Arsenal and Liverpool share the spoils in six-goal thriller

That is the only occasion in 34 years that Liverpool have won at Arsenal by more than one goal.

Oxlade Chamberlain came on as a late sub, roundly booed by the Arsenal fans, and Mo Salah had a late chance for the reds but fired into the side netting despite having 4 players surrounding him.

Firmino should have done better with a pair of back-post headers from deep left-wing crosses but Liverpool opened the scoring after 26 minutes.

Xhaka took aim from 25 yards out on 56 minutes and beat Simon Mignolet to tie the scoreline- although the keeper should have done better - before Mesut Ozil's deft finish on 58 minutes put Arsenal ahead.

Along with the massive history and rivalry between the two sides the anticipation for tonight's game against Liverpool has been amplified even more.

Liverpool have now drawn three of their last four Premier League matches.

The result means Liverpool remain fourth in the Premier League table in the race for the Champions League spots and Arsenal are a point behind them in fifth.

However, he has conceded 14 goals in his five games against Liverpool since joining Arsenal.

The youngster was playing at right-back in the game and had look fairly settled in the first-half, but was caught out in the second period.

There was one last plot twist as Firmino bagged Liverpool's equaliser to cap a breath-taking clash that was nearly as memorable as the Reds' 4-3 victory over Arsenal in the corresponding fixture last season.

Salah's 21st Liverpool goal this season should have been the knockout blow, but incredibly it was the signal for an epic collapse from the visitors.

Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas had some surprise answers when asked to pick his Arsenal and Liverpool combined XI.

The Gunners head in to the game after booking their place in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup with a 1-0 win over West Ham in midweek but their focus will now be on breaking back in to the top four in the Premier League.
