The two Premier League heavyweights have had some tight tussles at the home of the Gunners in recent times. Henry Jackson (@OnFootballTweet) looks back at Liverpool’s last five trips to north London.

ARSENAL 2-0 LIVERPOOL: 2nd November 2013

A disappointing afternoon saw Brendan Rodgers’ side produce a limp display and allow Arsenal to move five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

After a decent opening from the Reds, they soon lost control of the match, particularly in midfield. Santi Cazorla converted clinically in the 19th minute after his initial header had come back off the post, and Liverpool simply couldn’t get a hold on the game from that point on.

The in-form Aaron Ramsey fired in a terrific effort in the second half to put the game beyond doubt. Luis Suarez came close late on, but they didn’t deserve anything from the game.

ARSENAL 2-2 LIVERPOOL: 30th January 2013

A hugely entertaining clash back in the 2012/13 season saw Liverpool come away with a point, but it could have been so much better for Rodgers and his men.

Some poor defending from the hosts saw Suarez score via a deflection after just five minutes, and the Reds controlled proceedings until the interval.

Jordan Henderson, improving by the game after a torrid start to life at Anfield, burst through the Gunners defence to eventually fire home and double his side’s lead in the 60th minute.

They allowed their lead to disappear, however, with Olivier Giroud’s header and Theo Walcott’s fine finish bringing the scores level. In the end Liverpool were probably lucky not to lose, as they survived a late Arsenal onslaught.

ARSENAL 0-2 LIVERPOOL: 20th August 2011

A poor contest at the beginning of the 2011/12 campaign was decided by a late Liverpool surge, as Kenny Dalglish’s side earned a precious three points.

The game only really exploded into life with 20 minutes remaining, when young midfielder Emmanuel Frimpoing was dismissed for Arsene Wenger’s side.

Substitutes Suarez and Raul Meireles linked up with 12 minutes remaining, culminating in the unfortunate Ramsey scoring an own goal after Ignasi Miquel’s clearance ricocheted in off the Welshman’s face.

Suarez put the icing on the cake in the dying minutes, tapping the ball home after more good work from Meireles.

ARSENAL 1-1 LIVERPOOL: 17th April 2011

A pivotal afternoon in the 2010/11 title race saw late drama at both ends of the pitch. It was Liverpool who came away the happier of the two sides.

Youngsters Jack Robinson and Jon Flanagan both played most of the game, and did themselves proud at the one of the Premier League‘s most daunting away grounds.

After a tight affair looked to be drifting to a draw, Arsenal were awarded a penalty in the eighth minute of stoppage time after Jay Spearing’s foul on Cesc Fabregas. Robin van Persie converted, and the north London club’s title dreams were still alive.

Remarkably, in the 102nd minute, Lucas was clumsily fouled in the area by Emmanuel Eboue, allowing Dirk Kuyt to stun the home crowd and send the visiting Reds fans into raptures.

ARSENAL 1-0 LIVERPOOL- 10th February 2010

Not for the first, or last, time, this wasn’t exactly a classic clash between Liverpool and Arsenal. A poor first half came and went, before David N’Gog went close for the visitors shortly after the interval.

It was Abou Diaby who was the difference between the two teams on the day, powering home a header after Tomas Rosicky’s fine cross.

Rafa Benitez’s side went on to finish the season in a very disappointing seventh place. The Spaniard’s successful six-year reign at the club came to an end that summer.
