EPL: Liverpool vs Gunners



Arsenal had a perfect start from the start of the season when they had a total win including defeating Liverpool in the English Super Cup match. In this third round, they played the latest match of the round with defending champions Liverpool and whether in this rematch, will The Kop successfully claim the debt before representing North London

Liverpool's first four goals were all scored from outside the box and Lincoln City manager Appleton was helpless to do more to stop them. Tomorrow star Curtis Jones stole the spotlight from rookie Diogo Jota's debut with two goals and a lead role in a 7-2 Carabao Cup win over League One Lincoln. Jota, signed from Wolves for £ 41m on Saturday, made his first appearance with 33 minutes in the second half but the 19-year-old from Toxteth made the most streaks on Lincoln's side. Jones scored a third and fourth for Liverpool before the end of the first half, both turning the ball from the left flank for a right-footed shot, and was the main creative force for the visitors in midfield.

Reiss Nelson, recently on loan from Arsenal, got off to a good start and came close to the opener, forcing Danny Ward to make a brilliant save in Leicester's goal. On the other end, Bernd Leno kept his place despite signing Iceland international Alex Runarsson and he also did a great job of stopping Kelechi Iheanacho from giving the home side the lead. Arsenal then enjoyed an overwhelming time, Pepe should have done better when he was selected inside the box but tried to cut his face instead of shooting and the danger was relieved. Nelson then passed a wonderful opportunity of his own when he shot long in a favorable position, while Bukayo Saka was denied a penalty after being cut down by Daniel Amartey. The second half began slowly as torrential rain began to pour down the King Power Stadium as Arsenal took the lead in random situations. Pepe was ineffective but he did a great job of hitting the post with a cross and Fuchs' own goal. Nketiah, sent off when the two teams met in the tournament at the end of last season, was close to settling the game as he drove the ball towards goal but Wes Morgan headed off the line. Nketiah then fixed the result as he scored in stoppage time. Arsenal will have two trips as visitors to Anfield next week, with the next round 4 match following this Premier League meeting.
