“I can’t take another 37 games of this” – Liverpool fans react to incredible 4-3 win against Arsenal

Liverpool opened the season with a 4-3 win at Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, in an unforgettable Premier League match. We round-up the best social media reaction.

Being a Liverpool is not good for your health!

A remarkable game at the Emirates saw the Reds pick up maximum points in their opening game of the season, but they almost allowed the Gunners to earn an unlikely draw.

Theo Walcott gave the hosts a first-half lead, having had his penalty saved by Simon Mignolet a minute earlier, but a stunning Philippe Coutinho free-kick levelled the scores on the stroke of half-time.

A wonderful spell early in the second-half saw Adam Lallana make it 2-1, Coutinho add a third and debutant Sadio Mane rifled home an unstoppable fourth.

But Arsenal responded and Liverpool’s game-management was poor. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers both scored to make it 4-3, but Liverpool held on in an incredibly tense finale.

Here’s how social media reacted to a balmy victory:

Going to need a new heart by January at this rate! Middle 3 and front 3 fantastic and Klavan looks like an absolute steal. Give us a new LB and we could be in for a great season!

We looked really disorganised at times, almost like we’re still in pre-season. While many are likely to credit individual errors for the goals, I think overall once we sharpen up our team play, those mistakes will be cut out.
