Shaqiri hoping for more from hat-trick hero Firmino

What a way to cap off 2018 eh Reds?!

Having conceded just eight goals so far, Klopp's side truly look like a force to be reckoned with, and their convincing win over Unai Emery's Arsenal has certainly cemented their status as title favourites.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah ensured a rampant Liverpool went into the break 4-1 up.

Let's crack into the game.

Only 2 minutes later, the Brazilian striker then made 2-1 with an wonderful individual effort.

All three of Liverpool's frontline deserve honourable mentions, but Firmino was the standout for his link-up play, clever off-the-ball movement and three goals - the second of which being brilliant.

"It is unbelievable, he did not respect me, the club, the team and crowd".

The Gunners simply couldn't live with Liverpool's intensity and speed of the play, and despite their record of producing strong second-half displays this season, they failed to breach the Reds' defence again. "We stayed calm and really forced the mistakes". Klopp opted to go with Shaqiri, Fabinho, and Wijnaldum in the midfield, since James Milner was injured.

Speaking about the win over Palace, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said: 'I think we played against a risky opponent.

We got our answer in emphatic fashion.

But the response from the capacity Anfield crowd suggests it will be hard for the manager to temper expectations among them of a first Liverpool title in 29 years.

"The two last goals, two penalties, I think it's a lot for us".

Within five minutes, Liverpool had equalized and taken the lead. Just see it [the result] and then go on.

Salah had already scored from the spot at Anfield on Saturday and, therefore, passed up on the chance to score a second in the 65th minute, handing the ball to his forward partner.

Led by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, as well as a sizeable contribution from current interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United looked in control of the division all season.

The 0-0 draw at Anfield aside, City have dropped points on four other occasions this season, drawing 1-1 with Wolves and being beaten by Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester. 12 points to City's 1.

Liverpool are next in action on Thursday when they travel to the Etihad Stadium, where they can extend their lead over the reigning champions even further.

When rivals falter, this Liverpool side just carries on.

"The only thing that has changed is that you all ask about it, that's all".

"These two want to make things happen and at times they switch off".

Come on you Redmen!
