Jamie Carragher: Arsenal And Liverpool 'Will Always Fall Short' Of Winning Trophies

  • Mohamed Salah

If picked, he'll be the most scruntinised player on the pitch and whether he's able to deal with the pressure that'll be heaved on him by not just Arsenal fans in the stadium but Sky Sports' Friday Night team also is a big question we'll find the answer too tonight.

Milner subbed into the match after 10 minutes following an injury to Jordan Henderson, and said the exciting, flowing Liverpool could've used a dose of patience with the lead.

An epic second half initially saw a rampant Liverpool double their advantage shortly after the restart, Salah's shot deflecting in after Firmino led a superb counter-attack. Liverpool remained fourth in the table a point ahead of Arsenal.

Firmino had already squandered two glorious headed chances for Liverpool before Coutinho's deft header while Salah missed two gilt-edged opportunities shortly before halftime as Liverpool carved open Arsenal's rearguard with glee. And that was only when Arsene Wenger's side was trailing 1-0 following Philippe Coutinho's header.

But Liverpool being Liverpool - and Arsenal being Arsenal - there were always going to be more goals.

But inside 388 seconds, Arsenal was a force transformed.


As has been Arsenal's blight over the years against the top clubs, you can never be sure which Gunners side will turn up - the one which produces moments of effortless skill or the one whose shoddy defending compels Wenger to ponder his future in North London - it just so happens to be that both aspects of Arsenal were on display against Liverpool within a span of 90 minutes.

"There was nearly an expectation before the game that there were going to be goals, there was going to be exciting and we've got that", Carragher was quoted as saying by The Mirror.

The visitors bagged a two-goal lead, though the Gunners leveled the game before going in front.

"It was brilliant entertainment, what the Premier League is about, why the world wants to watch".

But Arsenal hit back in stunning style with three goals in five minutes from Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil.

Everton are now unbeaten in five games under new manager Sam Allardyce who has steered the Merseysiders to ninth place having looked in real relegation trouble earlier in the campaign.
