Arsenal opened the scoring through Theo Walcott in the first-half, as he redeemed himself for an earlier penalty miss.

The momentum firmly shifted Liverpool’s way just before half-time as Philippe Coutinho scored a sensational free-kick to equalise.

Coutinho again, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane scored three goals in 14 minute after the break to leave Liverpool cruising.

Substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and defender Calum Chambers did cut the deficit but Liverpool held out for a thrilling opening day victory.

Wenger opted to start England under-21 defensive pair Chambers and Rob Holding at the back but the risk didn’t pay off as they leaked four goals to an impressive Liverpool attacking unit.
