Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool

Liverpool recorded their first away win over Arsenal since 2000 to heap more misery on the Gunners. Jamie Carragher admits that banishing Liverpool's Emirates hoodoo made their first win of the season that much sweeter.

The Reds produced an impressive showing to secure a 2-0 success over Arsene Wenger's side and claim three points on the Gunners' home turf for the first time since 2000. Kenny Dalglish believes the 2-0 victory over Arsenal proves how much better his squad is this season.

The boss introduced Raul Meireles and Luis Suarez with 20 minutes remaining and both played a crucial part in our first win on Arsenal soil since February 2000.

Suarez was applying the pressure which led to Aaron Ramsey's own goal before Meireles set the Uruguayan up for our second. Two goals did the damage and the club's vice captain revealed that Kenny Dalglish's men felt they had a point to prove following the opening day draw with Sunderland.

Samir Nasri impressed for the Gunners but the home side's luck was out after Aaron Ramsey's own goal and a last-minute strike from substitute Luis Suarez handed victory to the visitors.

Arsene Wenger - who now has half his first-choice team out because of suspension or injury - must regroup his squad for next week's crucial Champions League play-off second leg in Udinese and the small matter of a trip to Manchester United.

Nasri - whose £22million move to City is, according to reports on French TV, said to have broken down - did not applaud the crowd as the teams came out of the tunnel, and was then jeered by some sections of the Emirates Stadium faithful when his name was announced.
