Epl: Arsenal 3 - 3 Liverpool: The madness continues

Epl: Arsenal 3 - 3 Liverpool: The madness continues

Arsenal and Liverpool kick this weekend's top flight action off when Jurgen Klopp comes up against Arsene Wenger at the Emirates tonight.

There have been 17 goals scored in the 90th minute or later in this match in Premier League history; more than in any other fixture in the competition.

The play began from some lackluster defending by Arsenal on a throw in and Liverpool is a team that will punish lazy defending, unless they're playing Everton. In the end, a 3-3 draw was about right for the two clubs fighting for Top 4 Champions League spots.

Salah is vying with Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane for the continental honour, which is due to be announced on January 4.

The good news for Klopp is Emre Can is available again after suspension, but can he force his way back into the side?

The rampant Reds should have been two up by half-time, but Firmino curled over and Salah shot too close to Cech with Arsenal all over the place before the interval.

The first came a minute after Salah's goal thanks to an Alexis Sanchez header. Who will make more tackles?

But Arsenal wasn't done.

In disarray for 45 minutes and behind to a rare headed goal by Philippe Coutinho, Arsenal were in danger of suffering a pre-Christmas nightmare.

Liverpool were stunned and the sky fell in on them when Ozil fired Arsenal in front after a superb back heel by Alexandre Lacazette to send the home crowd into delirium.

But Liverpool being Liverpool - and Arsenal being Arsenal - there were always going to be more goals.

Liverpool were granted acres of space in their attacking third and with the Fab Four of Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Mane and Salah running circles around the Arsenal defence, goalscoring chances were inevitable.

Unfortunately, neither side was able to find a late victor.

Arsenal have won 13 of their last 14 Premier League games at the Emirates, losing the other against Manchester United (1-3) at the start of the month.
