Liverpool scored four goals in 20 minutes.
Liverpool FC were in devastating form Saturday afternoon at Anfield as they romped to a 5-1 win over table toppers Arsenal.
The Reds hit in four goals inside 20 minutes of Saturday’s early EPL kick-off to make life miserable for the Gunners who thought they could get something from the away tie.
The early 4-0 lead is the fastest ever for Liverpool in their EPL history.
Liverpool’s goal feast started off from an unlikely source when Martin Skrtel hammered home a Stephen Gerrard free kick inside the first minute.
The Slovak defender made it 2-0 minutes later with a tremendously-placed header.
Before Arsene Wenger’s men knew what hit them, Raheem Sterling added another goal for Liverpool to make the scoreline 3-0 with just 16 minutes on the clock.
Daniel Sturridge after earlier misses made it 4-0 for Liverpool four minutes later as Arsenal’s defence continue to ship in the goals.
The first half ended 4-0.
Liverpool did not take their feet off the pedal as they registered their 5th goal early in the second by Sterling and at that point Gunners fans were seen flocking to the exits as they could no longer stand the humiliation.
Arsenal did pull one goal back from the penalty spot through Mikel Arteta but it was like a drop in the ocean with little or no bearing on the Week 25 tie.
With the win, Liverpool stay on 4th spot with 50 points while Arsenal would exit the top spot if Chelsea and Manchester City win later on Saturday.
