EPL: Iwobi helps Arsenal escape defeat against Liverpool

Bernd Leno shaky, Lucas Torreira tenacious as Arsenal hold Liverpool

Alisson forced him wide, but Lacazette was able to turn and, having worked the ball onto his right foot, curled a shot into the far corner. Since losing the first two games of the season against Manchester City and Chelsea, a tough start for any new manager, Arsenal have quietly built confidence and momentum and went into this game on the back of a 13-game unbeaten run. Xhaka's passing range was to the fore as well over 90 minutes he appeared to enjoy, now freed from his recent toils as an emergency left-back.

And after the match, Klopp claimed to be confused over why Mane was ruled offside, instructing media to ask the referee why the goal did not count.

Emery, while insisting that a point is never enough, admitted Arsenal's performance against Liverpool showed good progress is being made at the Emirates.

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.

Milner has always been a reliable player throughout his career, but his importance has grown since his move to Liverpool.

Liverpool's own refusal to take a backward step helped the occasion, making this one of the finest Premier League matches this season, but Arsenal's fans reserved most of their appreciation for their own team. Arsenal kept at it and got a point.

"We have all that we need".

"It was intense, very intense".

Arsenal are expecting to finish in the Champions League places this season, meaning they'll nearly certainly have to finish ahead of both Manchester United and Tottenham. "But Liverpool is a very good test, and at the moment, we are continuing to work and improve".

"The start was like, "Wow, Arsenal are there" but then the first attack we had, everyone knew, 'Okay, they are not too bad as well!'" Good saves to deny deny Virgil Van Dijk in either half but also misread a cross which allowed the defender to head on to the post, and should have done better in controlling the cross that led to the goal.

"Maybe today we are more near those teams". We scored a really nice goal, had super counter-attacks, played good football in a lot of moment.

The Express reports that Bayern have now joined the race and are among the favourites for his signature as they look to bring the 27-year-old to the Bundesliga. I think this is the day Arsenal show some big cracks. I was actually waiting for Van Persie and Bergkamp!

Lacazette ran on to a pass from Alex Iwobi in the 82nd minute and held off goalkeeper Alisson, creating enough space to fire a hard shot into the far corner.

This staggering tally of goals in unbeaten games has stretched a whopping 16 years for five clubs - Liverpool, Man City, Aston Villa, Newcastle, and Leeds - dating back to 2002 when he bagged his first goal for Leeds at the tender age of just 16.
