Arsenal narrowed the margin to two points on Sunday by defeating Liverpool 3-1, adding intrigue to an already captivating Premier League title contest.
Arsenal earned the point, but they did not anticipate that Virgil van Dijk and Alisson’s terrible defensive miscommunication would help them out, as Gabriel Martinelli gave them a lead back in the 67th minute.
The Emirates supporters’ last-minute jitters were subsequently allayed by substitute Leandro Trossard, who won the match in stoppage time by shooting through Alisson’s legs.
