Liverpool put in one of the best 20 minute displays in Premier League history to build a lead they would not surrender, as they comfortably beat the Premier League leaders Arsenal on Saturday.

After Martin Skrtel scored in the opening minute, Brendan Rodgers' side never looked like losing. Skrtel added a second as well as a brace from England youngster Raheem Sterling and another from Daniel Sturridge, with a consolation Mikel Arteta penalty giving the Gunners more than they deserved in a dreadful showing.

The victory moves Liverpool five points clear of Everton in fourth place, and just six points off leaders Arsenal, who could be overtaken by both Chelsea and Manchester City this weekend.
