  • Paul Merson says Arsenal will beat Liverpool

With the game scoreless at the time, the Liverpool captain attempted to chase down Mesut Ozil on an Arsenal counterattack only to pull up lame as he closed the attacker down.

Fourth placed Liverpool remain one point above fifth placed Arsenal after a Christmas cracker that underlined the qualities and problems with two teams who harboured title ambitions in August, but now trail way behind runaway leaders Manchester City. Liverpool scored the first two goals before three goals in five minutes from Arsenal, only for the Reds to equalize in a fantastic 3-3 draw between two of the best clubs in the English Premier League. We were too far from each other; we were not compact or composed enough.

Liverpool and Arsenal's frailties are not new. But there remains frustration among the fans and bafflement from outside observers regarding Klopp's faith in his defensive players, with Gary Neville suggesting the manager has to replace Mignolet, Ragnar Klavan and Dejan Lovren if Liverpool are to challenge for major honours.

The Gunners immediately responded with Alexis Sanchez scoring in the very next minute.

Brazilian Roberto Firmino levelled the scores again, but Milner has urged Liverpool to be more cautious in defence.

The Gunners fullbacks for the night - Hector Bellerin and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were often caught in two minds about their positioning as Arsenal hit the trifecta of shambolic defending - poor marking, lacklustre pressing in their own defensive third, and lazy clearances.

"They've scored three away from home at Arsenal", Carragher told Sky Sports. It felt like we shouldn't have conceded but we did.

But Liverpool being Liverpool - and Arsenal being Arsenal - there were always going to be more goals.

"Then we struck back and it's point; usually if you go to Arsenal and get a point it is absolutely OK, we are not insane that we can not see that. We will be disappointed not to win the game".
