Arsenal beat Liverpool 3-2 and are now back on top of the league table

LONDON: Liverpool came back twice from being down a goal, but Arsenal won 3-2 thanks to two goals from Bukayo Saka and moved back to the top of the Premier League table on Sunday.

Gabriel Martinelli gave the Gunners the lead with a goal in the first minute. This set the tone for a very exciting game.

Darwin Nunez got Liverpool back on track in the middle of the half, but deep into first-half stoppage time, Bukayo Saka put Arsenal back in front after a quick counterattack. At the Emirates, Arsenal was ahead 2-1 when the teams took a break.

Roberto Firmino, who often plays against Liverpool, tied the score again, but Saka scored from the penalty spot after Gabriel Jesus was fouled to give Arsenal a huge three points and send them back to the top of the Premier League.

Arsenal scored with just 58 seconds left on the clock. William Saliba stole the ball from them in the middle of their own half, which started an attack against them. The Gunners had too many players on the left side of Liverpool's field. Martin Odegaard passed the ball to Martinelli, who beat the offside trap to put the ball in the back of the net.

Arsenal kept putting pressure on, and Granit Xhaka had a shot blocked, but he was called offside anyway. After good work by Bukayo Saka, Martinelli then missed a cross.

At the other end, Aaron Ramsdale was quick to block a shot by Darwin Nunez and jumped to his left to keep the ball out when Saliba turned a cross toward his own goal. But Liverpool soon tied it up. Gabriel didn't try hard enough when he tried to clear the ball, so it went to Luis Diaz, who passed it to Nunez, who scored.
But Arsenal didn't finish as well as they did at the beginning. Their second goal came from a Liverpool free kick that was cleared to the edge of the box. They then went on a fast attack upfield.

Jesus won the ball and passed it to Martinelli, who was running down the left side of the field. Martinelli's low cross went all the way to the far post, where Saka was sliding in to put the ball in.

In the second half, Arsenal had the upper hand. The lively Martinelli gave captain Odegaard a great chance in the box, but his low shot was easy for Alisson to save.

The Gunners' carelessness cost them when substitute Roberto Firmino got past their defence and put a good low shot into the corner.
