Premier League leaders Liverpool had been second-best in the opening period with Arsenal unable to make the most of a flurry of early chances — captain Martin Odegaard coming closest as he rattled the crossbar with a powerful drive.

Liverpool improved after the break though and their 7,000 army of travelling fans were rewarded with a two late goals.

Arsenal have now lost their last three games in all competitions.

“We changed things around at halftime internally, and we came out and played football and created chances,” Alexander-Arnold said.

“There were times in the first half that we were a little bit naive … We hit the woodwork a couple of times, so we’ve had our chances, and towards the end, we put them away.”
