On Friday, the Emirates stadium in London played host to one of the most thrilling premier league matches of the season as Arsenal and Liverpool played out a frantic 3-3 draw.
Arsenal were down by two goals early in the second half but a few minutes of breathtaking display saw Arsenal produce 3 exotic goals to pull a shock lead.
Of the three goals, one caught the eyes of the fans the most – Arsenal’s second goal scored by Granit Xhaka.
Goal of the season so far by Xhaka.
