The Merseyside club created several goal scoring chances in a first half which they largely controlled, pouncing on what was an inexperienced Arsenal back line. Christian Benteke and Philippe Coutinho came particularly close to breaking the deadlock.
In the second 45 minutes the Merseyside club sat deeper, soaking up a lot of pressure from their North London rivals. All round, it was an accomplished away performance from Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Here is how their players rated…
GK) Simon Mignolet, 8
Several good saves in the second half to stop the Gunners from taking the lead.
LB) Joe Gomez, 8
Another impressive showing from the 18-year-old, who is fast becoming one of the best young players in the league.
RB) Nathaniel Clyne, 7
Kept Alexis Sanchez fairly quiet throughout the encounter, and also put some dangerous crosses in for Christian Benteke in to the box.
CB) Dejan Lovren, 7
Solid again from the former Southampton man, and he is slowly rebuilding his reputation at Anfield.
CB) Martin Skrtel, 8
Olivier Giroud was largely peripheral in the match, thanks to the 30-year-old.
