  • EPL Iwobi Stars Grabs Assist In Arsenal Defeat To Liverpool

Liverpool extended their lead at the top of the table to nine points following the win, while Arsenal remain in fifth position.

He is definitely a player to watch out for in tonight's clash at Anfield and the Gunners must be ready to keep an eye on him just as they would do to Salah, Mane and Firmino.

Jurgen Klopp has said Mohamed Salah letting Roberto Firmino take a penalty kick to secure a hat trick in Liverpool's 5-1 victory over Arsenal was one of the nicest gestures he has seen in his life.

A wonderful moment of individual skill from Kane put Spurs on course for a sixth straight league when he cut inside onto his weaker left foot, but still produced a powerful drive from 20 yards that beat Rui Patricio midway through the first half.

City are the defending league champions and were the strong title favourites until a recent winter wobble, which means Liverpool will still hold a healthy points advantage even if they suffer their first top-flight defeat of the season to Pep Guardiola's men.

"I understand it, but if you give me a better solution, and can convince me to think about it - but not for two results, or three, or four, five, or six, or seven".

Liverpool are nine points clear of second-placed Tottenham, who were stunned 3-1 at home by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"It's not important how many points you are ahead in December - even if it's the end of December".

"But Liverpool played real football and credit to their manager, they've been outstanding so far this season".

"We have a lot of work to do, defensively also, we know we need to get better", Emery said.

His first goal was fortuitous to say the least but was typical Firmino, the Reds no.9 sensing an opportunity, carrying on his run to pounce on a loose ball and tapping it in from close range with the return of his trademark no-look finish.

'That was the big point for us to change the game and to win in the end'.

"I know we made a mistake but there were mistakes in the West Ham game, when we won 4-0". "We spoke in the dressing room - it's another experience for us".

"Anything is possible. We are in a good way, it's tough but it's a great time to be a Liverpool player".

"When you are running a marathon with new trainers and a new shirt, everyone around you says it's fantastic but you're the one who has to run".

Speaking on BT Sport immediately after the game, Keown said: "Thoroughly disappointing [from Arsenal]". In the moment, it is a marathon that we are running, that we are part of.
