After taking a 1-0 lead achieved by Luis Diaz, Liverpool had the opportunity to further extend their advantage before halftime.

However, their wastefulness in front of goal became apparent when Bruno Fernandes capitalized on a loose pass from Jarell Quansah, scoring a bold goal to equalize after the break.

Adding to the drama, Kobbie Mainoo ignited jubilant reactions with a splendidly curved shot, yet Mohamed Salah’s calmness after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s foul on Harvey Elliott ensured Liverpool reached the same point tally as Arsenal.

However, Arsenal and Manchester City may consider themselves the primary beneficiaries of Liverpool’s chaotic finish.

In a separate fixture, Tottenham Hotspur climbed to fourth place in the Premier League standings after defeating relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest 3-1 at Tottenham Hotspur.

Brilliant second-half goals from Micky van de Ven and Pedro Porro propelled Ange Postecoglou’s team past Aston Villa, whom they still have a match in hand against.

Oli McBurnie’s last-minute goal salvaged a point for Sheffield United, as they held Chelsea to a 2-2 draw at Bramall Lane.

Despite Chelsea’s lead being restored by Noni Madueke after Jayden Bogle’s equalizer, Mauricio Pochettino’s side failed to clear their lines, allowing McBurnie to score.

While Sheffield United remains at the bottom of the table, Chelsea missed an opportunity to improve their European aspirations, currently sitting ninth and five points behind sixth-placed Manchester United.
