Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: 3 things we learned

Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: 3 things we learned

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.

James Milner's opener arrived after the hour but Arsenal enjoyed plenty of encouragement in the Liverpool half throughout and belatedly got their reward through Alexandre Lacazette's superb equaliser eight minutes from time - preserving a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

Earlier, Marcus Rashford hit a stoppage-time victor as Manchester United came from behind again to continue their revival, this time securing a 2-1 victory at in-form Bournemouth. I watched Arsenal win 11 games on the trot, and they could have easily lost four of them, let alone drawn them.

But that run has largely been against the lesser lights - teams Arsenal were expected to beat - so the challenge against Liverpool was to prove that the revival since the opening two games has some substance to it. Milner's goal could have been a case of "here we go again", with Arsenal doing what they did under Wenger and caving in against the top teams. "It was clear Arsenal was in a very good moment", said Klopp.

Is it normal to feel sick after the flu shot?
People say it'll cut down symptoms by about a day or two, but, of course, if you have influenza, another day of grace is great. A burning fever, aching body, sore throat and runny nose are only a few of the most prominent symptoms of Influenza.


DF Rob Holding, 7 - Very good in aerial duels and coped well when dealing with Roberto Firmino in close quarters.

'We got a point, we deserved a point and we could have had more. We need more, in our work and tactically also.

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. 38 matches. It's very important when you play against City and Chelsea or against Liverpool. We didn't have that in the first half, but when we played we were immediately risky. Formation-wise I was not happy at how compact we were and stuff like that.

A combination of Bernd Leno and Shkodran Mustafi prevented Van Dijk from giving Liverpool a 23rd-minute lead when the centre-back stayed forward after a set-piece. "I think today the supporters pushed a lot for us and the players feel it on the pitch to help us and that is a good combination". We didn't have that often enough.

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.

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.

Klopp conceded it was an "intense" encounter but declared it a good result.
