FULL TIME: ARSENAL 3-3 LIVERPOOL- A Christmas Football

22: CHANCE! Robertson whips an enticing ball into the area which Firmino meets. He tries to turn a header beyond Cech at his near post, but the Gunners stopper tips it behind for a corner.
21: Iwobi looks to inject some urgency into the Arsenal attack – which has been on the back foot for the past five minutes or so – but having drawn several Liverpool players towards the ball, his wayward pass out wide runs out of play.
19: Milner picks up the ball on the edge of area and plays a neat one-two with Firmino that looks to have put him through on goal, but Monreal intercepts for the Gunners.
15: Coutinho threads Robertson in behind Bellerin and the Scot whips an enticing ball into the area which Koscielny brilliantly blocks before it finds Firmino.
14: Salah has a run at Maitland-Niles down the left, cuts inside and picks out Coutinho on the edge of the area, but his left-footed effort drifts wide of the target.
13: SUB! So Liverpool forced into an early change with Henderson unable to continue. As expected, James Milner replaces the Reds skipper.
12: SHOT! Liverpool are momentarily down to 10 while Milner gets changed, but they maintain an attacking threat as Mane’s drive at the end of a bursting run deflects off Firmino and into the arms of Cech.
9: Cause for concern on the Liverpool bench as their captain Jordan Henderson goes down clutching his hamstring. James Milner races off the bench to warm up and it looks like Henderson’s night is over inside 10 minutes.
 7: Maitland-Niles gets the better of Salah in his first duel with the in-form Liverpool man, but he just takes a touch too many, playing it behind for a corner. Thankfully for the youngster, Cech rises high to gather the set piece into the Arsenal area.

5: Arsenal come forward against Sanchez’s deflected effort loops into the air to keep Liverpool on the back foot. It’s then worked to Xhaka on the edge of the area but he fires a tame effort wide.

3: End-to-end stuff here as Lacazette tries to bundles his way through the Liverpool defence before he is dispossessed and a lofted long ball nearly breaks for Salah.

2: Intriguing start to the game as both sides frantically close each other down in midfield as they jostle for control. Liverpool are renowned for their blistering starts against Arsenal in recent years but the Gunners have done well to address that.
