Arsenal 3-3 Liverpool: Points shared after Christmas cracker

Liverpool scored 3 and conceded 3 goals in 5 minutes as errors from Mignolet and Joe Gomez cost them dear in an important game against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Jurgen Klopp made two changes to the group that beat Bournemouth 4-0 away last Sunday, with Emre Can and Sadio Mane coming in for Gini Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. 

That implied Liverpool's quite lauded 'Fab Four' all began at the Emirates, with Mane under investigation a touch of following some less than impressive late shows. 

Jordan Henderson joined Can and Coutinho in midfield, while the Reds' fit first-decision resistance of Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren, Ragnar Klavan and Andrew Robertson were all in the group. 

Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette were altogether required for the hosts—an assaulting trio fit for harming any group in Europe on its day. 

The game began at a typically frantic pace, and it was Arsenal who ostensibly settled the snappier of the two sides. 

Henderson left the field with only 10 minutes on the clock, with the captain hoping to be hampered by a hamstring issue. James Milner supplanted him. 

A flawless move including Coutinho and Robertson saw the last play in a hazardous low cross, yet Laurent Koscielny did well to clear the threat. 

Firmino was denied by Petr Cech with a back-post header and afterward barely missed the objective, as the Reds began to manager procedures in north London. 

In the 26th moment, Liverpool's great execution paid profits, as Coutinho circled home a header after Salah's cross diverted into his way. 

It was his eleventh objective of the season, and the sixteenth he has been associated with his last nine away games. 

Firmino twisted a radiant exertion right finished the bar not long after, as Klopp's men hoped to go for the slaughter against the battling has. 

Salah had brilliant opportunity to score his 21st of the crusade subsequent to being sent clean through, yet Cech made the spare. Mane at that point gymnastically volleyed over from the bounce back. 

It had been an exciting first half, however the Reds missed some incredible chances to twofold their lead. 

Salah was denied by Cech after a rankling breakaway with Mane, as the second time frame began in also persistent form. 

The Egyptian didn't need to longer much to locate the net, be that as it may, as he completed by means of an avoidance to send Liverpool into fairyland. 

Frustratingly, Arsenal recovered an objective straight away, with Sanchez heading home after a horrible cautious pass by Gomez. 

It was then 2 after 2 minutes, after Granit Xhaka's long-extend exertion flew past the woeful exertion of Simon Mignolet. 

Groundhog Day for the Reds, up 'til now more guarded mistakes demonstrated expensive. 

An irritating slip for Liverpool was finished when Ozil dinked an exertion over Mignolet, as an astounding turnaround was finished. 

Firmino made it 3-3 with 20 minutes left, as a very strange game of football proceeded, with the ball simply advancing into the net after Cech had done his best to keep it out. 

The last trades were loaded with pressure, tired legs and half-possibilities, however at last both Liverpool and Arsenal needed to make due with a point each. 

That is presently 27 objectives in the last five gatherings. what's more, given the way the match worked out, both Klopp and Arsene Wenger will most likely pretty much take it.
