Arsenal – Liverpool: the Gunners win a crazy game and remain in the lead ahead of Manchester City

Arsenal does not stop anymore. This Sunday evening the Gunners beat Liverpool (3-2), during the tenth day of the Premier League. At the Emirates Stadium, Gabriel Martinelli had established the entry stage (1st), before Bukayo Saka’s brace (45th + 5, 76th sp). As for the Reds, they had drawn twice, thanks to Darwin Nunez (34th) then Roberto Firmino (53rd). In the end it wasn’t enough. In the English championship standings, Jürgen Klopp’s men are tenth, fourteen points behind the opponents of the day, who regain the first position.

At the age of 21 years and 34 days, Bukayo Saka is the second youngest player to reach 20 Premier League goals for Arsenal, after only Nicolas Anelka (20 years and 41 days). The young Gunner therefore contributed greatly to this sensational victory for his family, allowing them, every time, to take control of the scoreboard. First just before the break, victoriously recovering, at the far post, a center by Gabriel Martinelli, after a splendid counterattack (45 ‘+ 5, 2-1). Then, a quarter of an hour from the end, Saka does not tremble, converting a penalty (76 °, 3-2).

Martinelli scored after 58 seconds

Shortly before the panic of the Reds had allowed him, then Gabriel Jesus to try his luck, but Alisson had been vigilant (73rd). Just like before Jesus (28th), then against Martin Odegaard (50th). Before Saka, it was Martinelli who had already donned the striker’s costume. Now he is also the youngest Arsenal player to score and assist against Liverpool in the Premier League (21 years and 113 days). The Brazilian has also been directly involved in 10 goals in his last 14 appearances in the competition (5 goals, 5 assists).

It was clearly not necessary to arrive late in the London compound. Because from the first Arsenal attack, the Brazilian went to fool Alisson (1st, 1-0). Gabriel Martinelli’s goal after 58 seconds is Arsenal’s fastest in a Premier League home game since October 2011 (Robin van Persie, 29 seconds v Sunderland). It is also the fastest goal Arsenal has ever scored against Liverpool in the top flight.

Nunez finds the way of the nets

The Reds, however, had the arguments and also found the resources to equalize twice. Mute since August 6, Darwin Nunez, who had already warmed up Aaron Ramsdale’s gloves for the first time (26th), ended up finding his way back to nets (34th, 1-1). A goal from a cross by Luis Diaz. The Colombian then had to leave due to injury, just before the interval (42nd). His replacement, Roberto Firmino, his team’s top scorer in the league (six goals), immediately made himself noticed. At the beginning of the second half, he is the one to draw the two teams again (53rd, 2-2).

But that wasn’t enough to save Liverpool from their second Premier League defeat of the season. The Reds have only won twice in the top flight, but more since August 31. As for Arsenal, the story continues, with this eighth win in nine games. Mikel Arteta’s men can keep dreaming.
