OPTA RECORDS BROKEN!

Yep, history was made at Anfield today. Our friends at Opta had not one, but TWO records broken this afternoon:

27 - Arsenal today faced more shots than they have in any other Premier League game since Opta records began

36.5% - Arsenal's possession figure vs Liverpool today was lower than they've recorded in any other PL game since Opta records began

VIEW FROM ANFIELD

Greg Stobart reports: “The Merseysiders dominated for large periods and might feel they should have won the match, though with Raheem Sterling leading the line they clearly lack the clinical bite of Luis Suarez. At the other end, Olivier Giroud continues to show how important he is after bagging his fourth goal in six league games since returning from injury.”

FULL-TIME SUMMARY

Martin Skrtel rescues a deserved point for 10-man Liverpool but it could have been more had they capitalised on their first-half dominance. Arsenal were much-improved after the break but couldn’t hold on in the nine added minutes despite their man advantage. Reaction coming up.

LIVERPOOL 2-2 ARSENAL - SKRTEL GOAL

GOAL: There’s the equaliser! A corner is drifted in from the right and Per Mertesacker and Calum Chambers fail to get to the ball before MARTIN SKRTEL. Arsenal have nobody on the far post and Skrtel powers a header into the corner!

LIVERPOOL 1-2 ARSENAL - BORINI RED CARD

Oh dear, oh dear. He’s only just come on but Fabio Borini is dismissed for a second bookable offence. The first is a silly one - handed out for dissent after a decision goes against him - and the second is for a high boot on Santi Cazorla which rips the Spaniard’s shirt! Borini sprints straight down the tunnel, and Liverpool have it all to do...

RED CARD! BORINI IS OFF!

LIVERPOOL 1-2 ARSENAL - CAMPBELL ON

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appears to have picked up a knock and is replaced by Joel Campbell.

LIVERPOOL 1-2 ARSENAL - BORINI v SZCZESNY

Fabio Borini goes for goal again now, this time from an extremely tight angle on the right-hand side of the box, and Wojciech Szczesny easily parries wide for a corner. Time’s ticking...

17:43 GMT

21/12/2014

LIVERPOOL 1-2 ARSENAL - SZCZESNY SAVES!

It’s a comfortable save, in truth, but it’s progress from Liverpool. Raheem Sterling can’t work a shooting opportunity so runs down the left of the area and lofts over a cross. Fabio Borini leaps highest but his header is easy for Wojciech Szczesny to palm over.

LIVERPOOL 1-2 ARSENAL - GIROUD REPLACED

And a change for the visitors now - Francis Coquelin on for Olivier Giroud.

LIVERPOOL 1-2 ARSENAL - LAMBERT ON

Frustration is growing around Anfield as Arsenal continue to cut out Liverpool attack after attack. Rickie Lambert is introduced now in place of Kolo Toure, creating a tactical wonder that not even the Liverpool players understand. Is Raheem Sterling REALLY being asked to play left-back?
