Unai Emery’s Arsenal side continued their record of being significantly better in the second half but left it late for Alexandre Lacazette to level the score after James Milner gave Liverpool a deserved lead.
Milner pounced on Bernd Leno’s clearance to the edge of the box and fired Liverpool into the lead shortly after half-time. It was no less than the visitors deserved after they had a dubious goal ruled out for offside in the first half and twice hit the post.
Emery shuffled his pack and introduced Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey to change the game and the former did just that. His incisive pass allowed Lacazette to round the goalkeeper, take a touch and curl in a late equaliser into the one part of the goal that Alisson or a Liverpool defender was not covering.
Jugen Klopp may feel like it is two points dropped given the late nature of Lacazette’s 82nd minute strike, but Liverpool rode their luck and were reliant on Virgil Van Dijk’s defending to keep Arsenal at arm’s reach.
