Goals from Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez put the game beyond Liverpool before a Jordan Henderson penalty gave the visitors hope of a comeback.
Liverpool then had Emre Can sent off for a second booking and Olivier Giroud slammed in the fourth in added time.
Later on Saturday, Chelsea can restore their advantage by beating Stoke City. (dpa/NAN)
