But it was not to be, as goals from Diogo Jota and Robert Firmino sealed the deal for the Merseyside club who are competing against Manchester City for this year’s league title.
Odinga was accompanied by a number of politicians including Hassan Joho, James Orengo, Peter Kenneth and trade unionist Francis Atwoli.
Also in attendance were Odinga’s two kids Winnie and Raila Junior.

Eventually, Arsenal’s loss did not only heartbreak Odinga. It excited his political enemies most of whom rushed to Twitter to express their opinion.
Liverpool turning up in UDA colors wasn't a coincidence to beat Arsenal, it was to show Raila Odinga that losing will always be part of his daily basis components, he will always lose no matter the people around him.
Hail the yellow color. pic.twitter.com/5CULJr8MwL
