Arsenal and Liverpool share the spoils in six-goal thriller

The last round of games before Christmas is headlined by a hugely anticipated clash between Arsenal and Liverpool.

Being just a point behind Liverpool a win could help us get back on track after the blip of December as we head into some more challenging games against Crystal Palace and Chelsea and really kickstart our race for the top four again.

Nine hat-tricks have been scored by Liverpool in league games against the Gunners - the last from Peter Crouch in March 2007 in a 4-1 Anfield win.

Martin Fisher: "It's fifth versus fourth, with Arsenal one point behind their opponents, but even as the season reaches its midway point, fourth spot looks like being as good as it gets for these two giants".

Roberto Firmino secured a point for Liverpool in a thrilling 3-3 Premier League draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Friday, having earlier seen his side squander a two-goal lead.

Arsenal will be hoping to keep a high-octane Liverpool side at bay, while also solving their own issues in front of goal.

The Egypt global is the first player to reach that landmark for Liverpool since Luis Suarez in 2013-14, when they went agonisingly close to denying Manchester City the Premier League title.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere said his side had been too cautious in the first half.

"First half we dominated".

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.

Arsenal limped to the half time whistle and Liverpool, though leading, should have done better.

Salah finally got the goal his enterprising display deserved in the 52nd minute, advancing in the area as Arsenal backed off before slotting a fine finish into the far corner. It's yet another game that they've thrown away a lead - something they have done four times in the space of a month.
