Date: 22 December 2017
Venue: Emirates Stadium
Arsenal and Liverpool shared the spoils in a six-goal thriller, as they drew 3-3 at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night.
10 minutes into the first half, the Reds were forced into a change after Jordan Henderson picked up a knock. He was replaced by James Milner.
The Reds carved out the first chance of the game in the 21st minute when Sadio Mane picked out Roberto Firmino, whose header was turned away by Petr Cech.
Four minutes later, Liverpool went ahead as Mohamed Salah's deflected cross found Philippe Coutinho, who sent a looping header over Cech, 0-1.
The Gunners, meanwhile, struggled in the first half and showed no attacking intent as they were sloppy on the ball in the middle of the park.
It was nearly 2-0 three minutes before the break as Salah failed to beat Cech in a one-on-one situation before Sadio Mane blazed over from the rebound with the goal at his mercy.
Five minutes into the second half, Salah made up for his earlier miss as the Egyptian collected a pass from Firmino before firing a deflected effort past Cech, 0-2.
Arsenal hit back in the 53rd minute through Alexis Sanchez, who headed home Hector Bellerin's cross from the right, 1-2.
Two minutes later, the scores were level as Granit Xhaka was allowed time and space to unleash a powerful strike that sailed right through the hands of Simon Mignolet, 2-2.
The comeback was complete in the 58th minute when Mesut Ozil played a neat one-two with Alexandre Lacazette before calmly lobbing Mignolet from close range, 3-2.
However, Liverpool restored parity on 70 minutes through Firmino's effort from the edge of the box although Cech should have done better with the effort.
With eight minutes remaining, Jurgen Klopp introduced former Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Coutinho.
Both sides pushed for a winning in the closing stages but they were unable to create clear cut chances as the score remained 3-3 at the full-time whistle.
