Liverpool 2-2 Arsenal – Premier League – 21st December 2014

A 97th minute Martin Skrtel header secured Liverpool a share of the points in what was a highly entertaining clash at Anfield.

The Reds were by far the better side in the first-half, with Wojciech Szczesny Arsenal’s saviour on more than one occasion. Liverpool eventually went ahead through Philippe Coutinho just before the break, however, there was still time in the first period for Mathieu Debuchy to head in a rather undeserved equaliser for the Gunners. After the break, the visitors improved and went ahead after Olivier Giroud combined superbly with Santi Cazorla before firing past Brad Jones. The sending-off of sub Fabio Borini for two bookable offences looked to have handed the Gunners all three points. However, with the game almost over, Skrtel, with head bandaged in true hero fashion, rose above a feeble Arsenal backline to head home from an Adam Lallana corner.

Liverpool go 10th, a point ahead of rivals Everton while the Gunners, after once again throwing away valuable points due to their trademark brittle defending, are sixth, ahead of their rivals Spurs on goal difference.

    No video of the Giroud headstomp, eh?

    Borini…….what a tit.

  3. Jarren says:

    @Tyler: To be fair, it was accidental.

    @Dave: Indeed.

    What terrible coverage on the Giroud goal. Maybe you should cover their huge striker who is perched inside the 6. Jaysus, that keeper should be fucking pissed at his defenders.

    Damn, the Arsenal unis are horrendous. Socks are terrible, the form fitting jerseys look stupid, and the shorts are too long.

    It’s beyond me why guys pull their socks over their knees and wear shorts that go belong the knees. Soccer is all about speed and agility. Why would you want to be wearing big baggy shorts and friggin’ leggings?!
