Lacazette strikes late as Arsenal hold Liverpool

In fact last season, one would have to look all the way down the table to 15 placed Brighton to find the first team that drew more times than the Reds, whose 12 stalemates were an equal third highest, and they already have just one less (three) than Southampton's league high of four.

The Spaniard won the Europa League three times in succession with Sevilla, including one against Klopp's Liverpool in 2016, and is a formidable tactical mind. "He is improving. But also he has the ambition to do more". Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka's revitalization is proof of that. We made life a bit too easy for them in the first half. Fabinho has not yet begun to impose himself.

And, as Klopp was keen to underline in his own press conference, it was Liverpool who had the best chances on Saturday. That's OK. Our set-pieces were outstanding and we should have scored from them. He drilled it home.

Virgil van Dijk was unmarked in the box as he controlled the ball from Mohamed Salah's cross into the box.


According to the same story, the Welsh midfielder has accepted that this will be his final campaign as an Arsenal player after a 10-season career at the north London side. But, unusually, they were going toe-to-toe with a Big Six rival and might equally have taken the lead when Henrikh Mkhitaryan failed to guide his header on target with Alisson marooned.

The Senegal forward pounced after Roberto Firmino hit the post, and the goal was chalked off even though Mane was behind the ball when his fellow striker lobbed Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Of the Liverpool goal, Leno, whose diving intervention of a unsafe cross placed the ball at Milner's feet, told ESPN FC: "It's a bit unfortunate". Jurgen Klopp was adamant the goal should have stood. Seconds after Milner's goal put Liverpool in front just after the hour, a huge roar of encouragement swept around the stadium, not the groans of frustration that characterised those unhappy last weeks and months under Wenger and might have greeted a similar setback not so long ago.

"In the last match I have to say Derby played a very good match", he said. This, after all, is a side that specializes in transition and yet, for all that Arsenal pressed, it wasn't able to exploit the space behind it-itself testament to how effective Torreira was. Moments later, Firmino headed wide from a corner. You have a compact formation, you force them to pass the ball. It's not nice, but of course a point at Arsenal will always be an absolutely good result. "I don't feel like we dropped two points", the BBC reported that the German mused.
