  • The referee blows his whistle for full-time and Arsenal have notched an impressive 2-0 victory over Liverpool thanks to goals from Cazorla and Ramsey. The result opens up a five-point lead at the top of the table and leaves Liverpool third.

  • Jenkinson is shown a yellow card for a foul in midfield which halts a Liverpool move.

  • Ozil has a chance to add a third for Arsenal but his shot from a tight angle fails to beat Mignolet.

  • Liverpool almost grab a lifeline as Suarez is presented with a glorious chance for the first time, but he misses the target with a low shot wide of Szczesny's left-hand post from the edge of the area with just the keeper to beat.

  • Szczesny looks full of confidence these days and he takes control of his area with a great catch from Henderson's cross.

  • Liverpool are enjoying the majority of possession at the moment as Arsenal sit back and focus on protecting their lead.

  • Arsenal's third and final change sees Jenkinson come on for Cazorla as Wenger shores things up for the closing stages.

  • Szczesny sprints off his line and out to his right on two occasions in quick succession, making himself big to save from Sturridge and then Coutinho.

  • Cazorla tries to catch out Liverpool's defence with a long diagonal pass but Mignolet is out quickly to claim the ball.

  • Gibbs is unable to continue and Vermaelen comes on to fill in at left-back, with Monreal staying ahead of him.

  • Gibbs has to receive treatment after picking up a knock and Arsenal's players are furious that Liverpool waited so long to kick the ball out of play.

  • Ozil has been quietly impressive rather than the star of the show today but he nearly pops up with a goal as his low shot from inside the area is well held down to his right by Mignolet.

  • Coutinho's cross from the left reaches Sturridge at the far post but it is Suarez who takes the ball on and hits a powerful shot from the narrowest of angles which fizzes across goal and just wide.

  • Suarez delivers a free-kick from deep towards the back post which Sakho wins and it comes off an Arsenal player to go out for a corner.

  • Wenger decides to shuffle his pack for the first time and bring on the more defensive-minded Monreal for Rosicky.

  • Coutinho's passing again lets him down as he plays it straight into Szczesny's arms from out wide on the left when he must have meant to cut it back.

  • Coutinho's passing again lets him down as he plays it straight into Szczesny's arms from out wide on the left when he must have meant to cut it back.

  • Ramsey makes a great run but Rosicky's pass is just too heavy and allows Henderson to get the ball back to his goalkeeper.

  • Liverpool make their second change of the game as Flanagan is replaced by Moses.

  • Flanagan gets forward well down the right but his disappointing cross is comfortably dealt with by the Arsenal defence.
