Arsenal v Liverpool
Barclays Premier League
Kick off: November 2, 2013 5:30 PM BST
Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla may hog the headlines for their fantastic strikes, but it is the defence and Mikel Arteta who can be praised for an outstanding display against Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Arsenal returned to winning ways in spectacular fashion, seeing off Liverpool with two sublime strikes that sees Arsene Wenger’s men stretch their lead at the top of the table to five points.
As we discussed at allarsenal.com prior to kick-off, Mathieu Flamini’s absence had a silver lining – the return of the fruitful Arteta-Ramsey partnership that bode so well for the Gunners last season. The duo put in a fantastic performance, and provided much of the inspiration for Arsenal’s win at Emirates.
Chelsea’s blip earlier in the day only helped to spur on the Gunners to extend the gap at the top, but the hard work is only just beginning with Dortmund in mid-week prior to a tough trip to Old Trafford. COYG!
