EPL Iwobi Stars Grabs Assist In Arsenal Defeat To Liverpool

The result increased Liverpool's lead over Tottenham is nine points, but it will be cut to seven if Man City claim a win at Southampton on Sunday.

Liverpool capped off a sensational 2018 with a brilliant 5-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield - here are five things we loved in the final game of the year...

- Arsenal are now without a win in their last 20 away league games against fellow "big-six" opposition (D7 L13), losing 10 of their last 12 such matches (D2).

The second of the treble was the high watermark of the game, however, as Firmino danced through a succession of tackles at speed and produced a composed slot beyond Bernd Leno.

- Roberto Firmino's hat-trick is the sixth to have been scored in fixtures between Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League - the most hat-tricks in a single fixture in Premier League history.

Despite all the hard graft still being ever-present, Roberto Firmino hasn't quite been at his best this season in front of goal as he adjusts to his new, deeper role in Klopp's 4-2-3-1.

"Anything is possible. We are in a good way, it's tough but it's a great time to be a Liverpool player".

But the Egyptian, who has made his hunger for goals quite clear during his time at Anfield, graciously gave the ball to Firmino.

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

Israeli attack near Syrian capital wounds 3 soldiers, report says
It said a number of missiles hit three targets, which it claimed are weapon depots that belong to the Lebanese Hezbollah group. But whether Tuesday night a Hezbollah delegation was indeed in Damascus at about the time of the air attack, is not confirmed.

McAteer said on LFC TV after the game: "I think Emery got it wrong today".

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. Unreal. The Brazilian even came out once and used his head, and really just dominated his area for the full ninety. "I think we started to pay for the effort in the other games".

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 Frenchman ignored Ranieri´s orders to let Mitrovic take a late penalty with the scores still tied a 0-0 and saw his effort saved by Jonas Lossl. "So far the gesture of the season".

Klopp said: "Fabinho hit two very average passes and he was shaky in the next couple of moments".

Liverpool now travel to Manchester City in a blockbuster clash on Thursday night.

Mane also joined the party, and Salah scored a penalty just before half time.

"Those are the kind of things that stand you in good stead with your team-mates".
