    Liverpool join Everton on maximum points, nine from nine.

    Merseyside battle for the title?

    There's Leicester to factor in too of course and the fact that it has been only three games.

    Head here to read the reports

    We are back on Tuesday for Carabao Cup action.

    Until then.

  2. 'Who cares in this moment who is up there?

    Liverpool 3-1

    Liverpool

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to BBC Sport: "I'm completely happy with our performance. We played good football, we were flexible - we mixed it up.

    "We reacted quickly to their goal and scored a top goal. We dominated the second half.

    "Most of their situations were offside. It feels like a few times... but nobody looks at the flag anymore.

    "We did it and deserved the three points.

    "I'm really pleased for Diogo Jota. Top, top guy. It's so difficult to improve a team like ours. He's been on my list for two or three years, he's here now."

    On joining Leicester and Everton on nine points: "Carlo Ancelotti did super, top, top, top business. I'm not at all surprised. Leicester is Leicester. They play some good football. Who cares in this moment who is up there? It's just the start."

  3. 'We're getting better every day'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Arsenal

    Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin to Sky Sports: "I think with the chances we were creating I felt we had chances of drawing or winning the game.

    "When you come to Liverpool away you have to score your chances and not commit the mistakes we made.

    "The difference is very fine margins. We made mistakes in the goals and our chances didn't go in.

    "We were way more effective in other games we played against them. We gave them a good fight but we're frustrated. We're getting better every day."

  4. 'We played outstanding football'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live: "Arsenal had the first counter attack and we were unlucky. I don’t know how people make a defensive crisis out of that – I have no problem, do what you want. But I lose a bit of respect for this. We played outstanding football before and outstanding football after. The boys played an exceptional football game."

    On Andrew Robertson's mistake for the Arsenal goal: "It’s only a mistake. That’s just a curiosity of ball, foot, grass. It’s no problem. The reaction was brilliant. I loved all three goals but full back to full back [for the goal Robertson scored] – I love it."

    On three wins from three: "It’s been a very difficult start. When I saw the schedule I thought 'wow' as Leeds was the most difficult you could get, then away to Chelsea and home to Arsenal, who are flying. That was really tough but we won it and that’s good."

  5. 'A tough start but nine points'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Liverpool

    Last bit from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to Sky Sports: "We cannot build up to each game the same, a team who builds need more players in the area where you build. We try to win the first balls and be ready for the second ball. We have to be brave enough to cause them problems, I really liked the game. I was worried at half time we not keep it going but we could.

    "Pre-season was difficult for everybody but it is a strange season. Teams did not do exactly what they wanted to do last year, Everton have three new players and are flying.

    "We play Arsenal again on Thursday and you will see players who you did not see today. Then Aston Vila on Sunday who are flying. Leeds, Chelsea and Arsenal is a tough start but nine points.

    On the new handball rule: "We all agree that Eric Dier did not do anything wrong and it as a penalty. you cannot control your body in that way have to move somehow, only thing to do is cut arms off. Even the referees are not happy with the rule and I am not happy how long we wait for the offsides. Some rules changes did not help so far but in the moment we have to accept it."

  6. 'We have a long way to go in many things'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Arsenal

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to BBC Sport: "We were in the game for a big part of the game. The reality is they are superior to us in many aspects. You could see that is some phases.

    "I'm really happy in the way the team competed and kept believing. This is the standard we have to reach. We are on a different journey. They've been together five years, we've had a few months.

    "They scored too early [after Arsenal's goal], big mistake from us. I had a feeling we were going to have chances in the second half.

    "We had probably the best chance of the game. You have to put them in the net when you have chances against them.

    "We have a long way to go in many things."

  7. 'It s absolutely wow'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Liverpool

    More from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on Sky Sports: "We had so many big moments and I don't dream we finish off each situation, we were 1-0 down but we won it and it was completely deserves. could we score more goals? Yes. Could they score? Yes. We played constantly a high line.

    "How can you defend Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with not having a high line? We punished them from time to time, did not punish them but killed a little of their match plan. They stuck to it but we did it again and again.

    "We want to win the ball as high as we can that is why I was not frustrated or disappointed. The games can go either way and if they score goals it looked slightly different. It is about how you play, how you create and early i the season, with this performance, it s absolutely wow.

  8. 'Nothing bad to say about the game'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Liverpool

    Sky cut to Klopp as Roy Keane was giving his assessment of the game...

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp tells Sky Sports: "Did I hear right Mr Keane said we had a sloppy performance, did he say that? Did he say that is was sloppy? I want to hear it, that is an incredible description of this game.

    "Nothing, absolutely nothing was sloppy. dominant against a team in form and be careful as hell that we did not get caught on the counter-attack. Alisson had to make one save, they had two chances in behind but apart from that the football we played was exceptional tonight. This game tonight there is nothing bad to say, it was the opposite of sloppy."

  9. 'The lads dug me out of a hole'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Liverpool

    Liverpool defender Andy Robertson to Sky Sports: "It was a fantastic counter-pressing game from us. We all reacted when we lost the ball. We put them under pressure and forced them into mistakes. With the ball we showed quality.

    "We can't have too many complaints, other than my assist at the wrong end. 99 times out of 100 I clear that. The lads dug me out of a hole. A couple of years ago I'd have let that get to my performance.

    "We showed a positive reaction. They've got a fast frontline which you need to be wary of. We dealt with them well and caught them offside a few times.

    "We could have had a couple more. We'll take the 3-1. It's nice to beat your rivals and make it three wins from three."

  10. 'I have one, I want more'

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Liverpool

    Liverpool forward Diogo Jota tells Sky Sports: "It is an amazing feeling, I just wish it could be with a full stadium but I am happy to seal the win for the team and get the result.

    "In football sometimes you score, sometimes you miss and you have to believe you are going to score and fortunately I did.

    "[The manager] told me to keep pressing like we were doing and be happy with the ball and do what I used to do. Play good football and press without the ball.

    "I will do my job in training every day, hard work and do my best on match day.

    "The first one is always the hardest one, to keep on going is the is the most important think. I have one, I want more.

    "We are pretty much in the beginning, three games in and we want to keep going and get three points in the next game."

  11. Post update

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Comfortable in the end for Liverpool.

    They are going to take some stopping.

    Back-to-back is what you want to achieve, to be classed as one of the greats.

    They are certainly on course to do it.

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Perfect start to the season for the champions, three wins from three for Liverpool.

    A slight blip for Mikel Arteta's Arsenal.

  14. Post update

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Chance for a consolation, the invisible man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang suddenly appears in injury time but his pass to Eddie Nketiah is poor and the opportunity is lost.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    A late change for Liverpool.

    Roberto Firmino makes way for Takumi Minamino.

  16. Post update

    Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    That ball hit Diogo Jota on the arm as he controlled it but on this occasion the goal is given.

    Going to have to refer to the 'new handball law' handbook to see why it wasn't chalked off.

  17. GOAL - Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

    Diogo Jota

    All over.

    A dream Premier League debut for Diogo Jota.

    David Luiz's headed clearance is poor falling to the Portuguese on the edge of the box, he takes it on his chest and drills a low volley into the bottom corner.

    Bernd Leno was unmoved.

  18. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Arsenal

    Not on the same wavelength.

    Liverpool have a great chance to end the game but Mohamed Salah leaves the ball for Jota, Jota leaves it for Salah and Berno Leno says thank you very much.

  19. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Arsenal

    Absolutely awful.

    Get Nicolas Pepe off those corners.

    He can't get it past the first man.

    Five to go.

  20. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Arsenal

    Liverpool still full of running, pressing high in the Arsenal penalty area.
