Match Review: Liverpool 5 Arsenal 1 - Premier League 08.02.14

If you’re looking for positivity, you will not find much here. Arsenal were put to the sword at Anfield in painful and ruthless style. 20 first half minutes were all Liverpool required to decimate an Arsenal side that had no fight, no passion and left Anfield with their tails between their legs.

Yet it’s not the beginning of the apocalypse, as many seem to feel. We’re coming off the back of seven wins, a slip was never going to be far away and remember Man City, the great and powerful titans of world football, only achieved a point at St Mary’s too.
