Klopp 'almost cried' seeing Liverpool star's selfless gesture

The Reds&apos Revolution Klopp leads Liverpool to the top of the Premier

Closing out the year with a match against their rivals was thought to be a tough task but Klopp blitzed Unai Emery's side with victory which served as a flawless closing to 2018.

Liverpool FC turned the game around thanks to Roberto Firmino's quick-fire double and Sadio Mane's cushioned goal to hand the home side a 3-1 lead on Merseyside.

Arsenal will host Fulham in their next game on new year's day, while Liverpool will travel to the Etihad to face Manchester City.

But within five minutes, they were trailing.

Overall, the second half saw Liverpool exert considerably more control.

But after a slow start, Salah, Firmino and Mane are beginning to show the form they did last season in smashing a combined 91 goals.

The Egypt star scored their fourth on the stroke of half-time, converting a penalty after referee Michael Oliver adjudged he had been tripped by Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Aaron Ramesy had a glorious chance to pull one back on 55 minutes, but he chose to slide ball across to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; and the Gabon worldwide was lucky to be called offside as he put the ball over the bar from close range. The decision was given after Sead Kolasinac pushed Dejan Lovren in the back following a free kick, and Firmino sent Leno the wrong way.

What does it mean?

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have tied the knot!
Cyrus posted three black-and-white photos of her and Hemsworth on the singer's Instagram and Twitter accounts on Wednesday. Among the guests at the wedding were the couple's siblings Noah and Brandi Cyrus and Chris and Luke Hemsworth .

Jurgen Klopp has made just one change to the Liverpool starting eleven against Arsenal, with Fabinho coming in for Jordan Henderson.

Salah is chasing a second consecutive Golden Boot but after scoring a penalty to make the score 4-1, he let Firmino take the second spot-kick and seal his hat-trick to make the score 5-1.

The Reds have the most clean sheets this season and have conceded by far the fewest goals, a feature that is often attributed to Premier League champions.

Salah gave up penalty duties to allow Firmino to become the third Brazilian player to score a hat trick in the league, after Robinho and Afonso Alves.

Liverpool are the cream of the crop of the Premier League right now.

The longer they go unbeaten, the more it's going to increase the trepidation of teams going to Anfield.

5-1 flattered Arsenal. Liverpool were full of energy, full of invention.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles of Arsenal scores his sides first goal during the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Arsenal FC at Anfield on December 29, 2018 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Jurgen Klopp said he almost cried when he saw Mohamed Salah's selfless gesture to teammate Roberto Firmino in the second half of his side's 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal at Anfield.
