The Gunners Get Fired Up in Liverpool Match
While Arsenal should have been celebrating their 3-2 victory over Liverpool, the win was overshadowed by a post-match brawl between the two clubs.
The two teams faced off against each other on Sunday evening, 9 October, at Emirates Stadium in London, England. One minute in, forward Gabriel Martinelli scored for the Gunners, with an assist by Martin Ødegaard.
At the 34th minute-mark, forward Darwin Núñez equalised the game by scoring the first goal for the Reds with an assist from Luis Díaz.
Just before halftime, Arsenals midfielder Bukayo Saka – assisted by Martinelli – earned the team their second goal.
Striker Roberto Firmino proved that Liverpool weren’t ready to back down as he made his mark in the 53rd minute, and scored the team’s second goal with an assist from forward Diogo Jota.
Tempers grew as the game continued, with Arsenal proving their assertiveness. By the 76th minute, Saka scored the final goal of the match due to a penalty shot.
However, the tensions between the two teams boiled over in the final minutes of the game, as the players came close to a brawl on the field. Neither of the managers have been allowed to discuss the incident with the media, but the Football Association will be investigating the matter.
