GOAL! Liverpool 3 (Jota 88) Arsenal 1
It's a debut goal for Jota, and all three points for Liverpool! Alexander-Arnold whips a nice cross into the area, which Luiz can only head out to Jota on the edge of the area. Jota controls it with his chest and then guides a shot just inside the post with Leno rooted.
Liverpool make an absolute mess of a break and should be 3-1 up. Salah finds Wijnaldum in space on the right, and he squares it first time to Jota in the area. Jota chests it down but just as he's about to shoot Salah runs across his line and in the confusion, Arsenal clear.
Arsenal win another corner. Pepe takes it again, and plugs it low into the first man again. I don't think he'll be taking the next corner.
CHANCE! Salah has been quiet this half, but this is sensational; he cuts right across the face of the area and angles a lovely ball in to Jota, who has a clear look at Leno and the goal. He shoots, but can only locate the side-netting.
Heart in mouth stuff from both Holding and Leno as they play it around precariously six yards from their own goal. It's always so close to going wrong, and it looks inevitable that it will in a big way. When Liverpool eventually get the ball back Jota has a yahoo at hitting the top corner, but misses by a distance.
A double change for Liverpool. Mane and Keita are off and James Milner and Diogo Jota come on, the latter for his Liverpool debut.
Arsenal win a corner after forcing Robertson to put the ball behind. It's a miserable one from Pepe though, who doesn't even get it off the floor as he hits the man at the front post and it's cleared.
Ceballos slides a ball through the defence again, this time to Nketiah, but Alisson is out to clear the ball. I think he was offside anyway, but Ceballos has made a real difference here. Liverpool break to the other end, and Firmino's shot from wide on the right is deflected behind for a corner.
The final change for Arsenal as Eddie Nketiah replaces Lacazette.
PlayStation football from Arsenal at the back again, and they cough it up near the left touchline. Mane eventually barrels through two challenges and tries an ostentatious curler to the far post, but Leno holds it comfortably.
A change for Arsenal as Nicolas Pepe replaces Willian.
Bellerin is booked for hauling down Mane.
Liverpool have got a free kick in a nice position, 35 yards out and to the left. Robertson can only hit the first man though, and Arsenal clear.
CHANCE! Liverpool respond immediately, cutting through the heart of Arsenal's defence with a barrage of quick passes and finding Mane near the penalty spot. He spins and shoots, but scuffs the ball a yard wide of the post.
OH WHAT A CHANCE! Ceballos finds Lacazette with a slide rule ball that dissects the entire Liverpool midfield and back four. He's one on one and central, but can only bang his shot straight into the midriff of Alisson. It's a good save, but it should be 2-2.
Van Dijk has a crack from 25 yards. It's straight at Leno but bounces awkwardly, and he does well to palm the ball away to safety.
A change for Arsenal as Dani Ceballos replaces Xhaka.
