Ibrahimovic, fresh from scoring twice in United's Wembley triumph over Southampton, had a wretched afternoon and not just because his second-half penalty with the score at 1-1 was saved at full stretch by Artur Boruc, who gave an inspired performance.
Arsène Wenger claimed the decision to leave Alexis Sánchez out of his starting lineup at Anfield was in order to facilitate a more direct approach, before accepting the gamble did not work. Sanchez may be the only Arsenal player who would get in the Bayern side. Simon Mingolet lobbed a goal kick all the way to Liverpool's attacking third.
Slicker with its passing and faster to the ball, Liverpool cut through Arsenal repeatedly and went ahead when Mane's skewed shot from the right was missed by Coutinho and went straight through to Firmino at the far post.
"We have shown on many occasions that we can turn it around and we are happy to play for him, yes".
Firmino and Mane scored Liverpool's first two goals in a blistering first-half performance.
Yet that also underlined Arsenal's mediocre record against elite opponents which is both part of their problem and, seemingly, of Sanchez's frustration. It looked like this match could be a shootout, but Arsenal didn't have any bullets. With Bayern winning the first leg 5-1, Wenger will need a miracle if his side is to make it through to the quarterfinals. For Wenger to rest Sanchez for a match that was without a doubt more important than the Champions League one was absurd. I believe for every single player it's the same.

Mississippi State responded well, ending the period on an 8-0 run to cut the lead to one after the first. The fans likely helped the Gamecocks in their previous victory this season against Mississippi State.

WTTV reports that Watts' cellphone and purse were retrieved inside the auto and that the passenger side door was open. Her cause of death will not be officially known until the results of her autopsy, scheduled for Monday, are released.
Reuben Foster reportedly told hospital worker 'Do you know who I am?'
This only compounds the negative buzz on Foster from what interviews he did with teams before his premature departure. Players at NFL Scouting Combine will hope to make an impact both in their drills and in their meetings.
Wenger eventually brought on the Chilean worldwide at half-time at Anfield and he set up Danny Welbeck for a goal that breathed life into Arsenal. Wouldn't you know it, they were much better with him on the field.
"But you have that many times in the history of every squad". "We've had a shot, we've had a shot", Arsenal fans sang sarcastically when Granit Xhaka managed to drill a shot over the crossbar. It's in fifth place, and finishing in the top four seems less and less likely.
The England forward lifted an accomplished finish over Mignolet for his first league goal since the end of April. Maybe the Gunners can win an FA Cup, but those no longer satisfy supporters. However, if it's down to form, and Wenger is trying to make a point that anybody can be dropped he's wrong.
As the Gunners' best player this season - and perhaps in general - his potential departure would prove detrimental to their hopes of winning the Premier League.
Their chorus of "he's just a one-season wonder" was a sarcastic reminder to all those who wrote off Kane before he embarked on a prolific run of three successive seasons with at least 20 goals.
"The true warrior fights not because he hates the ones in front of him, but because he loves those behind him".
