The Reds run out comfortable winners as a brace from Jota and a further strike from Salah mean the Reds travel back north with all three points.
Arsenal offered very little throughout and struggled to find any sort of rhythm against a much-improved Liverpool side.
The Portugal star is becoming the go-to man for Liverpool, and he delivered again at the Emirates on Saturday, scoring twice off the substitutes’ bench to hand the Reds a vital 3-0 win over a subdued, overmatched Arsenal.
They built on it soon enough, and in fine style too. Four minutes later, Fabinho sent a pass in behind Gabriel for Mo Salah, who wriggled free of the Brazilian defender before slipping the ball through Leno’s legs for 2-0.
That’s 26 goals in all competitions for the Egyptian, whose persistence and bloody-mindedness never fails to impress. This was his 150th Premier League game, and his 93rd goal.
Liverpool were the better side from the word go, albeit against an Arsenal team devoid of ambition and threat, and they would extend their advantage further through Jota before the night was out.
Next up for both sides are huge European clashes in mid-week. Liverpool travel to Spain to face Real Madrid on Tuesday night in the quarter-finals of the Champions League whilst Arsenal host Slavia Prague in the quarter-finals of the Europa League on Thursday.
