Liverpool holds high-flying Arsenal away, stays unbeaten in Premier League

Robert Firmino - who had scored in Liverpool's previous three games against Arsenal - could not dominate.

After shaky goalkeeping from Leno allowed Milner to put the visitors ahead, substitute Alex Iwobi helped Arsenal fight back as he set up Lacazette's goal with a clever through-ball.

"They had a few chances for sure and they are in a good moment, but we were not at our best".

Arsenal shook off their habit of getting off to slow starts in games as they came out attacking from the start and had the lion's share of chances in the first half - although Liverpool often looked unsafe on counters and hit the post through Virgil van Dijk before the break, while Sadio Mane's goal was questionably ruled out for offside.

It may seem a harsh observation after Wenger's reign produced so much success and magnificent football but there is a sense of release emanating from many Arsenal supporters, who also enjoy Emery's own touchline body language, which was often more than a match for Liverpool counterpart Klopp's usual animated and vocal efforts in his technical area. But the home side couldn't find the opening goal they were after, and were punished for it on the other end. On the stroke of halftime, he had come for Milner's free-kick and got nowhere near it. For as impressive as it was going forward, the Gunners always looked vulnerable and should have been behind at the half. However, replays later showed that while Mane was in an offside position on the initial pass that led to Roberto Firmino's shot off the post, Mane wasn't involved in the sequence.

They say you don't notice something until it's gone, and that is a good thing at Arsenal this season. Jurgen Klopp was adamant the goal should have stood.

But Milner's goal stemmed from one of only a handful of chances Liverpool mustered in the second half. The one real hope for a title race worthy of the name this season is that Liverpool remains in touch with City despite being some way short of its best. It is not a bad point but we need more.

"We came under a bit of pressure and in the first half we probably didn't get it quite right - they switched the play and were really good at overloading on both sides", he added. "I don't feel like we dropped two points", the BBC reported that the German mused.

At the other end of the pitch, Henrikh Mkhitaryan nearly put the hosts 1-0 up, with the Armenian's header drifting just wide.

Realistically, a draw for Liverpool at Arsenal should be a good result.
