Liverpool earned a 3-3 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates on Friday night in the Premier League. 

The Reds were 2-0 up against the Gunners, courtesy of goals by Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah. But the home side stormed back in a five minute period early in the second half, with three goals from Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil to take a 3-2 advantage. 

Liverpool eventually rescued a point just after the 70th minute when Roberto Firmino beat Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech to finish the scoring at 3-3. 


The draw meant that Liverpool maintained their advantage over the Gunners in the Premier League table. The Reds are still in fourth place, a point in front of Arsenal with 19 games played.

But a lot of Liverpool fans were not happy with one player's performance in the game on Friday. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet was on the receiving end of a hammering from the Arsenal attack, but many fans felt that the Reds' stopper should have done more to prevent Arsenal from scoring some of their goals.


Liverpool supporters took to Twitter to vent their frustrations with the goalkeeper. Here are some of those tweets.

Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp admitted that Mignolet made a mistake during Granit Xhaka's goal for Arsenal when he used only one hand to try and block the shot, but insisted that it shouldn't be made bigger than it is. 

According to the Daily Star, he said "he [Mignolet] misjudged it. A second hand would have helped but that is how it is. You don't need to make it bigger than it is. It felt like we shouldn't have conceded but we did. 

"Defending is a team thing. Today we make individual mistakes and that is not cool. My job is to think about the performance and that was a winning performance. If you want, the draw is our halfway win. We are always a better side when we draw. We have to take the good things and work on the lesser good things."
