A stunning burst of four goals in the first 20 minutes led to Liverpool hammering Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

After opening the scoring inside 53 seconds, defender Martin Skrtel quickly scored a second goal with a fine header, before further strikes from Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge emphasised the Reds' dominance.

Sterling added his second in the second half, with Arsenal's only reply coming from a Mikel Arteta penalty.

The identity of Liverpool's unlikely goalscoring hero wasn't lost on many.

Arsenal finally had a moment to cheer when Arteta converted from the penalty spot, but it was undoubtedly Liverpool's day, and the jokes were about to flow once more:

Ultimately though, the final word went to two managers with extremely varying moods:
