Arsenal, Liverpool's six-goal thriller displayed both teams' lack of structure

We took a look at Arsenal and Liverpool fans reactions to Ozil and Coutinho on social media. Perhaps nothing was more damning than Milner's admission after the game, "We've got to see the game out".

But the hosts suddenly came alive and, unbelievably, they were ahead by the 58th minute with goals from Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil turning the game upside down.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has responded to reports that he has had a falling out with fellow African star Sadio Mane.

Liverpool were not finished yet, though, as on 71 minutes they levelled the scores.

Jurgen Klopp's side finally added a second seven minutes into the second half through Salah, who was relatively quiet during the match when defended by young Arsenal left back Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The rampant Reds should have been two up by half-time, but Firmino curled over and Salah shot too close to Cech with Arsenal all over the place before the interval.

The visitors established a two-goal lead on 52 minutes, with a touch of fortune. Three hundred and eighty eight seconds after Salah's strike, Arsenal had taken the lead much to the delight of the raucous Emirates crowd, for whom Christmas had arrived early.

But Arsenal wasn't done.

As has been Arsenal's blight over the years against the top clubs, you can never be sure which Gunners side will turn up - the one which produces moments of effortless skill or the one whose shoddy defending compels Wenger to ponder his future in North London - it just so happens to be that both aspects of Arsenal were on display against Liverpool within a span of 90 minutes.

But Liverpool being Liverpool - and Arsenal being Arsenal - there were always going to be more goals. Roberto Firmino received the ball on the edge of the area from Emre Can.

Unfortunately, neither side was able to find a late victor.

There are then a remarkable nine Premier League games in store on Saturday, with Everton and champions Chelsea first going head-to-head in the early game, before Manchester United travel to Leicester for the day's late kickoff.
