OTD Invincibles stage massive comeback against Liverpool

On 9 April 2004, Arsenal came back from 2-1 down to Liverpool at Highbury to win 4-2.

Arsenal found themselves 1-0 down against Liverpool within five minutes thanks to a goal from Finnish defender, Sami Hyypiä. Although Thierry Henry equalised 26 minutes later, Michael Owen made it 2-1 to the Merseyside team heading in at halftime.

Whatever Arsene Wenger said to the Gunners at the break made a difference.

Four minutes after the teams started the second half, Robert Pires put the score to 2-2, one minute before Henry scored his second of the match. Arsenal were flying and in the 78th minute, Henry completed his hattrick and put the game to bed once and for all.

Ashley Cole, Patrick Vieira, Lauren and Liverpool’s El Hadji Diouf all picked up yellow cards during the feisty affair.

It was Arsenal’s 31st game unbeaten that season and a boost for the club considering they’d exited the FA Cup and Champions League that week.

The Gunners would go on to draw four out of their final seven Premier League games that season but still finished top, unbeaten and above Chelsea in second place by 11 points.
