Defense Be Damned, Arsenal And Liverpool's 3-3 Draw Was Thrilling

  • Paul Merson says Arsenal will beat Liverpool

Arsenal vs. Liverpool lived up to his lofty billing, with Vincent Kompany posting the most flawless Tweet during the thrilling 3-3 draw.

Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah scored either side of half-time to put Liverpool ahead and had even more chances to put the game to bed.

But Klopp rallied behind his side despite dropping two points from a winning position.

"We are on our way and we have to keep the team together and improve", he said.

"There was nearly an expectation before the game that there were going to be goals, there was going to be exciting and we've got that", Carragher was quoted as saying by The Mirror.

The Professor vs the Normal One; the perennial underperformers vs the most devastating counter-attacking unit in England - two profoundly distinct styles of football clashed at the Emirates Stadium in a 3-3 draw as both Liverpool and Arsenal failed to close the gap on defending champions Chelsea who are third in the Premier League standings. Arsenal did just that, scoring three goals in under five minutes before Liverpool answered to draw level.

Petr Cech (199 clean sheets) is one clean sheet away from becoming the first ever goalkeeper to record 200 shutouts in the Premier League - however, he's conceded 14 goals in his five games against Liverpool for Arsenal; at least six more than he has against any other side. It was Ayew's second goal of the season, with his previous league strike coming against Palace at Selhurst Park in August. I think there's a chance he becomes manager, but we want to stop his dreams.

Opting to sit back deep into their own half to negate Salah and Sadio Mane's bursting runs behind their defence, the Arsenal players looked far from comfortable with or without possession. The result is not what we wanted. All the goals were our fault, really, and that's something we have to learn from and we need to do it quickly, because it seems to be a thing for us this year. You don't need to make it bigger than it is.

"But tonight it is different".
