Liverpool claim comeback win against Arsenal


Liverpool rallied from a goal down to beat Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League at Anfield on Monday night.

Arsenal took the lead in the 25th minute when Alexandre Lacazette pounced on a poor clearance by Andrew Robertson and beat Alisson to make it 1-0.

Minutes later, Liverpool were back on level terms, though, as Sadio Mane tapped home from close range after Bernd Leno parried a Mohamed Salah shot into his teammate’s path.

Robertson made amends for his earlier mistake with a goal to put Liverpool ahead at the break, settling a lovely cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold with his chest and clipping the ball past Leno for the 2-1 lead.

Lacazette saw a golden opportunity to draw level just past the hour mark, but Alisson stood tall at the top of his penalty area to deny the Frenchman after he’d broken in on goal.

With full-time approaching, new arrival Diogo Jota marked his Premier League debut with a classy finish, controlling a short Arsenal clearance at the top of the area and nailing a low volley into the net to secure the three points.

The two sides meet again on Thursday in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup (stream live on ESPN+ at 2:45 p.m. ET in the U.S.).
