As noted by Sky Sports, Arsenal won the game 3-1 thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard.

Arsenal were given a helping hand with their second and third goals, thanks to Alisson Becker’s poor performance. The win means that Arsenal are now two points behind Jurgen Klopp’s men, and should Manchester City win their next game, they will also be two points behind The Reds.

How did Martin Odegaard celebrate?

Following Arsenal’s emphatic win, Odegaard took his time to celebrate the moment, opting to stay out longer on the field.

The Norwegian star then took the club photographer’s camera and began shooting his own photos.

Carragher upset with Odegaard’s celebrations

While Arsenal’s fans loved the passion exuded by the club captain, Carragher wasn’t impressed. The former defender blasted Odegaard for his antics, saying he should have just gone down the tunnel after the game, The Mirror reported.

“Just get down the tunnel! You’ve won a big game, you’ve got the three points, you’re back in the title race, just get down the tunnel. I’m being serious, honestly," he said.

Arsenal’s players were criticised last season as well for over-celebrating, with Gary Neville questioning some of the player’s behaviour.

The Gunners’ star were left to rue those antics as they failed to win the league in the end.

Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker had a day to forget when his Liverpool side took on Arsenal, Sports Brief reported.

The Brazilian keeper was partly to blame for two of Arsenal's goals during their 3-1 win over Jurgen Klopp's team.

Fans took to social media to criticise the Liverpool keeper, even comparing him to Andre Onana after the game.
