Mohamed Salah, Thomas Partey and Edward Nketiah put up interesting performances as Liverpool bowed 3-2 to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal extended their winning streak to five in all competitions after defeating Liverpool 3-2 in Sunday’s Premier League thriller.

Gabriel Martinelli drew first blood in the first minute after he was set up by Martin Odegaard.

The Reds restored parity courtesy of Darwin Nunez in the 34th minute.

In the goal-laden first half, the Gunners took the lead from Bukayo Saka on the stroke off half time.

Saka completed his brace with 14 minutes left on the clock after drilling home from the penalty mark.
