Crazy game at Anfield last night with Andrey Arshavin scoring four (see them here: one, two, three, four) goals for Arsenal but they still couldn’t hang on to win despite leading 1-0, 3-2 and 4-3. To be fair Liverpool were dominant throughout (26 shots to Arsenal’s 8) and but for some inspired first half keeping from Fabianksi would have wrapped it up early. As with many high scoring games, it’s often a case of defensive errors rather than spectacular play and you argue two of Arshavin’s goals could/should have been prevented whilst all four Liverpool goals were from Arsenal defensive errors really. That said, it was a very open, attacking game and probably more enjoyable to watch then the Chelsea v Liverpool thriller last week.
It’s not every day a home player scores four at Anfield let alone an away player. But let’s hope that his Arsenal career turns out better than the last Arsenal player to score four at Anfield! – That man was a certain Beast by the name of Baptista…
