Arsenal vs. Liverpool: 6 Things We Learned

A superb goal from Santi Cazorla and another Aaron Ramsey special helped Arsenal to an emphatic 2-0 win over Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium. The win moves the Gunners to five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Arsenal dominated the game from start to finish and strangled the life out of the Reds' much vaunted midfield. Going into the game, all the talk was of how Arsenal, without the injured Mathieu Flamini, would deal with Steven Gerrard and co.

To tell the truth, the Gunners were ruthless in their complete and utter destruction of Brendan Rodgers' team.

The Gunners' opening goal came from the boot of Cazorla on the second attempt, having hit the post with his first. The Spaniard made the most of Bacary Sagna's superb run and cross to finish quite brilliantly. 

The second came from the boot of Ramsey. The Welshman chested the ball down in plenty of space, before elegantly guiding the ball home past Simon Mignolet for his 12th goal of the season in all competitions.

Following Chelsea's shocking 2-0 loss to Newcastle United at St. James' Park, Liverpool and Arsenal had the chance to go clear and claim first position as their own. In the end, it was the Gunners who showed the most appetite. They made Liverpool's title credentials look more than distant as they enhanced their own with their best performance of the season.

Last season, Liverpool wore black for their visit to the Emirates. This time, they wore white. In truth, they surrendered and were beaten black-and-blue by a rampant Arsenal side led, once again, by the brilliant Ramsey. 

Here, Bleacher Report looks at six things we learned from Arsenal vs. Liverpool.
