Liverpool slump further after home defeat to Arsenal

After ending their miserable Champions League campaign on a home defeat to Fiorentina, Liverpool lost another chance of reviving their season on Sunday as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat against the Gunners at Anfield.

AFP - Arsenal moved back into third in the English Premier League table and dented Liverpool's already faltering hopes of a top four finish by coming from behind to win 2-1 at Anfield here Sunday.

Victory left the Gunners three points behind second-placed champions Manchester United and six adrift of leaders Chelsea but with a game in hand over the top two.

Dutch striker Dirk Kuyt put Liverpool, already out of this season's Champions League, in front four minutes before half-time after Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia flapped at a free-kick.

But five minutes after the break the visitors were level when, after a series of deflections, Liverpool defender Glen Johnson put through his own net.

And just before the hour mark Russia international Andrey Arshavin completed Arsenal's fightback with a superbly taken, powerful, shot from just inside the box that gave Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina no chance.

Arsenal, who started the weekend in third place, kicked off in fourth after Aston Villa's 1-0 win away to champions Manchester United on Saturday.

This defeat meant Liverpool had won just three of their last 15 matches in all competitions and left them in seventh place, five points adrift of fourth-placed Villa and a top four finish that would secure Champions League football next season.
