The Gunners took the lead through Ainsley Maitland-Niles 11 minutes in, but it was short lived as Jurgen Klopp's team went on to score four by half time to go nine points clear atop the table.

Moreno aired his frustration in an interview on Spanish radio having made only two Premier League appearances and featured once off the bench in the UEFA Champions League this season.

"I think we started well with the first goal and then they had the difference with attacking moments, determination and quality".

Manchester City are in action against Southampton on Sunday and a win would move them into second place ahead of Spurs.

Klopp, though, kept his feet firmly on the ground especially with a potentially title-defining clash away at Manchester City on Thursday. We can't play that game and we won't do it.

Between all the players' individual styles and the motivation of the German coach, Liverpool has become a machine that has only conceded eight goals in the past 20 matches in the league. "I didn't see a smile on any faces in the dressing room".

Liverpool have benefited from the arrivals of players including Alisson and Virgil van Dijk this year, with defender Dejan Lovren hailing new arrivals as key to their title charge.

"Will he be fit enough to deal with [Mo] Salah, [Sadio] Mane and [Roberto] Firmino?"

Salah's blocked shot rebounded to Stephan Lichtsteiner, whose panicked clearance bounced back off team-mate Shkodran Mustafi into the path of Firmino who converted from close range with a trademark "no-look" shot.

However, the Brazilian did all the hard work himself two minutes later by jinking through Arsenal's hapless central defensive pairing before drilling low past Bernd Leno.

However, any hopes Unai Emery's side had of inflicting a first league defeat for Liverpool were soon dispelled, with Roberto Firmino netting a quick-fire brace between 14 and 16 minutes.

Mane made it three in the 32nd minute after the Gunners kept Salah onside in the second phase after a corner. The Egyptian global blasted home the resulting spot kick for 4-1 at the break. He gives the ball to Bobby and he can score a hat trick.

"I nearly cried because we all know how much Mo wants to score goals, " said Klopp, who described the gesture as "one of the nicest things I have seen in my life".
