Arsenal Versus Liverpool remains one of the greatest rivalries the game has ever seen. From moments like the 8 goal thriller in 09′ when Andrei Arshavin scored four just for fun to when Michael Thomas grabbed the league winner at Anfield in 89′. Likewise, the 22/23 league title is Up For Grabs Now.
Travelling away to Anfield is no joke and there is a reason it has the stature it does but Mikel Arteta had his team working Eight Days A Week to show the rest of the world what they could achieve at Anfield when they walked through Shankly Gates with a clear mission of divide and conquer. Super Mik Arteta was looking to show Liverpool, there’s a new Fab Four in Trossard, Jesus, Saka and Martinelli.
If you didn’t know by now, Gabriel Martinelli is truly setting the standard. Gabriel Teodoro Martinelli Silva. Remember the name because he has shown he is a Big Game Player with 14 goals in the league and only one away from equalising Roberto Firmino’s record of 15 for most goals scored by a Brazilian in a single season.
Jesus has Risen on Easter Sunday and so it only made sense for Gabby J to score and solidify the Miracle of Arsenal going 2-0 up at Anfield. Unfortunately, the miracle did not last as The Prophet Mo Salah made his presence known after a scuffle commenced between Trent Alexander-Arnold and Granit Xhaka which inadvertently left the Arsenal team Hazey in the dying minutes of the first half as it was clear this Liverpool side has Packs and Potions up their sleeve.
This game was inevitably going to be A Hard Day’s Night for The Gunners and Mikel Arteta were feeling that when they conceded a penalty only for Salah to miss but lucky for The Big Reds, Bobbeh Firmino was brought on for one last hurrah. The only other place you find storytelling this creative is in Dungeons and Dragons. Ultimately, it is Pain and Gain for Mikel Arteta and The Gunners as they manage to grab the single point at Anfield. Game of the season without a doubt.
