Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal: Roberto Firmino hits hat-trick as Liverpool embarrass Arsenal

Roberto Firmino hit a hat trick when Liverpool beat Arsenal 5 – 1 in the Premier League in Anfield to open up a lead of nine points at the top of the table.

As a result, Liverpool reaches 54 points, nine clear from Tottenham and ten clear from defending champions Manchester City, who play Southampton on Sunday.

The Gunners started brightly and led through Ainsley Maitland – Niles, who snucked in at the far post to slot the center of Alex Iwobi 11 minutes gone, but Unai Emery ‘s men were only five minutes behind after Firmino struck a fast-fire double, the second of which was a stunning solo strike.

The goals of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah sent the home side to the half-time with a lead of 4-1 and the misery of the Gunners was over when Firmino finished his hat trick from the penalty point after Sead Kolasinac fouled Dejan Lovren.
