At the start of the game, Liverpool had a little chance with Jota running to the Arsenal box, but it led nowhere. After that, Arsenal showed intensity as they pressed Liverpool. It was similar to the FA Cup game a few weeks ago, where Liverpool struggled to play out from the back due to the Arsenal press.

Liverpool started to get more possession of the ball, but they almost conceded first. After a failed attack from Liverpool, Arsenal countered, and Saka missed a great chance with a bad header in the box. Martinelli used his pace to create that chance, but Saka wasn’t able to head the ball on target.

Cody Gakpo would get a great chance to score as he shoots from the right side and just goes wide past the left post. Mac Allister gave a perfect ball to the Dutch player.

In the 13th minute, the Arsenal opener arrived. Odegaard plays a beautiful pass to Havertz in the middle of the pitch, who shoots at Alisson, but the rebound falls to Saka. Saka scores from the rebound and gives Arsenal the lead. Arsenal has taken the lead in their four Premier League games against Liverpool. Saka has 15 goal contributions for Arsenal this season, which is more than double any other Arsenal player.
