Arsenal fight back for well-earned draw with Liverpool

Sebastian Caceres

Arsenal boss Unai Emery conceded some frustration after their 1-1 draw with Liverpool. We worked very well for the 90 minutes and the two goals is the difference in the match.

"We had some chances and we were unlucky with the one which was disallowed, but we got a point and we move on to the next one". "Long time", Emery said in his post-match press conference and while he stated this performance surpassed Arsenal's efforts against City and Chelsea earlier this season, he is aware there is still plenty more work to be done. "They can win the Premier League this season, they play the final of the Europa League three years ago and last season they were in the final of the Champions League - they are a very good example for us".

Liverpool's advantage could prove short-lived, however, as both sides are in action on Sunday, at home to Southampton and Crystal Palace respectively.

"I believe we were the better side today and that's how we must continue".

Realistically, a draw for Liverpool at Arsenal should be a good result. When we had the ball it was good, we were a threat, we were in behind.

"We struggled a little bit in the first half".

Arsenal started the game off well, although they failed to take advantage of their early dominance.

Liverpool were denied an initial goal by the most slender of margins when Roberto Firmino struck the post and allowed Sadio Mane to tap in, but the Senegalese was deemed offside - perhaps controversially - by the assistant referee. Under Emery, they're slowly starting to shake off the lethargy that set in towards the tail end of Wenger's tenure.

"Virgil said to me afterwards: "I should have scored a hat-trick" and he didn't even score one", said Klopp.

The Gunners, however, had the goal they deserved to celebrated eight minutes from time when Lacazette found space behind Liverpool's defensive line, evaded an out coming Alisson and curled the ball exquisitely into the far corner. I was actually waiting for Van Persie and Bergkamp! "It's football... it was a brilliant attack, so it's a pity it didn't count, but we made a few more mistakes than the ref".

In all, seven different Arsenal players created a chance, with Ozil - who showed off his repertoire of flicks and back-heels - leading the way by providing four openings for his team-mates. Although Emery's side embarked on a run of 12 wins in 13 games thereafter, they continued to begin hesitantly, with 26 of their 34 goals in that spell arriving after the interval. So we take it.
