  • Paul Merson says Arsenal will beat Liverpool

The 3-3 draw away to Arsenal brought the first half of term to a close, with Jurgen Klopp's side having played 19 games in the Premier League.

The Reds led 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium through goals from Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah, but three quickfire strikes and a comeback marked by Mesut Ozil put the Gunners 3-2 up.

The game is made extra special by the fact that Liverpool are only one point ahead of Arsenal in the table, and Kolasinac is aware of the stakes.

Firmino made sure Liverpool returned north with a point with a 71st minute equaliser but Juergen Klopp was left scratching his head at how his side squandered two points. When Xhaka took aim from 35 yards, the Arsenal midfielder's powerful effort appeared to move in the air, but it was still straight at Mignolet, who tried to make a fisted save but instead diverted the ball into the net. It felt like we shouldn't have conceded but we did.

"We had five minutes where we were very often had obvious problems and individual problems - all the goals".

The House approved GOP legislation in November extending the health insurance program's federal money for five years. Congress let the program expire in September, and states are starting to run low on, or run out of, CHIP money.

"Defending is a team thing". [There was] misjudgement around the second goal. Before they get on the ball, we need to be tight to them. It's the minimum that we deserved tonight.

However the Liverpool manager also admitted that his team may need to be pragmatic in their approach in future.

Liverpool FC will look to try and get back to winning ways in the top flight when they take on Swansea at Anfield on Boxing Day.

"And then in this unusual game, everybody probably thought first, "this is Liverpool's night" and then after these five minutes everybody thought "now it's Arsenal's night". You've got to be more boring.

"But tonight it is different".
