Anfield: Liverpool brushed aside a hapless Arsenal 4-0 in the Premier League encounter on Sunday night.

Henry, now working as a pundit for Sky Sports, said he had turned his studio seat around at one moment during the game.

Goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge ensured Arsenal fell to their second straight defeat of the season, with their first coming against Stoke away last weekend.

Wenger did not attempt to gloss over a ramshackle display devoid of any positives, admitting "everything" had gone wrong. "I think from the first to the last minute we were not at the level requested for such a game and not physically, not technically, not mentally were we at the level and we were punished and that's basically it".

Arsene Wenger tore into his Arsenal players after an "absolutely disastrous" performance resulted in a 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool. "I believe our performance on the day was absolutely disastrous".

Wenger's post-match press conference lasted only two minutes and 10 seconds before he left the media room at Anfield, but he also said: "The result is a outcome of our performance".

"The result is a effect of our performance".

"There are some reasons behind it that we have to analyse but the players now go on an global break".

Liverpool rose to second place, two points below United and one above champions Chelsea, who recorded a straightforward 2-0 win over Everton.

"If I didn't believe that we could do that I would probably retire and not play football any more. I wanted to have Loris in this game", he said. "The only thing we can do is come back and give them a better level of performance". "If you give Arsenal space and time, you lose before the game starts, so I don't think they could do a lot of what they wanted, Arsenal, and that is all credit to the boys because they worked really hard".

Former Arsenal full back Lee Dixon, now working for US television network NBC, said it was the worst performance from the club he had witnessed since retiring in 2002.

Ozil will join up with Germany on the worldwide break, which gives Arsenal fans two weeks to seethe over this game.

"We didn't think about winning the game - we thought about the performance".
