We are a bit unlucky fixture-wise in that after a great win against Fulham last weekend we get Liverpool away'.

The Eagles have failed to win nor score at home in the Premier League this season and the Arsenal represents the start of a run of hard fixtures. It was a quick start to the game with Mohamed Salah finding the net within the first ten minutes, and the Merseysiders could have found the back of the net at least three more times before halftime. "I'm very happy we kept a clean sheet and scored some goals".

Fabinho was a reported £43.7million arrival from Monaco in May but has struggled to establish himself in Klopp's first XI amid Liverpool's impressive start to the campaign.

In the late game, Leicester City fought back for a 1-1 draw at home to 10-man West Ham United but that was overshadowed by reports in British media that a helicopter belonging to the Midlands club's owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha had crashed in the vehicle park on Saturday evening. The Reds were able to add another two goals to make sure of the win, however Paterson's goal prevented what would've been a remarkable record for Liverpool.

Mane produced two delicious finishes, while Salah supplied two assists as well as providing the early breakthrough.

It was a game that Liverpool will get some confidence out of, as well as the important three points to go back on top of the table until Manchester City has the opportunity to tie on Monday versus Tottenham Hotspur. "They are tough, not always nice to play".

"Our goal has to be to be successful. We didn't look solid, stable or compact", Terriers manager David Wagner said. "We know how to play with each other and know our qualities". I don't like it, my boys don't like it, but today it helped to wake us up.

He said: "They are in the Champions League for a reason".
