|Liverpool's Martin Skrtel (2nd L) scores a goal against Arsenal during their English Premier League soccer match at Anfield in Liverpool Authentic Karl Joseph Jersey , northern England December 21, 2014. A bloodied and bandaged Martin Skrtel headed home a last-gasp 97th-minute equaliser to earn Liverpool a 2-2 draw against Arsenal in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday.
Having bossed the first half, Liverpool went ahead through Philippe Coutinho, only for goals from Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud to leave Arsene Wenger's Arsenal on the brink of a smash-and-grab victory.
But Giroud's accidental kick to Skrtel's head led to nine minutes of stoppage time and the tattooed Slovakian centre-back claimed his revenge with a memorable header in front of the Kop.
"It was an outstanding performance. Our passing and movement on the pitch, which is terrible, was superb," said Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.
"At half-time we asked for more of the same with the same movement and then we showed great character to fight back from 2-1 down with 10 men."
But though the goal -- Skrtel's first of the season -- gave Liverpool's fans some much-needed Christmas cheer, it did little to improve their team's standing in the table following a run of only two wins in nine games.
Rodgers's side, who had Fabio Borini sent off, are now 17 points below leaders Chelsea and nine points below the top four, while Arsenal trail the Champions League places by four points.
Wenger, whose side had capitulated 5-1 on their previous visit to Anfield in February, said: "It was maybe a fair result, but we are disappointed to give a goal away with a free header from a corner.
"It's disappointing that we didn't even jump. You want everybody to be focused on the corner."
With Liverpool fielding seven midfielders in a 3-4-3 formation, which saw Raheem Sterling reprise his role as a 'false nine', it was unsurprising to see the hosts dominate possession from kick-off.
Steven Gerrard curled a free-kick wide in the early stages and Adam Lallana drilled a left-foot effort narrowly over after skilfully spinning onto a pass from Lazar Markovic.
After fielding a tame effort from Coutinho, Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny produced a decisive stop, spreading himself to thwart Markovic, who had been freed to run at goal by Gerrard's flick.

Markovic also whipped a first-time shot over the bar from a Sterling pass, before the breakthrough arrived in the 45th minute.
After Giroud conceded possession, Jordan Henderson played a pass into the feet of Coutinho, who threw Debuchy off-balance before drilling a low shot into the bottom-left corner.
There had been a sense of inevitability about the goal, but barely a minute later, Arsenal silenced the Kop by equalising with their first attempt at goal.
Alexis Sanchez's right-wing free-kick was half-cleared, Mathieu Flamini kept the ball alive, and Debuchy climbed at the back post to head home via a deflection off Skrtel.
Skrtel's misfortune continued early in the second period as he was left with a nasty gash on the back of his head after being accidentally kicked by Giroud, which prompted a six-minute stoppage in play.
Liverpool came close to scoring when play resumed, with Sterling slyly using his hand to knock the ball past the onrushing Szczesny before crossing for Gerrard, whose diving header sent the ball over.
But it was Arsenal who struck next. Giroud clipped Kieran Gibb's pass wide to Santi Cazorla and then exploited sluggish defending to meet the Spaniard's low cross with a shot that flew past Brad Jones.
Rodgers sent on Borini and Rickie Lambert for the closing stages and the former drew a brilliant save from Szczesny with a late header.
But after being booked for hurling the ball away when a throw-in decision went against him, he was sent off after catching Cazorla with a high foot.
Szczesny saved from Gerrard, but just as it looked like Arsenal would hang on, Skrtel met Lallana's right-wing corner with an emphatic near-post header to earn the 10 men a point.
In the day's other game, Sunderland claimed a dramatic 1-0 victory at Newcastle United in the Tyne-Wear derby thanks to a 90th-minute goal from former Newcastle youth player Adam Johnson.
HONG KONG, Oct. 6 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has been exercising ""Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong"" with a high degree of autonomy in strict accordance with the Basic Law since Hong Kong returned to the motherland, a spokesman for the HKSAR government said on Friday.
This demonstrates the full and successful implementation of the ""one country, two systems"" principle, which has been widely recognized by the international community, he noted.
The spokesman made the remarks in response to a report issued by the U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China on Thursday.
""Foreign legislatures should not interfere in any form in the internal affairs of the HKSAR,"" the spokesman said.
The Basic Law of the HKSAR specifies the guidelines of ""one country, two systems"" and ""Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong"" with a high degree of autonomy.
The previous economic and social systems of Hong Kong and the way of life have remained unchanged, and most laws continue to apply.
The Basic Law ensures the HKSAR has a high degree of autonomy and enjoys executive, legislative and independent judicial power, including that of final adjudication.
World Bank data show that Hong Kong's indicator of the rule of law, a core value of Hong Kong society, has jumped from behind 60th in the world in 1996 to the 11th place in 2015, well ahead of some major Western economies.
Hong Kong has gained 3.2 percent of economic growth on average each year since 1997, quite remarkable for an economy which was.
