Arsenal stay alive - but this is now Man City's Premier League title to lose: Winners and losers as the Gunners take down Liverpool on a dark day for defending

Jurgen Klopp's final visit to the Emirates Stadium as Liverpool boss was not a happy one, with Arsenal securing a deserved 3-1 victory on Sunday in a game where both defences endured nightmarish moments.

The Reds headed into proceedings with all the momentum of a runaway freight train, but simply never got going, and it was little surprise when Bukayo Saka opened the scoring early in the first half, snatching up the rebound following a poor miss from Kai Havertz. In fact, the only time Liverpool could score was when Gabriel gifted them a comedy own goal on the stroke of half time.

The Reds soon returned the favour, though, with Virgil van Dijk and Alisson's ridiculous mix-up allowing Gabriel Martinelli to put the hosts back in front.
