Arsenal vs Liverpool, Premier League

04 November 2018

Arsenal's French striker Alexandre Lacazette (C) celebrates with teammates after scoring his team's first goal during the English Premier League football match between Arsenal and Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium in London on November 3, 2018.

Klopp's Liverpool are now second on the Premier League table only on goal difference.

MF Lucas Torreira, 8 - A one-man wrecking crew in midfield at times, throwing himself about to win the ball back and constantly looking to instigate attacks.

"It's not nice of course, but a point at Arsenal will always be a good result", surmised Klopp.

In contrast to their last visit to the Emirates when they conceded three times in five minutes almost a year ago, Liverpool needed to show their new-found defensive resolve as a confident Arsenal started and finished the brighter.

"These two matches are so far and also so close", he said.

Even allowing for some erratic Mkhitaryan contributions, Arsenal's outfit players were a credit to their head coach. "That shows the character of this team".

Arsenal and Liverpool have served up some crackerjack matches in recent seasons, especially at the Emirates. "We have more mistakes than the ref, but it would have been cool if this goal could count!" There are doubts but we are going to wait to see if we can use one or another player in the full-back positions.

Emery's decision to take off top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Iwobi had raised eyebrows, but this wasn't the first time his mid-game change has made an impact.

That also underlines the attacking depth the manager has at his disposal. Shkodran Mustafi was impressive against Roberto Firmino, Granit Xhaka looked like a disciplined performer and Hector Bellerin has added defensive discipline to his game under Emery's guidance.

"They proved a lot of people wrong because they came out and had a real go at Liverpool and I thought they deserved something out of it".

"Progress is with time".

After early season defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea, the Gunners have recovered brilliantly under Unai Emery, winning twelve of their last thirteen fixtures in all competitions.

A host of Europe's top clubs are understood to be interested in snapping Ramsey up on a free transfer, including the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.

"It's back to back clean sheets, which reinforces our feeling that defensively we're in better shape than we have been", he said this week.

Emery, though, hopes his belief in Arsenal's new era can be underlined by a positive result.
