The result means Liverpool, who managed one more shot than the hosts, will slip two points behind Manchester City if the champions beat struggling Southampton on Sunday.

A dubious offside decision denied Sadio Mane the opening goal and Virgil van Dijk twice should have scored when he was first repelled by Bernd Leno and then flicked a header against the post with the German 'keeper caught flapping. It was a slightly unusual game, one that Arsenal dominated for long periods and yet one which Liverpool had enough clear-cut chances to have won fairly comfortably.

However, in a run of 12 wins and a draw before Liverpool's visit, Arsenal hadn't faced any side that finished ahead of them in Arsene Wenger's last season. Arsenal look an emerging force under Emery, whose clearly-defined way of playing is starting to bear fruit.

Going forward, Liverpool were left to rely on moments rather than periods of sustained quality.

Boss Unai Emery will be pleased that Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac and Laurent Koscielny are all closing in on returns from injury and were pictured training yesterday.

Klopp, though, will bemoan his midfield's lack of control and incision, and his front players' lethargy.

So too will Arsenal. The 22-year-old summer signing from Sampdoria gave the ideal example of his value to Emery's team with a 32nd-minute interception to prevent the ball dropping to Mohamed Salah just inside the Arsenal half. We have to prepare the pressing better.
