Arsenal 0 - 1 Liverpool: Tops & Flops of the first half

Arsenal vs Liverpool

Showing the desire and assertiveness completely missing in the first half, Arsenal pulled level through Alexis Sanchez and Granit Xhaka by the 56th minute.

Roberto Firmino had the last say, putting the ball under Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech in the 71st.

"A point at Arsenal is a good result for most teams in the world but it feels not too good at the moment".

That means Alexandre Lacazette leads the line with Jack Wilshere in midfield and Ainsley Maitland-Niles at full back.

Arsenal will be without Aaron Ramsey as the midfielder is still nursing a hamstring injury while Olivier Giroud is also set to miss out after limping off with a hamstring problem against West Ham.

Firmino, though, spared his side's blushes with an equaliser.




Liverpool have improved since the defeat to Spurs, conceding four goals in nine games but Klopp warned his players that Arsenal - who lost 4-0 to Liverpool earlier this season - have the ammunition to punch holes in their back line.

Liverpool are one point better and one place above Arsenal on the log.

Wenger sent on centre-back Shkodran Mustafi for Nacho Monreal, but the fault-lines in Arsenal's defence were still being exposed.

Salah has delighted the Anfield faithful since joining from Roma during the close season and he reached 20 goals in all competitions by scoring in last weekend's 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth.

Liverpool is fourth with 34 points from nine wins, seven draws and two loses.

- Three strikes in six minutes from Sanchez, Xhaka and Ozil put hosts in front. "We have to take the good things and work on the lesser good things", the Liverpool boss added.
