Arsenal and Liverpool played out a thoroughly absorbing 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium in a game from which several conclusions can be drawn—some perhaps new insights, some merely confirming what most already knew.
Despite the home side having far more of the ball, it was Liverpool who created—or in some cases were gifted—the better chances to score.
Luis Suarez opened the scoring early on and Jordan Henderson's fine solo run made it 2-0, but Arsenal were quickly back on level terms after Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott scored within minutes of each other.
Both teams ran out of energy and ideas a little toward the end of the game, before Suarez almost won it with a low effort at the death.
The result means Liverpool stay three points behind Arsenal in the league table, while the Gunners miss out on another chance to accumulate points in the chase for a top four finish.
