Skrtel’s performance summed up Liverpool’s season so fa...More
Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel struck deep into second-half injury time to earn the hosts a point at Anfield against a second-best Arsenal side, reports BBC Sport.
Liverpool were by far the dominant side at Anfield, but they were guilty of slack finishing and even worse defending. They did take the lead minutes before the break, however, through the always-threatening Philippe Coutinho.
