Liverpool vs Arsenal a few quick thoughts

  • A pulsating encounter at Anfield in what was probably one of the games of the season so far
  • Roberto Firmino had arguably one of his best performances for Liverpool and lived up to his £29m price tag
  • Simon Mignolet didn’t have a good game in which has bad week for Liverpool Goalkeepers, Adam Bogdan didn’t even make the bench that must mean the end of his Liverpool career
  • Both of Oliver Giroud’s goal were down to Mignolet errors firstly beaten at the near post and then flapping at a corner
  • Arsenal may consider that two points dropped especially as Manchester City had a bore draw with Everton. They are now joint top with Leicester who simply refuse to fade away
  • Joel Campbell has pretty much played his way into first team regularity with another solid game last night
  • Steven Caulker up front was certainly an interesting move by Jurgen Klopp that in itself didn’t lead to their late equaliser but kudos to the German coach for trying everything a bid to get the points
  • I thought Theo Walcott looked off the boil last night, maybe he would better used an impact sub
  • A good point for Liverpool but they find themselves 9th in the table, they need to get a string of wins together if they have any hopes of qualifying for Europe through the League
  • Maybe they’ll take the shorter route and focus on winning The Capital One Cup
  • As for Arsenal they probably won’t be too unhappy with a point as Anfield isn’t a particularly happy hunting ground for them as of late but the title race looks as of now a 3 horse race
