Arsenal come out fighting in festive thriller

Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil all struck, putting the Gunners 3-2 in front in incredible circumstances.

Reds goalkeeper Mignolet was at fault for Arsenal's second goal as he used one hand and produced a weak effort to keep it out - but Klopp does not want too much making of it.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, like LFC fans, will have gone through the full range of emotions during the 90 minutes at the Emirates.

Arsenal have now won just one of last five league matches and despite their spirited comeback, manager Arsene Wenger was left to rue age-old problems in his attacking game-plan.

Salah cleared up his relationship with his African team-mate Sadio Mane, saying that the Senegalese is his closest friend in the team.

The big surprises in Nicholas' team were the choices of Joe Gomez at right-back, Dejan Lovren in central defence and Jack Wilshere in central midfield.

Firmino should have done better with a pair of back-post headers from deep left-wing crosses but Liverpool opened the scoring after 26 minutes.

YouTube reportedly launching its Music Service in March
Amazon Prime Video finally launched for Apple TV a couple days ago , and the app is being featured heavily in the tvOS App Store. Apart from getting major labels on board, YouTube is also reaching out to artists seeking help to promote this new service.

Firmino, though, spared his side's blushes with an equaliser.

Arsenal is a further point behind Liverpool in fifth.

That Klopp's charges presented Arsenal with that possibility was unacceptable.

Here is how we rated Arsenal's players...

Salah's 21st Liverpool goal this season should have been the knockout blow, but incredibly it was the signal for an epic collapse from the visitors.

Sanchez, Xhaka and Ozil - villains for varying reasons on but on this night they swept Arsenal back into contention. Today we make individual mistakes and that is not cool.
