In the second half, Kiwor came in for Zinchenko and the Police left back did not disappoint as he defended well much to the delight of Arsenal fans.
Martinelli who was always pilling pressure upfront was rewarded in the 67th minute when a defensive blunder involving Van Dijk and Allison left behind the ball which was quickly converted for the second of the evening.
Konate who was already on a yellow card picked his second and first red card of the clash after bringing down Kai Havertz who had initiated a counter attack. His absence weakened Liverpool’s attack.
In extra time, Trossard who came in for Martinelli cleverly rounded Elliot before speeding off in the far left side. Once at the box, he calmly sent the ball past the goalkeeper’s legs for the third of the evening.
The win takes Arsenal second in the table, two points behind Liverpool and three above Manchester City who have two games on hand.
