@thisisanfield 3 game changing moments in the 3-3 1) The non red card 2) Allen's miss 3) Bringing Moses when Sturridge would've been better

An intense derby today from the start- dramatic, rough, thrilling, yet agonizing for both sides.

@thisisanfield Allen to make it 3 we would have strolled it. Just those moments can make a season. They all add up in the end.

@Footy_MarcoL The defense was poor in my opinion, Sakho was crying out for this game vs Lukaku as opposed to Skrtel
