WATCH: Firmino’s magnificent solo goal cooks Arsenal
It was a thrilling first 16 minutes at Anfield was capped by Roberto Firmino’s outstanding solo goal, completing his brace and leading Liverpool back from an early 1-0 deficit to Arsenal.
Arsenal took a surprise lead off a Virgil van Dijk giveaway. Ainsley Maitland-Niles lost his mark and poked a seeing-eye cross from Alex Iwobi past Alisson.

But the Gunners were down one within minutes, both times due to Firmino.
The goals were not equal. His first came when a Mohamed Salah pass made several turns before the hustling Firmino was alone with the loose ball inside the six.
The second came moments later, as the Brazilian made his way through the entire Arsenal defense to beat Leno.
Sadio Mane would add a third Liverpool goal off a tremendous first touch pass from Salah, who would later win and convert a penalty.
