Alex Iwobi was subbed on in the final four minutes of regulation time for Richarlison as the Nigerian recorded his first win in nine Premier League games against Liverpool at Anfield.
Prior to Saturday’s game at Anfield, Iwobi has drawn four and lost four of the eight games he featured against the Reds since he made his debut against Jurgen Klopp’s side in Arsenal’s 4-3 loss at the Emirates stadium in August 2016 with the Nigerian providing an assist for Theo Walcott on 31 minutes to put the Gunners’ 1-0.It was also his first of six starts in the matches.
Meanwhile, Liverpool equalled an unwanted 98-year-old losing record at Anfield in the Premier League.
The Reds have lost each of their last four home top-flight fixtures to Burnley, Brighton & Hove Albion, Manchester City and now their bitterest rival, Everton who have not won on the ground since 1999.
The Merseyside giants last suffered four home league losses in a row during the 1923-24 campaign, while no reigning top-flight champion has posted four straight defeats at home since Everton in 1928-29.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have dropped down the table into sixth position, now 19 points behind leaders Manchester City, who also have a 10-point advantage over second-placed Manchester United.
