Arsenal draws the longest end in spectacular topper against Liverpool

Arsenal beat Liverpool impressively on Sunday evening. After a spectacular ninety minutes, it turned 3-2 in North London. Arsenal therefore remains a leader in the Premier League.
Arsenal started the game against Liverpool with the usual eleven names. Bukayo Saka thus played in the attack with Brazilian duo Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli. Near Liverpool, Darwin Núñez was allowed to start at the tip of the attack. Kostas Tsimikas played on left back and Joel Matip was at the heart of the defense alongside Virgil van Dijk.
The game was less than a minute old when the first goal had already been scored. Martinelli took the ball at lightning speed and worked 1-0 for Arsenal behind goalkeeper Alisson Becker. Liverpool had to chase and so did Jürgen Klopps team. In the 34th minute, Liverpools work was turned into an equaliser. Núñez shot in a cross by Luis Diaz and in doing so, the Uruguayan replied to his critics. Diaz was pulled to the side ten minutes after the assist due to an injury.

Even in the second half, the spectators did not have to wait long for the first goal. The second act was just eight minutes old when substitute Roberto Firmino shot into the equaliser at Jordan Hendersons instructions. Liverpool seemed to come back a bit after that goal, but it was Arsenal that got the lead again. Thiago Alcantara makes the foul against Jesus and the ball goes on the dot. Saka gets to unpack the gift and make his second of the day.
