The home side had the next attempt on goal, as Adam Lallana fired just over Szczesny’s bar from inside the penalty area. It took a while for the next chance to come along on 21 minutes, as Olivier Giroud headed straight at Brad Jones from an Alexis Sanchez cross.

Arsenal suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield. Liverpool made an incredible start to the game scoring four goals in the first 20 minutes of this clash.

The Gunners made a nightmare start to game and conceded the opening goal in the first minute. Steven Gerrard’s free-kick was steered into the net by Reds centre-back Martin Skrtel. On four minutes Daniel Sturridge saw an effort saved by Wojciech Szczesny.

The home side continued their fast start and on ten minutes doubled their lead. Liverpool’s young full-back John Flanagan’s shot was turned wide of the Arsenal goal by Szczesny. It was the same combination again, as a Gerrard’s corner-kick found Skrtel and the defender’s superb looping header beat Szczesny.
