The fantastic football moment we don’t want to forget in a haste was the one that went down on Friday between Arsenal and Liverpool. The 3-3 Premier League encounter witnessed a whole lot of intrigues and interesting sport moments.
Christmas is supposed to be a time for miracles and, from a sporting perspective at least, the five second-half minutes that Arsenal produced to rescue this game was something close.
They had been comprehensively out-played, out-run and out-fought by Liverpool for almost an hour and were actually flattered by the 2-0 deficit. The two teams had seemed almost to be playing at two entirely different speeds and all the pundits that have dismissed Arsene Wenger as yesterday’s man in the face of a new breed of supposedly more tactically sophisticated coaches were clearing their throats for a familiar analysis.
Then upped stepped Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil to suddenly turn the match on its head and transform the atmosphere inside the Emirates Stadium from outright mutiny to pure ecstasy.
Liverpool did still gather themselves and recover to fashion a deserved equaliser through Firmino but, having been so dominant for so long, rightly felt most frustrated by a 3-3 draw.
