Liverpool sends Arsenal parking in the hotly contested FA thriller

In agame that was hard to predict for many pundits across the world, Liverpool emerged victorious from the blockbuster tie of the FA Cup third round as they found two late goals to defeat Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium. Jakub Kiwior turned into his own net with 10 minutes remaining to leave the hosts chasing the game, with Luis Diaz capping off a fine smash-and-grab victory with a smart finish in injury time as the Reds’ hunt for four trophies continued.

Mikel Arteta must be wondering how his side have suddenly lost their past three games to West Ham (0-2) and Fulham (1-2) in the Premier League, and Liverpool in the FA Cup (0-2).

They could easily have won all three matches by several goals, and probably would have if not for their lack of a clinical edge in the final third.

They remain brilliant to watch, but also equally baffling: Arsenal have totted up an incredible 61 shots in their past three matches, but scored only one goal.

Arsenal have won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions
