Liverpool cruised to victory in the capital over Arsenal to assert their European intentions.
Three unanswered second-half goals from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah saw the Reds move to within two points of the top four.
Chelsea's disappointing slump at home to West Brom saw the door blow wide open and Jurgen Klopp's side made no mistake in pouncing on the chance to gain ground in the race for the Champions League.
The Premier League champions dominated at the Emirates Stadium and could've gone in at the break two or three goals to the good.
Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane had two chances with the Brazilian's effort fizzing past Bernd Leno's left-hand post before Mane steered a tame header on goal.
POST MATCH REACTION
James Milner had the best chance of the first 45 when he was teed up by Trent Alexander-Arnold with one side of the goal gaping he curled wide.
In his post-match interview, even manager Jurgen Klopp deemed it a "sitter".
With Salah and Jota's double stealing the headlines in North London, Fabinho continued to stake his claim as the best holding midfielder in the world with another commanding display.
It now begs the feeling of 'what could've been' following months happened by injury and spells in defence after three consecutive games of dominance from the 'lighthouse'.
He won 11 duels, making five recoveries and winning four out of his attempted tackles.
Liverpool fans alike were all saying the same thing about the 27-year-old.
