No Premier League fixture has featured as many goals (home and away) as Liverpool v Arsenal (186)

Arsenal maintained their place at the top of the Premier League after a thrilling draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

Victory for either side would have put them on top of the table at Christmas, but they had to settle for a share of the points in an entertaining encounter.

Arsenal delivered the perfect start when Gabriel Martinelli headed home from Martin Odegaard’s free-kick after only four minutes.

However, Liverpool regrouped and were level after 29 minutes when Mohamed Salah thrashed a finish high past Gunners keeper David Raya at his near post after collecting Trent Alexander-Arnold’s raking pass.

In between, Liverpool looked to be denied a clear penalty when Odegaard handled, and after that, Jurgen Klopp’s side had the better opportunities, although the Gunners were always a threat.
