Arsenal 1 Liverpool 1 - Late strike snatches deserved point for Gunners

"Today was a test of how we are against a team like Liverpool".

Lacazette shot wide from an acute angle before turning home Mustafi's header across goal, only to see the goal correctly ruled out as the Germany defender was clearly offside.

Virgin van Dijk also hit the frame of the goal for the Reds in an entertaining contest.

"We got dominated at times in the first half but we still got the first goal and that shows we are capable of still producing when we've been under pressure".

Unai Emery called upon the Wales global in all 10 of their Premier League games ahead of Saturday's visit of Liverpool FC, making six starts and four substitute appearances.

After last week's win over Cardiff City that took Liverpool top, before City beat Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night, Klopp stated that the number of points amassed was more important than league positions at this stage of the season.

But Arsenal levelled with eight minutes remaining when Lacazette reached a pass from Iwobi into the area in the right channel of the box and with Alisson drawn from his line, swivelled and clipped an effort into the far corner.

A Pentagon spokesman stressed that no final decisions had been made about the deployment of active duty forces to the border. They will bring border personnel "exactly where they need to be, regardless of the conditions", O'Shaughnessy said.

It was match commentator Peter Drury that said it, but the whole footballing world surely knows it and is taking notice of the football that Unai Emery has Arsenal playing this season, putting them back on the map at the top of the English game. "That shows the character of this team". But perhaps that isn't entirely fair for Liverpool; after all, this is an Arsenal side that has improved significantly since then, one riding a 14-game unbeaten streak. "He's not really the same player".

Liverpool looked on course for three points at the Emirates Stadium when James Milner gave Liverpool the lead shortly after the hour mark.

"Actually, I'm not interested in how many points Man City gets. We didn't do anything special, we expect from ourselves that we win football games".

They'd have ranked 17th in the Premier League if the full-time whistle came after 45 minutes in the Premier League this season, while Liverpool had the best record at the break, going into this weekend.

Arsenal didn't let this goal defeat them, as they kept probing. So, overall, it was a pretty average performance from Leno's point of view.

On the other side, it's been more than two months since Saints last won a league game (Sept. 1), their only victory in PL play this season.
