If you look back on the game they probably had more possession but the clear-cut chances have all fallen to us.

'Today we controlled the game against a big club, against big players, and now we'll keep working'.

Liverpool recorded a 1-1 draw on the road away to Arsenal on Saturday evening in the Premier League.

A late Alexandre Lacazette equaliser gave Arsenal a share of the spoils at the Emirates on Saturday, after the Gunners played out an enthralling 1-1 drew with Liverpool. The second, maybe also we can lose in one moment and in the 90 minutes we could also have won in the balance of the 90 minutes.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said only "crazy things" occurring would force his side to do business during the January transfer market.

"You have a compact formation, you force [Arsenal] to pass the ball somewhere - that's pressing, it's not that complicated", said Klopp. Unai Emery's Arsenal showed they can hang with top-class opposition. 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.

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.

So how has Emery inspired such a swift turnaround from the malaise of recent seasons?

However, Leno did make some good saves in this match, too. Torreira, however, is a hugely important addition. Emery's determination to increase the fitness and work-rate of Wenger's players is now beginning to bear fruit, and those who were drifting last season are now pulling up trees.

It was Iwobi who would play a part in Lacazette's leveller, playing a precise ball into his path before the former Lyon man kept possession and bent home a precision strike. Xhaka's passing range was to the fore as well over the course of 90 minutes he appeared to enjoy, now freed from his recent toils as an emergency left-back. It eluded them once more, but their display was an encouraging one.
