Anfield erupted when Martin Skrtel rose, unmarked, to head home a 97th minute corner from Liverpool to make sure that the Reds got something out of a game in which they deserved all three points.
Although Liverpool gaffer Brendan Rodgers can take plenty of positives from the Reds’ performance against Arsene Wenger’s side, questions still remain over whether the former Swansea City manager can guide the Anfield-based outfit to back-to-back Champions League campaigns – Liverpool have already crashed out of Europe’s top tournament this season, in a group that they were expected to easily progress behind Real Madrid.
As always, Rodgers was in confident mood and still believes he can guide Liverpool into the top four come full-time of the Reds’ 38th Premier League this season.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, Brendan – well, I lie; I love it – but history suggests you haven’t got a hope in hell!
