While the top sides have made impressive starts to the campaign, defender Rob Holding believes the Gunners have done a good job to keep up with them - the draw against Liverpool leaving them four points behind last season's beaten Champions League finalists.

The opening goal of the game would come on the hour-mark, via James Milner, who blasted home after Bernd Leno had palmed away a cross from Mané.

Iwobi assisted Alexandre Lacazette's equaliser and popular portal rated him 7/10 for his second half show, especially when moved to left back, stating: "His pace was causing a lot of headaches for the Liverpool defence". "I didn't know that was my 50th Premier League goal, which is nice, but it would have been nicer to get three points".

Not once has he lost. Since losing the first two games of the season against Manchester City and Chelsea, a tough start for any new manager, Arsenal have quietly built confidence and momentum and went into this game on the back of a 13-game unbeaten run.

Milner unsurprisingly tops the pile for this particular statistic, which is unlikely to be challenged anytime soon. It was a collective effort, one which Emery played his part in with his passion on the touchline, and Arsenal deservedly levelled to claim a draw.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp surely rued the two dropped points, and he should.

Jamal Khashoggi murder: Turkish official claims body was dismembered and then ‘dissolved’
A Saudi national and well-known critic of Saudi rulers, Khashoggi was killed and his body dismembered on 2 October. Erdogan last week demanded that Saudi Arabia reveal the location of Khashoggi's remains and hand over 18 suspects.

"He wants to improve, and I think he can improve".

And, in first half stoppage time, Bernd Leno produced an nearly carbon copy of Alisson's earlier error by charging out in an attempt to stop a Virgil van Dijk header but misjudged the flight of the ball and was lucky to see it come back off the post.

The Reds travelled to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday with a more athletic, solid and physical duo of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez at the back.

"Milly was the one who saw it first and was quite - how can we say, was not happy - was animated. Again, that's another learning curve for us - to see those sorts of games out".

"I think it was a good game, a hard game".
