During the second half, Liverpool upped the gear a little bit after Holding fell Diogo Jota inside the penalty box- Mohammed Salah failed to convert from the spot.

Jürgen Klopp made a tactical substitution for Roberto Firmino which proved key to Liverpool’s revival as Alexander-Arnold, popped up with a massive moment to plant a cross onto the head of the Brazilian. The game was level!

Arsenal is on top having collected 73 points while Liverpool sits eighth with 44 points.
