Liverpool survive Arsenal fightback in six-goal thriller

Mesut Ozil

Arsenal scored three goals in quick succession, inside five minutes to be exact, helped by some lackadaisical Liverpool defending and calamitous goalkeeping from Simon Mignolet.

"Arsenal were not in the game apart from 10 minutes".

"Liverpool's stutters have come at Anfield but on the road they have been magnificent, winning their last four and scoring 16 goals along the way".

Showing the desire and assertiveness completely missing in the first half, Arsenal pulled level through Alexis Sanchez and Granit Xhaka by the 56th minute.

Arsene Wenger's side looked to regroup and stem the flow of Liverpool pressure as the game already appeared to be stretched which looked to suit the visitors.

Jurgen Klopp's side had to settle for a point after a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.

The Egypt global is the first player to reach that landmark for Liverpool since Luis Suarez in 2013-14, when they went agonisingly close to denying Manchester City the Premier League title.


Fourth placed Liverpool remain one point above fifth placed Arsenal after a Christmas cracker that underlined the qualities and problems with two teams who harboured title ambitions in August, but now trail way behind runaway leaders Manchester City.

Mohamed Salah: The former Chelsea winger has ran Arsenal youngster Ainsley Maitland Niles ragged in the first half who is not getting much help from his more experienced teammates.

Emre Can threaded a pass through to Firmino, before his strike eventually found the back of the net as Cech failed to get a strong enough hand on the ball and prevent Liverpool from finding an equaliser.

Liverpool appeared to be cruising to an impressive away victory after Salah scored his 21st goal of the season to double the lead.

Arsenal limped to the half time whistle and Liverpool, though leading, should have done better.

"The motivation is there, the squad have a good mentality, it's just for us make sure were on top of our game and we play with a determined attitude".
