Arsenal pull off EXTRAORDINARY comeback against Liverpool

The Gunners looked dead and buried - before hitting three goals in the space of five minutes

It’s amazing what can change in just five minutes, eh?

Because after 52 minutes in Arsenal’s Premier League clash against Liverpool this evening, the Gunners were virtually dead and buried at 2-0 down.

“I’ll go stick the kettle on, shall I?”

“I’ll go stick the kettle on, shall I?”

Goals from Philippe Coutinho (in the first-half) and Mohamed Salah had given the Reds a deserved lead.

But Arsene Wenger’s side fought back, with the out-of-form Alexis Sanchez heading home almost straight away from the restart.

Minutes later, Granit Xhaka hit an ab-so-lute beauty from distance to equalise, before Mesut Ozil slotted home soon after to give them a completely unexpected lead.

That’s right.

Within five minutes, the Gunners went from 2-0 down to lead 3-2.

Football, eh?

But you mustn’t write Liverpool off, as the Reds grabbed an equaliser on the 70th minute thanks to Roberto Firmino’s strike over the top of Petr Cech.

So Jurgen Klopp probably won’t murder his team, after all.

But he won’t be happy.

If you look closely, you can actually pinpoint the exact moment his heart breaks in two.

You know what, this game really reminded us of something. 

Ah, yes.

One of the best Premier League games we’ve ever freakin’ seen was between these two back in 2009.

How many was it?

Liverpool – fighting for the title at the time – were hosting Arsenal at Anfield in a game that ended 4-4, with Andriy Arshavin netting all four of Arsenal’s goals.

Back then, it was a result that effectively ended the Reds’ title hopes that season, and made Arshavin a cult-hero in this fixture.

The game we saw tonight is certainly up there.
