Player Ratings: Sanchez's off-day as Arsenal let lead slip at Liverpool

Liverpool's Martin Skrtel rose highest to head home in injury time as Brendan Rodgers' men drew with Arsenal.

Arsenal were lucky to leave Anfield with a 2-2 draw on Sunday. Their first-half performance was horrific, and the Gunners simply couldn't live with Liverpool's fluid passing game. When Philippe Coutinho gave Brendan Rodgers' side the lead on the stroke of half-time, it seemed there would be one winner.

However, goals on either side of the break from Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud put Arsenal in an unlikely leading position. When Liverpool went down to 10 men after the dismissal of Fabio Borini,...

Three Points: Martin Skrtel the hero as Liverpool earn a late draw vs. Arsenal

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Martin Skrtel goal (90'+7) Liverpool 2-2 Arsenal

LIVERPOOL, England -- Martin Skrtel's header deep in injury time earned Liverpool a deserved point against Arsenal. Here are three quick observations on Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Arsenal in Sunday's late Premier League clash ...

1. Skrtel saves the Reds

Highlights in Liverpool's season have been few and far between, and so the Slovakian defender's 97th-minute header qualified as one. It only rescued a point in a fixture that they had won 5-1 last season, but after trailing and being reduced...

For different reasons, Liverpool and Arsenal aren't meeting expectations

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth gives his betting odds for Arsenal and Liverpool, where he explains the best option would be to side with the Gunners.
Raheem Sterling, left, is managing the Prem pressure fairly well, Alexis Sanchez is thriving. Both players' teams, though, are not living up to expectations.

While Arsene Wenger was at least occasionally joking in his Friday news conference, Brendan Rodgers seemed genuinely abrasive. Gone was the charm so often associated with the Liverpool manager, so too the long descriptive lines about his team's style of play.

Rodgers was abrupt, to the point and occasionally on the attack. He was also defensive of some of his players, particularly Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli.

In other words, Rodgers was everything off the pitch that his team need to...

Five questions in advance of Liverpool vs. Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his side's Premier League game against Liverpool is a chance to continue their recent good form while praising Thierry Henry following the Frenchman's retirement.

Nick Miller looks at five key talking points regarding Sunday's clash between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield.

1. Will pressure actually help Raheem Sterling?

All the warnings about Raheem Sterling this season seem to have centred on his heavy workload and even heavier weight of expectation, with concerns that such pressure would burn out one of the brightest hopes of English football before he could really start. While it's true that Brendan Rodgers doesn't seem to have managed Sterling's workload...

Thierry Henry quits, Qatar eyes Prem club, FIFA to publish World Cup report

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains that Thierry Henry may be one of the best French players ever, after amassing 20 trophies in a 21-year career.

This week's biggest news stories of the week saw a true great of the modern game bow out, Manchester United step closer to another big-money deal and FIFA and Qatar do yet more wonders for their respective reputations.

TOP 5 STORIES

1. Henry deserves a big hand (Tuesday, Dec. 16)

Thierry Henry calling time on his playing career was widely expected, and that allowed him the time to stage-manage his announcement perfectly. The striker picked what could be predicted as a quiet news day to make...

Liverpool and Arsenal's defensive issues not an easy fix

The ESPN FC panel answer your twitter questions on Liverpool's top-four chances, Jozy Altidore's future and Chelsea's potential transfer window targets.

Liverpool's lack of attacking quality puts pressure on their defence; Arsenal's backline lets down their all-star attack. Both Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger would paint themselves as devotees of attacking football, yet each manager requires defensive solutions to save his season.

A frail defence cost Liverpool last season's title, as they conceded 50 goals (two more than 11th placed Crystal Palace.) While Arsenal lost any chance to challenge at the top when being thrashed by the clubs that finished...
