Liverpool claimed a credible 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Saturday but dropped to third in the Premier League after victories for Chelsea and Manchester City on Sunday. He helps us, not only me but all the players, with the small things.

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

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has declined the chance to heap praise on Nigeria International Alex Iwobi following his excellent cameo role in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

"Milly is like wine, a very good red one".

Iwobi, who has been at Arsenal since the age of six, made his 111st appearance in a Gunners shirt against Liverpool.

That sunny August afternoon the home fans bristled at the sight of veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech struggle to come to terms with the former Paris Saint-Germain coach's instructions to play out from the back. That doesn't mean Liverpool can't win the league.

An open first stanza had Klopp cutting a frustrated figure on the touchline, unhappy with the team's defensive shape.
