The result increased Liverpool's lead over Tottenham is nine points, but it will be cut to seven if Man City claim a win at Southampton on Sunday.

A television camera operator films as Liverpool's Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino celebrates following the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield on December 29, 2018.

It was poor defending from Arsenal, but also the sauciest of solo goals from the Liverpool No.9.

The second was simply lovely with Firmino leaving three Arsenal defenders on their backsides and sliding the ball past Bernd Leno with equal finesse.

Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri hopes Roberto Firmino can build on his "fully deserved" hat-trick against Arsenal in the Premier League. The players are expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation again.

Firmino equalised from close range after Stephan Lichtsteiner played a clearance against Shkodran Mustafi.

"It is unbelievable, he did not respect me, the club, the team and crowd". It's going to take the effort of all of them for them to end up winning this. Liverpool fell behind in the league at Anfield for the first time since December 30 previous year when Alex Iwobi crossed for Ainsley Maitland-Niles to slot home at the far post. You land a blow on us, we land three, four, or in this instance five, back.

"It is a supporters and journalists' game [talking about the points gap at the top] - and that's absolutely OK, play it", he said.

But after a slow start, Salah, Firmino and Mane are beginning to show the form they did last season in smashing a combined 91 goals.

It was fantastic to see both buried - the Reds' record from the spot last season was far from impressive - but the main talking point has to be the build up to the first.

The Frenchman ignored Ranieri´s orders to let Mitrovic take a late penalty with the scores still tied a 0-0 and saw his effort saved by Jonas Lossl.

The goalkeeper's anticipation, vision and technique allowed him to ping a volley out from his own area and launch the attack that led to Liverpool's fourth strike in first-half stoppage-time.

Liverpool are next in action on Thursday when they travel to the Etihad Stadium, where they can extend their lead over the reigning champions even further.

"Those are the kind of things that stand you in good stead with your team-mates".

Klopp said: "Fabinho hit two very average passes and he was shaky in the next couple of moments".
