On one of the most dramatic ending to a football season ever, Arsenal's Michael Thomas scored the second goal with the last attack of the match!
Similarly, last season's 4-4 thriller was also hard to stomach as Arsenal virtually ended Liverpool's title challenge. What can be expected this season at Anfield?
Rafa Benitez have a full strength squad to choose from. Aquilani and Torres came through the Wednesday's Champions League match with a great workout. Another perfect game for Aquilani to start as he will have time on the ball to display his passing range and vision.
Arsenal's lack of height and physical power will help Liverpool as they will not succumb to even more set piece goals. Having said that, the Reds will find it tough to mark shadows as the Arsenal players are great with their movement and passing. Javier Mascherano and Lucas must be at their best to disrupt the rhythm and fluidity of the Arsenal players.
Rafa Benitez stated that he intends to focus on securing a top-four finish in the Premier League now that Liverpool is out of the Champions League tournament. Let's hope his tactics and team line-up reflects his statements.
