Liverpool 4 – 4 Arsenal : Premiership Classic

If you have any doubts why Premier League is the  best league in the world, then all those doubts would have been gone if you have checked out this match. The match had all the ingredients of a classic and till the final whistle, you couldn’t tell which team will win the match.

Liverpool knew they needed to win the match to put pressure on Manchester United as the title race gets nearer to the end. They were without Steven Gerrard but they still started strongly against an Arsenal side who had some young players. Arsenal were missing Adebayor and Van Persie and had the young Lukas Fabianski in the goal. It soon became evident that they were in for a busy evening as Liverpool started attacking from the beginning with Torres terrorizing the defence with his skill. Liverpool tested Fabianski on various occasions but they young keeper looked fired up for the occasion. They way they were playing, it looked a matter of time before Liverpool will score but it was Arsenal who took the breakthrough on 36th minute. Mascherano gave the ball away to  Nasri who beautifully passed to Fabregas who set up Arshavin to score the opener.

Chelsea And Barcelona to meet in the Semi Final of the Champions League

I had a feeling that the game between Chelsea and Liverpool will be a close one but i certainly didn’t expect it to end 4 – 4. It is a bit hard to see Chelsea and Liverpool concede 4 goals in a single match. Although most of the goals were because of errors, it did provide very much entertainment. Liverpool were without Steven Gerrard but they almost took the game to Chelsea when they scored those two quick first half goals and took a lead of 2 – 0 at half time.

It took an angry Hiddink to motivate Chelsea at half time and they responded after that by scoring the first goal thanks to a mistake by Pepe Reina and then Alex scored a thunderous free kick that could have been the best goal of the match to level the game 2 – 2. It looked the game might finish that way but there was some excitement left for the end too. Chelsea took the lead after a Frank Lampard strike but Liverpool responded quickly through a deflected Lucas goal and a headed goal by Dirk Kuyt. Liverpool were leading 4 – 3 with seven minutes remaining and needed one more goal to win the tie but Chelsea killed off the game after a Lampard strike. read more »
