Liverpool vs Arsenal: Dry as sticks James Milner picks out silver linings

Arsenal vs Liverpool, Premier League: live score and latest updates

Arsenal shook off their habit of getting off to slow starts in games as they came out attacking from the start and had the lion's share of chances in the first half - although Liverpool often looked risky on counters and hit the post through Virgil van Dijk before the break, while Sadio Mane's goal was questionably ruled out for offside.

Liverpool were a threat, undoubtedly. If you look back on the game they probably had more possession but the clear-cut chances have all fallen to us.

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.

Liverpool were left "very disappointed" after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Arsenal, with James Milner calling for a "more ruthless" edge ahead of their trip to Red Star. The Spaniard won the Europa League three times in succession with Sevilla, including one against Klopp's Liverpool in 2016, and is a formidable tactical mind. Under Unai Emery, they finally have one.

Emery's work with this Arsenal team has been exceptional, and Saturday's comeback draw vs.

MF Granit Xhaka, 8 - A perfectly timed sliding tackle on Salah in the box set the tone for the entire team.

Emery enjoyed the free-flowing football that was on view from both sides at the Emirates Stadium in their 1-1 draw in the Premier League. "That shows the character of this team".

Baffert's Game Winner wins Breeders Cup Juvenile
While he's an unlikely victor on Saturday, he will certainly have the sentimental race fans among us in his corner. Godolphin's Thunder Snow, the Dubai World Cup victor , challenged late but finished third, 1 3/4 lengths back.

Milner opened up the game and was first on the scoreboard when Arsenal were having difficulties leaving too much space in between lines.

Unai Emery sent on Alex Iwobi on 68 minutes, and the Nigerian worldwide eventually set up Arsenal's equaliser, with Lacazette turning past a stranded Alisson before producing a fine finish.

Emery's decision to take off top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Iwobi had raised eyebrows, but this wasn't the first time his mid-game change has made an impact.

That also underlines the attacking depth the manager has at his disposal. "He's not really the same player". It's not nice, but of course a point at Arsenal will always be an absolutely good result. "But we need this quality in every match", Emery said.

And yet Liverpool had its chances.

But Emery spoke in the build-up to this contest about wanting to write a new history for Arsenal and in this fixture there were signs his players are embracing the new era, which will have been a pleasant birthday treat for their boss.
