Arsenal came back from a goal down to beat Liverpool 2-1 and end their hopes of braking Premier League’s record points tally. The defeat was Liverpool’s third this season and dashed any chances of equalling Man City’s record 100 points tally in a single Premier League campaign. The visitors started well and went ahead inside the opening 20 minutes when Sadio Mane scored from an Andy Robertson’s low cross. But Virgil van Dijk and goalkeeper Alisson Becker’s errors in the first half gave Arsenal a chance to get back into the game and the Gunners were ruthless in their finishing.

The hosts scored from both the chances they were gifted in the first half and took the lead. Alexandre Lacazette scored the opening goal for them after intercepting lousy back pass to the goalkeeper. While Reiss Nelson scored the second after Lacazette found him open inside the Liverpool box having caught the Liverpool defence off guard.

Liverpool dominated the second half and came close to equalising several times on the day but failed to find the net. The defeat was their third in 36 Premier League games and ended all dreams of recording the highest points tally as well the most number of wins in a single Premier League campaign.
