Arsenal beat Liverpool to open gap at the top

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsy scores his teams second goal against Liverpool

Arsenal maintained their challenge for a first trophy in nine seasons when they beat Liverpool 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to open up a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League on Saturday.

A brilliantly taken opener from Santi Cazorla, who smacked in a rebound after 19 minutes, and an even better goal from Aaron Ramsey, who struck a swerving shot with the outside of his right boot after 59 minutes, took Arsenal to 25 points from their 10 matches.

Liverpool, who had won three of their last four league games and drawn the other, started brightly at Arsenal but the home side took a grip on the game after breaking the deadlock.

Ramsey, who has now scored 10 goals this season, told BT Sport: “We got stuck into them and managed to get a goal early, which put us in good shape for the second half, and we managed to finish the job.

“They were full of confidence, they have been in fine form and they showed that early on, but we managed to weather the storm and got the goals.”
