The matchday 23 of the Premier League concludes at the Emirates Stadium with a 3-1 victory for Arsenal. A hard-fought match in which the Gunners moved closer to the leadership of the national competition, leaving Liverpool still at the top of the table. In fact, the first few minutes were a constant back-and-forth affair, with both sides looking for precision in quick passing and space-seeking moves. Finally, after a very fast but well-constructed move, Saka scored in the 14th minute after a rebound in the area from Alisson's one-on-one save from Havertz, putting the Londoners ahead.

After much tension, Liverpool scored in first-half stoppage time after a miscommunication in the home backline that Luis Diaz persisted with until Gabriel Magalhães accidentally put through his own net. The visitors started the second half on the attack looking for threats down the left side with Jones, Luis Diaz and company; although little by little Arsenal managed to make their attacking surge felt by getting into Alisson Becker's box.

After Arsenal's mistake in the first half, Liverpool equalized with a misunderstanding between van Dijk and the Brazilian goalkeeper, which Martinelli took advantage of to give his side the lead in the 67th minute. The minutes passed and the west of England continued to look for an equalizer against the Gunners, who were doing damage with counterattacks on goal. The match finally took a turn for the worse when Konaté was sent off for a double yellow card after a clash with Havertz. In the 91st minute, Trossard scored the definitive goal to seal Arsenal's important victory against a Liverpool side that was outplayed during the match.

Endo returns

After the game, it was reported that Jurgen Klopp was considering bringing Wataru Endo back for Saturday's game against Burnley after finishing his participation in the Asian Cup and would take the place of Dutchman Ryan Gravenberch who did not have a good game against Arsenal.
