Premier League, February 8 2014

Liverpool 5
  • Skrtel (1, 10)
  • Sterling (16, 52)
  • Sturridge (20)
Arsenal 1
  • Arteta (69 pen)

One of Liverpool’s finest victories of the Premier League era came in 2013/14, when their exciting team, in the process of challenging for the title eventually won by Manchester City, eased past Arsenal at Anfield. Raheem Sterling, who has since become one of Europe’s finest players, and Martin Skrtel each scored twice. Daniel Sturridge also scored, against opponents whose only goal came from the penalty spot, via Mikel Arteta.

Liverpool’s manager that day was Brendan Rodgers; Arsenal’s was Arsène Wenger. Speaking exclusively to The Coaches’ Voice, Rodgers revisits the game plan that involved Sterling combining with Sturridge, Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho to such devastating effect.
