For a second night in succession, the Premier League threw up a 3-3 draw as Liverpool and Arsenal played out a sensational game in the wind and snow at Anfield.

Substitute Joe Allen's stoppage-time volley saw Liverpool claim a point in a thrilling game, which appeared to be heading in Arsenal's direction as they stormed into a second half lead.

The Reds were in charge early on when Robert Firmino found the net twice in the opening 19 minutes, either side of Aaron Ramsey's reply, in a breathless start to proceedings at Anfield.

However, Olivier Giroud made it 2-2 by poking a corner past Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet at the near post and the Frenchman swivelled before firing in a brilliant second early in the second half.

The good, the bad and the indifferent of Liverpool were on display in a game that had it all, with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp satisfied to see his team claim a point at the last, as he spoke to BT Sport after the game.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was reasonably satisfied with his side's efforts, although he was disappointed that they didn't collect the three points that could have been so crucial to their title hopes.

Meanwhile, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was disappointed that his side failed to see out the win, after his sparkling two-goal display.
