The title race is getting so interesting. Liverpool beat Arsenal 0-2 at the Emirates Stadium to secure a huge three points in the Premier League title race.
It was a tough match for the Reds as Arsenal fought hard to grab at least a point that could help them to be in the top four. But Liverpool’s determination to reduce the gap with Manchester City to one point enabled them to win the match by two goals.
Diogo Jota opened the scoring for Jurgen Klopp’s side early in the second half before substitute Roberto Firmino doubled their lead just a few minutes later.
Mohamed Salah came on as a second-half substitute for the Merseysiders but endured a quiet night as the Merseysiders saw out the game efficiently to continue their push towards the title.
Arsenal, who had won their last five league games, had dominated the first half, but the game tipped decisively early in a frantic second half as Liverpool extended their own relentless winning run.
Liverpool got the opening goal in the 54th minute through Diogo Jota as he beat the goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale on the near post.
The goal from Diogo Jota gave an extra boost to the Reds, and within eight minutes, they scored the second goal. Arsenal failed to clear the ball again, and Liverpool utilised that opportunity to increase the lead. Roberto Firmino squeezed the ball past Ramsdale to make it 0-2.
The magnitude of the win was visible when Klopp celebrated the victory with the away fans. He said: “It’s really special. Coming here in our situation, and their situation, and not having a brilliant first half and then turning the game in the right direction is pretty special.
“You have to be on your toes because they are a proper threat.”
On the title race, he added: “We have had a good period. We are one point behind, but the only thing we can do is win football games. No game is easy in this incredible league, and we have to keep going.”
With 69 points, Liverpool trail Manchester City (70), with both teams now having played 29 league games. The two sides are set to play each other on April 10.
