Liverpool returned to their brilliant best as they thrashed Arsenal 3-0 and move into fifth place in the Premier League on Saturday with substitute Diogo Jota netting twice.
Jota headed a dominant Liverpool in front from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross in the 64th minute, three minutes after coming on.
Mohamed Salah doubled Liverpool’s lead four minutes later before Jota scored from close range in the 81st minute.
Victory moved Liverpool above Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United and left them only two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea who were thrashed at home by West Bromwich Albion earlier, blowing the top-four battle wide open.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds now have 49 points from 30 games with Arsenal down in ninth place with 42 points after a 12th defeat of the season.
