Liverpool Fans React To Last-Gasp Arsenal Draw

Liverpool drew 2-2 with Arsenal on Sunday, with Martin Skrtel’s late equaliser earning Brendan Rodgers’ 10-man side a crucial point.

It was a hugely entertaining game, and one that the Reds bossed from start to finish. It was a good team performance, and defeat would have been a travesty.

Philippe Coutinho‘s opener seemed to set Rodgers’ side on their way to victory, but goals from Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud turned the game on its head.

The stage was set for Skrtel to bury a stoppage-time header, just minutes after substitute Fabio Borini had been sent-off.

Here is how twitter reacted to proceedings, whether it be ex-players, journalists or fans.

The draw means Liverpool are in 10th place in the Premier League at Christmas, and although that is clearly disappointing, that equaliser may been huge come the end of the season.

Defeat would have left the Reds eight points behind Arsenal, which would take an awful lot of work to overcome in their quest for a top-four finish, with fellow Champions League hopefuls Manchester United even further ahead.

Let’s hope it is a moment that gives Liverpool’s campaign some much-needed momentum.
