Powered by automated translation

Liverpool outclassed Arsenal in a 3-0 win with a brace for substitute Diogo Jota and a nutmeg from Mohamed Salah to revive their hopes of a top four Premier League finish.

Jota broke the deadlock in the 64th minute after meeting a trademark cross from right back Trent Alexander-Arnold to head past Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Four minutes later, Salah cleverly played the ball through Leno's legs as he squatted to try to block the shot.

Jota added his second and the team’s third in the 82nd with a fine close-range finish.

"It doesn’t matter if you start or come off the bench. You need to be ready to make an impact," Jota said.

It was a morale-boosting win for Liverpool and a third successive clean sheet in all competitions, lifting last season’s champions up to fifth place with 49 points, just two behind Chelsea.
