  • It's all over and Liverpool have thrashed Arsenal 5-1 following a superb attacking display at Anfield today. The result no doubt thrusts Liverpool right back into the title picture while many will now question whether the Gunners have what it takes to go the distance. Arsene Wenger's men are still top ahead of the 1500 GMT kick-offs but Manchester City and Chelsea, who are both two points behind, have the chance to go above them today.

    90
  • Cissokho finds himself with the ball at his feet inside the box after a neat flurry of crisp passes, but he drags his shot just wide.

    90
  • Coutinho picks out Cissokho on the right wing but the resulting low cross into the box is cleared by Per Mertesacker.

    90
  • There are three minutes of stoppage time to be played before the final whistle sounds.

    90
  • Joe Allen heads the delivery clear before Cazorla's follow-up shot from around 20 yards out is blocked.

    89
  • Oxlade-Chamberlain's shot from distance deflects off Aly Cissokho and behind for a corner.

    88
  • Although the initial corner is cleared, shortly afterwards Ibe gathers the ball on the left before cutting inside and firing a powerful shot just over the bar.

    87
  • Sterling gets past Gibbs on the left edge of the box to get himself clean on goal but his shot is saved by Szczesny and behind for a corner.

    86
  • And on that note Suarez is now replaced by Iago Aspas.

    85
  • Strange to think Liverpool have scored five today and none have come from Suarez. That's not to say his performance has been anything short of first class.

    84
  • Cazorla's attempted clever backheel on the edge of the box is cut out before it can reach an unmarked Podolski.

    83
  • Coutinho tries to pick out Suarez's run with a threaded pass into the box but Szczesny is alert to collect.

    82
  • Skrtel is the man to clear after a scramble inside the Liverpool box threatened to lead to another Arsenal consolation.

    81
  • Moments later a wonderful one-two between Suarez and Sterling puts the Uruguayan through on goal but the offside flag - correctly raised - denies him what surely would have been a Liverpool sixth.

    80
  • Suarez has a crack on goal from the edge of the area but Szczesny is relieved to see it blocked.

    79
  • The delivery towards the far post is headed away from danger and Liverpool will look to counter once again.

    78
  • Arsenal have a corner down the left which Cazorla is in a hurry to take for some reason.

    77
  • As you might expect the pace of this game has dropped as we head towards the final stages.

    76
  • Liverpool's second change sees Gerrard going off to be replaced by Jordon Ibe. The skipper hands the captain's armband to Suarez.

    75
  • Toure is well positioned to block an effort from Rosicky outside the area as Arsenal seek another goal to take a little shine off the winning margin.
