After a crazy first half that saw four goals in 17 minutes, we had to settle for a point at Anfield. We took the lead for the first time in the second half, but were pegged back in the 89th minute by a Joe Allen volley.
Here’s how we rate the players from our 3-3 draw with Liverpool:
GK) Petr Cech – 6.5
Not at fault for any of the goals, but perhaps could have done better for the first and last. They were, however, shots he never should have been facing in the first place.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 7.0
Defensively he struggled occasionally, but got well forward and began the attack that led to Olivier Giroud’s second goal.

LB) Nacho Monreal – 7.0
Although he perhaps could have been more vigilant for one of the goals, he had a great battle with Jordon Ibe down the left, and played well throughout.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 6.0
A few mistakes crept into his game, and he wasn’t his usual dominant self.
CB) Per Mertesacker – 6.5
You can’t really give a centre-back much more than this when you concede three goals, but Mertesacker made a huge number of great headed clearances throughout the game.
