As a football fan you would love watching games like this and as an Arsenal fan you would like the win them at the same time and we nearly did.
Positives of our performance outweighed the negatives. It was impressive the way we stood up to the challenge of Liverpool’s high intensity play. We gave away avoidable goals but the team did not let that drop their heads despite Liverpool having a very good first 20 minutes or so.
Apart from missing an incredible sitter, Giroud had an excellent game, by leading the line very well, defending from the front and scoring two goals. His second goal was just a joy to watch, exquisite touch, turn and a curler.
A point away to Liverpool is not a bad result and the mental strength of our team was there for all to see which should stand us in good stead for the second half of the season.
