Liverpool Confirmed lineup vs Arsenal: Fabinho in for Henderson

Jurgen-Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will sanction a January exit for Nathaniel Clyne

A 5-1 win over Arsenal extended their lead at the top to nine points from Tottenham, although third-placed City have a chance to reduce that to seven if they win at Southampton on Sunday.

Liverpool capped off a sensational 2018 with a brilliant 5-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield - here are five things we loved in the final game of the year...

Lichtsteiner has been deputising for the injured Hector Bellerin at right-back in recent weeks and the experienced defender once again lined-up alongside the likes of Sokratis, Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac for Arsenal against Liverpool last night.

"But in the second half we started to feel maybe the game was over, and when you feel the game is over you start to play the way you play, start to decide the wrong way, start to play too many long balls and then was hard to recover the balls".

Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri hopes Roberto Firmino can build on his "fully deserved" hat-trick against Arsenal in the Premier League.

He was prescribed amoxicillin and ibuprofen, and taken with his father to a holding facility at a highway checkpoint. In Felipe's case, that seems to be the ultimate answer to why he wound up 1,000 miles from home, worn out, and sick.

Only 2 minutes later, the Brazilian striker then made 2-1 with an incredible individual effort.

With the new summer signings, Klopp was investing in players that could help turn Liverpool into an unstoppable force and he has successfully done just that. I don't think there's a better team in Europe in those circumstances.

Arsenal was apparently in ruins when Emery took charge, and he has done a decent job to keep them in contention for a top four spot. "We haven't conceded too many goals this season, especially the first one, so you don't know what the reaction would be".

The host has a shocked look on his face as Wright comes back to his seat.

Klopp said: "Fabinho hit two very average passes and he was shaky in the next couple of moments".

A third game will also be played with the San Siro's "curva" section - the part of the ground popular with Inter's "ultras" - closed.

Liverpool hadn't been given a Premier League penalty at Anfield for 424 days before Salah was brought down against Newcastle in midweek but were given another two against Arsenal, making it three in two games!

It was fantastic to see both buried - the Reds' record from the spot last season was far from impressive - but the main talking point has to be the build up to the first.

After Sadio Mane dispossessed Lucas Torreira in the middle of the park, Firmino picked up the ball and promptly danced through the Gunners backline before slamming home past Bernd Leno.

Liverpool now travel to Manchester City in a blockbuster clash on Thursday night.

That is the making of Champions, never mind any of the other factors, to be able to consistently take advantage of the moments when your rivals slip is the one thing that wins you titles.

Congress leader Randeep Surjewala has also denied the ban, terming it propaganda by BJP, the ruling party at the Centre. BJP said it was a "riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years".
