An astonishing collapse right after kick-off saw Arsenal go 4-0 down within the opening 20 minutes as Liverpool went on to thrash the Gunners 5-1 at Anfield.

This was a big game for both sides but only one side appeared to be up for it as Martin Skrtel scored twice from set-pieces in the opening 10 minutes to put the hosts in firm control. And more goals from Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge had Arsenal well beaten even before we had reached 20 minutes on the clock.

Sterling made it 5-0 early in the second half to finish off the riot before Mikel Arteta scored from a penalty earned by Arsenal’s solitary performer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to salvage the tiniest of consolations.
