Liverpool scored a dramatic equaliser in the last minute to earn a 3-3 draw against Arsenal in their English Premier League match at Anfield Wednesday.

Joe Allen was the hero for the home team as he struck a volley into the net to deny Arsenal a win and a two-point lead in the championship.

Arsenal are now level on points with Leicester City who won 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur. Manchester City are three points behind in third place after drawing 0-0 at home to Everton.

The Liverpool-Arsenal encounter began on a frantic note as the hosts struck in the 10th minute through a goal by Roberto Firmino. Arsenal though equalised in only four minutes as Aaron Ramsey scored from a through-ball by Joel Campbell.

Just five minutes later Firmino again scored to restore the hosts' lead. Liverpool couldn’t hold on to their lead for long, as Olivier Giroud equalised in the 25th minute.

The French striker scored his second in the 55th minute to help Arsenal take a 3-2 lead. Just when it looked that Arsenal had sealed a memorable win, Allen scored a dramatic late equaliser.
