Arsenal jumped into an early lead at the Emirates against Liverpool, as Spanish international Santi Cazorla smashed home a controlled finish in the 19th minute to send Gunners fans wild.

After an end-to-end start from both teams, it was the home side who went ahead thanks to a great piece of skill.

Bacary Sagna raced down the right flank and whipped in an inviting ball that Cazorla first headed against the post before reacting quickest to the ricochet by dispatching the rebound calmly to put Arsenal 1-0 up.

The goal sees Liverpool up against it and is exactly the kind of start Arsene Wenger would’ve been hoping for.

Liverpool are unbeaten away from home this season and despite going behind, Brendan Rodgers‘ men have looked dangerous on the break.

Can the Reds fight back against Arsenal?

    Great follow up by Cazorla. Deserved lead.

    As for the other end, what has Martin Atkinson done? Sagna got the yellow card, but it was Liverpool that was punished.

    Take off Cissokho and let Hendo go LWB, bring on Coutinho to play behind SAS. Cissokho has been awful. Flanno has outplayed him by a mile.

      You called it on the sub!

      Much better start to the second half by Liverpool. Suarez is looking very lively.

      Comeback on?
