Liverpool went top of the league in 2009 as they drew in arguably one of the best games…from a neutral perspective anyway. Liverpool 4-4 Arsenal. The day Andrey Arshavin hit 4 past Jose Reina at Anfield. The game was a classic and will remain as one for the years coming forward.
Liverpool were behind after 37 mins when Arshavin opened the scoring but were soon 2-1 up after HT as goals from Fernando Torres and Yossi Benayoun put the Reds ahead. Arshavin got his hattrick with 2 goals in 3 minutes as he scored in the 67th and 70th rapidly. But, just as quick as Arsenal/Arshavin gave Arsenal the lead, Torres put the game back in the balance 2 minutes later. A very later goal in the 90th minute from Arshavin gave him his 4th as Liverpool looked to lose at home. But Benayoun got his second of the game and the points were shared between the 2 English giants. A game for the ages.
