Both Arsenal and Liverpool may have picked up a point each in their recent 2-2 draw, but it was Brendan Rodgers side that completely outclassed and outplayed Arsene Wenger’s men, especially based on these shocking statistics.
Despite the fact that the Reds have been under-fire for much of the season, their performance led to the Gunners producing one of their poorest displays about 12 years.
They recorded their lowest possession rating (36.5%) since August 2003 while in addition to that, they also registered one of the weakness defensive ratings in 11 years, having faced a total of 27 shots coming their way.
36.5% – Arsenal’s possession figure vs Liverpool today was lower than they’ve recorded in any other PL game between Aug 2003 and now. Chase.
