Just brilliant: Mohamed Salah

As is often expected from these two sides, Arsenal and Liverpool produced another game of end-to-end football that's only given us a tease of what this Festive season holds.

Liverpool started the game in style thanks to a lovely header from Philippe Coutinho in the first half. Mohamed Salah added another in the second before Arsenal scored three from Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil. Roberto Firmino scored another deep in the second half.

Two halves of terrible defending, brilliant attacking and non-existent midfield-ing pretty much sum up the game but here are five things we learnt nonetheless.
