Arsenal and Liverpool served up another classic on Friday as they played out a 3-3 draw to share the spoils at the Emirates.

The Reds dominated the first half, although they really should have been ahead by three or four goals instead of just the solitary goal by Philippe Coutinho at the break. Their lead was doubled less than ten minutes into the second half through the unstoppable Mohamed Salah.

But, Arsenal made a quick turnaround in a fantastic five-minute spell as Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil socred a goal each to give the Gunners the lead. The visitors had the last say in the match though, with Roberto Firmino scored from a powerful finish to ensure the match ended all square.

While the match was quite the spectacle for the neutrals, fans of either side were hardly amused, with the respective managers copping a lot of flak as well, starting with the Arsenal fans.

Liverpool fans weren’t far behind, with the criticism of their faltering defence, as well as Jurgen Klopp.

Simon Mignolet was singled out for criticism as well, after playing a major role in his side’s defensive capitulation, while Petr Cech wasn’t spared either.

One user summed the state of the Arsenal and Liverpool defensive setups perfectly.
