"And afterwards maybe I got a little bit of criticism".

Known for his dislike, putting it likely, of manager Arsene Wenger he was yet again calling for his head.

"You really feel it is intense, we wanted to force ourselves to be strong physically and that is what we were".

Towards the end of the first-half Sadio Mane doubled Liverpool's lead.

"If I am the problem, I am sorry, but I believe all together we lose".

"How can you play like this in a big game for so many of Arsenal's players?" asked former Manchester United captain Gary Neville.

"To be honest with you, if I were another club, would I be looking at him and thinking 'yeah, that's something I'd want'?" He was wasteful in possession and just seemed to give up.

Liverpool were top notch at Anfield today, beating a woeful Arsenal 4-0, with Firmino and Mane scoring in the first half.

Alli however scored four minutes after the break when he responded quickest to a rebound after his initial effort after a corner by Christian Eriksen was saved.

"People might say Sanchez but he's been throwing the towel in over the last six, seven months". Mustafi is sitting on the bench.

And Arsenal legend Henry did not hold back in his assessment after the game.

Already, the positivity of late May has vanished and Wenger is facing further questions about his relationship with the fans, the same examinations that dogged the Frenchman during the early months of 2017.

Twitter user @Not_MOTD, poked fun of Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, by posting a 'Where's Ozil' game for football supporters.

The newspapers were singularly stinging in their criticism.

Wenger refused to criticise individual performances, claiming he and his team need to analyse where it went wrong before judging.

"It was shocking [the goal before half-time] but our performance was absolutely disastrous". "Of course I can't do it every time but I tried to do it more often than last year".

"We were not fighting, we were not running enough, we were not winning any individual battles and as a team we completely failed to respond to their way of playing, and that is the most disappointing thing".
