Liverpool dug deep inside the final minute to deny Arsenal maximum points as both sides played out a 3-3 score line in a premier league tie at Anfield on Tuesday.
Arsenal were deadlocked with Liverpool at half-time of an incredible clash at Anfield after four goals were scored in less than 20 minutes.
Roberto Firmino scored twice for the hosts, while Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud were on target for the visitors to head for the dugout at half time with a 2-2 score line. After the break, Olivier Giroud grabbed his second and Arsenal’s third on the night but a late drama saw Joe Allen score on the 90th minute as both sides shared spoils.
After a brief rest for Saturday’s FA Cup win against Sunderland, the talismanic Mesut Ozil returned to the starting XI, along with Mertesacker, Nacho Monreal, Mathieu Flamini and Ramsey.
Liverpool, meanwhile, opted to start with Firmino as the central striker in a system that worked to such good effect in the win against Manchester City.
The Gunners twice fell behind to goals from the Brazilian Roberto Firmino, but twice showed their mettle as Aaron Ramsey and then Olivier Giroud levelled matters.
The France international then missed a golden opportunity during a frantic opening spell, but more than made up for it after the restart.
Giroud has been in fine form on the road this season, and he claimed his 11th goal in his last 11 away games as he picked the ball up in the area, span away his marker and whipped an unstoppable drive into the far corner.
It was a stunning strike and despite coming relatively early in the second period, it set up an agonising, end-to-end finale as the Gunners sought to see out an unforgettable encounter.
It was a fraught, frenzied finish but as the game entered injury time, Joe Allen fired in a dramatic equalizer for the hosts and the Gunners had to settle for a point. Arsenal remain top of the Premier League despite the disappointing result.
