed as a ‘must-not-lose’ for the Gunners, lived up to the hype with Arsenal dictating much of the first half. Bukayo Saka opened the scoring on 14 minutes, capitalizing on a superb save from Alisson Becker to deny Kai Havertz. However, just before the break, a calamitous error from Gabriel saw him deflect Luis Diaz’s pass into his own net, restoring parity for Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s men emerged stronger in the second half, but it was Arsenal who retook the lead on 67 minutes. Gabriel Martinelli’s persistence earned him a golden opportunity as a shocking miscommunication between Alisson and Virgil van Dijk allowed him to slot the ball home.

Liverpool’s frustrations grew further when Ibrahima Konate received a second yellow card two minutes from time. Substitute Leandro Trossard then added insult to injury, somehow squeezing a third goal past Alisson in stoppage time.

The result propels Arsenal into second place, just two points behind Liverpool with 23 games played. Manchester City remain in the hunt, sitting three points adrift but with two games in hand.
