The Reds were back in league action after the international break and Chelsea‘s victory at Leicester made it a must-win game.

Mohamed Salah scored his customary goal to put the game to bed and Takumi Minamino netted less than a minute after being introduced.
Here’s how supporters reacted to a superb win on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s comments section.
A memorable victory was lauded by the masses…
Superb. All the talk was about an up and coming Arsenal side but we blew them away. Could’ve been more. Now get that side rotated in midweek ?

Top Reds 17-1 Bottom Reds
A scintillating display from these finished reds with nobody on the bench.

“Well done brilliant score keep up the great work” – Maggie Lowe on Facebook.
Big bowl of popcorn and a bottle of rum for Match of the Day tonight I think

West Ham memories firmly erased. Proper performance in all departments there. Fluid and sharp, a delight (and rarity) to see after an international break. Trent as vital to this side as Salah, huge result. #LFCdigest

Deserved win. Counter pressing masterclass. Clean sheet and the fact that Taki x Jota, who we’re gonna have to rely on, scored are the most pleasing aspects. Thiago excellent

Ox is having an absolutely superb game.
Utterly fantastic – shows what rhythm and game time (and confidence that comes with that) can do.

Fabinho is unreal ??

This second half has been a joy. Liverpool at their very best.
Numerous standout players, but particularly loved Fabinho’s performance. An incredible footballer.

An excellent performance from Thiago tonight too.

Mikel Arteta’s antics were mocked, backfiring spectacularly…
Grateful for Mikel Arteta for waking Liverpool up. Sluggish first 30 but got going in the end. More runners breaking the lines needed second half.

Really enjoyed Arteta trying to front a six-foot-four feller from his height with his Burton jacket on and his Just For Men barnet.
— Daniel Austin (@_Dan_Austin) November 20, 2021
Arteta MOM for Liverpool ????????

“Arteta must learn never to disrespect Klopp at Anfield, not a wise move” – Erwin Parapat on Facebook.
Arsenal fans looking for our “famous atmosphere” after 5 minutes. Not for the first time, should have kept their mouths shut. Great result and performance. Was that “fascinating” enough for you, Arteta. Divy

Much love to Micky Arteta there, for lighting a fire under the team and in fact 50,000 scousers in the stands. Hero.

The title race is very much alive…
Some of our fans gave Chelsea the title today before this match vs Arsenal. Y’all are clowns straight up.

Full time. Four goals, four goalscorers, four points off top. 4-0. #LFC
— Jim Boardman (@JimBoardman) November 20, 2021
Not surprised, bi-annual win against arsenal. We are coming for the title, up the reds! #LFC ?
— axhmn (@axhmn72) November 20, 2021
Another crushing win over @Arsenal at Anfield. As far as the @premierleague title is concerned, there’s @LFC, Man City and Chelsea and a sizeable gap to the rest. Arsenal were unbeaten in 10 games before tonight, then were simply brushed aside. #bbcfootball #LIVARS
