Ramsdale produced two stunning stops in added time to deny Liverpool taking a late 3-2 lead in an incredible match which was filled with drama.
The Gunners, top of the Premier League and chasing their first title since 2004, looked in control after racing into a 2-0 lead with just 28 minutes on the clock.
But Jurgen Klopp’s side pulled one back through Mohamed Salah and after the Egypt international missed a penalty, Roberto Firmino made it 2-2 on 87 minutes.
But it could have got worse for Arsenal were it not for Ramsdale, who somehow tipped behind Salah’s 95th-minute strike after it took a deflection.
England international Ramsdale then produced another sensational save a minute later, leaping across goal to deny Ibrahima Konate from three yards.
‘Mixed emotions but over the next few days I think it will be a very good point,’ former Bournemouth and Sheffield United goalkeeper Ramsdale told Sky Sports.
“At least my saves have helped us out!” ð ð§¤

‘We’ve been under pressure for 35 minutes and get a point away at Anfield. They’re a top side. It might be two points dropped but we could have dropped three.
‘There’s no better game to play in than these games. At least my saves have helped us out!
‘I thought we were excellent. For 50-60 minutes we were very good but we got unlocked by two goals.
‘Now we have to go back in and build again. One point is a lot better than none.
‘The manager will say that [to focus on the good aspects]. He’s hugely positive. We’ll digest it in the next few days.’
Arsenal are now six points ahead of second-placed Manchester City – who have a game in hand – and the Gunners must still travel to the Etihad this season.
