Michael Owen reacts to Liverpool's 4-0 triumph over Arsenal

Liverpool-legend-turned pundit Michael Owen has expressed his delight at the Reds' performance versus Arsenal over the weekend.

Jurgen Klopp's side were simply scintillating with their movement from start to finish as they outclassed the Gunners by a 4-0 scoreline on Sunday.

Roberto Firmino opened the scoring from a corner where he was found unmarked before Sadio Mane made it 2-0 in the first period with a brilliant right-sided curler from the box. Arsenal were therein playing catch-up in the second period, and a mistake from Hector Bellerin allowed Mohamed Salah to bag the third goal of the game after he ran 75 yards up the pitch to put a simple effort past Petr Cech.

Despite the substitutions, there was still more to come from Liverpool as Salah provided a late assist for Daniel Sturridge, who made it 4-0 on the day. The scores could have been far with the Gunners' performance, but Cech put in a huge effort to prevent the club from utter embarrassment.

Following the game, Owen praised the Reds' electric style of football while questioning the lack of characters in the Arsenal side, he tweeted: "Well that first half was an absolute mauling. Liverpool looking electric. Not got enough characters to say what I think about Arsenal."

The victory moves Liverpool into the top-four of the Premier League table, and they are just behind Manchester United, who have made a 100 percent start to the new season. The Reds have also qualified for the Champions League proper of the tournament, and things look rosy for the Merseyside giants as they head into the international break.

Meanwhile, the same cannot be said of Arsenal, who find themselves in a heap following another humiliation at the hands of a rival. The Gunners have now failed to register a win in their last 13 travels to top-six opposition, and this does not make for good reading for a side competing for the league title.
