In the 63rd minute of this evening’s Premier League tie between Arsenal and Liverpool, Mohamed Salah knocked the ball out to Trent Alexander-Arnold on the wing.
The right-back punished the relatively large space left as a result of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being his marker as he floated a dangerous cross into the box.
It found its way to the far post after Rob Holding couldn’t reach the ball with a header attempt. Diogo Jota punished the Gunners as he occupied the space between Holding and Calum Chambers.
The Portuguese star steered the ball into the back of the net with a powerful header, which actually resulted in Chambers receiving medical treatment.

Liverpool thoroughly deserve to be in the lead, Jurgen Klopp’s men have been the much better side in a respectfully dull encounter until now.
