Klopp: Liverpool made more mistakes at Arsenal than the officials

After early season defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea, the Gunners have recovered brilliantly under Unai Emery, winning twelve of their last thirteen fixtures in all competitions. To be fair, that away game at Crystal Palace was perhaps their toughest game of the 13 games in the run. But today the spirit is like the spirit we want.

Emery said afterwards he did not have a problem with his reaction and neither did I. As an Arsenal fan, I want to see our players disappointed when they are substituted, and it doesn't mean there is any conflict with the manager.

They can certainly test unbeaten Liverpool in Saturday evening's showdown at the Emirates Stadium, says Andy Schooler. In defence, it is a completely different matter.

Alex Ferguson was in the midst of one of the most successful periods of his United tenure, Jose Mourinho was the Chelsea manager and Ireland's management duo were in charge of top flight clubs; Roy Keane with Sunderland and Martin O'Neill with Aston Villa. No wonder that both the teams that share the trait also share the top spot in the table. But Rush believes it is crucial the likes of Liverpool keep the pressure on City until the latter stages of Europe's elite tournament get under way.

Cech is likely to get the nod ahead of the German though, due to his superior experience in these high-pressure games. "Even Tottenham, even though they lost, they're still contenders for the title".

But that run has largely been against the lesser lights - teams Arsenal were expected to beat - so the challenge against Liverpool was to prove that the revival since the opening two games has some substance to it. Milner's goal could have been a case of "here we go again", with Arsenal doing what they did under Wenger and caving in against the top teams.

"They can win the Premier League this season".

Recently, however, the Reds have been rampant against the Gunners.

In contrast to their last visit to the Emirates when they conceded three times in five minutes, Liverpool needed to show their new-found defensive resolve as a confident Arsenal started the brighter. Tuesday's League Cup home game against Southampton came too soon for Leicester, who postponed the tie to allow more time for the city to come to terms with the accident.

"Arsenal brought pretty much all of their strikers [on]..." But, they have never been leading at halftime, suggesting that the bulk of their scoring has been happening in the second half. Jurgen Klopp was adamant the goal should have stood. Only Mourinho (12) and Gerry Francis (8) will have waited more for their first defeat against Arsenal.

Unai Emery would not allow himself to bask in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Liverpool because he thought Arsenal should have won. "The result is not important, but our desire to give our best to honour our chairman, that is the most important thing", Puel said. After a big summer at the World Cup with Belgium, it appears some fatigue may be setting in for Lukaku who has scored 31 goals in 65 games in all competitions for United since arriving from Everton a year ago.

"Their development was to last season play the final in the Champions League".

"Liverpool have no interest in signing Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey".

Murphy added: "I've really liked seeing the Gomez and van Dijk partnership come together this season". 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.

Emery could be without a host of first-choice defenders with Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac and Sokratis Papastathopoulos all to be assessed before the game. I need also to smile at other moments.
