Olivier Giroud hopes Arsenal's draw against Liverpool does not come back to haunt them. The French striker scored a brace in the Gunners' 3-3 thriller against Liverpool at Anfield. However, the north London club conceded a last-minute Joe Allen goal and Giroud hopes they are not made to regret their defensive lapse.
The 29-year-old was generally pleased with Arsenal's display in the eye-catching Premier League encounter. But he was frustrated they could not hold on to the three points. "I hope we're not going to regret that goal at the end of the championship. It's a good performance but we could've done better," he said, according to The Sun. "It's disappointing because obviously we were 3-2 up one minute from the end of the game. We should have been stronger until the end."
The draw means Arsenal are still top of the Premier League but they are only ahead of Claudio Ranieri's high-flying Leicester City side by virtue of their superior goal difference. After the match, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expressed a similar degree of disappointment with the Gunners' inability to hold on to their lead.
He told BT Sport: "I had no doubt about that [the character of his side] before the game. Of course it's always frustrating when it's 89 minutes and you get caught on such a simple ball. I think that's where we have to look at ourselves as that should not happen."
