Unai Emery aiming to help Arsenal 'write a new history'

The Reds were made to rue an incorrect call from the officials as Sadio Mane's first-half goal should in fact have stood - as shown here - and if it had been allowed, who knows Jurgen Klopp's troops may have even gone on to win the game.

Under Arsene Wenger, the absence of a player of Torreira's tenacity and industry nearly became a running joke in the final years of the Frenchman's reign. It is probably the most exciting season for years.

It is early days and there will be bumps in the road as Emery imposes his new philosophy on Arsenal but if this was earmarked as the most severe examination of their credentials so far this season, they can be quietly satisfied with the results. Arsenal put Liverpool under pressure immediately, with Lacazette forcing a good save from Reds goalkeeper Alisson inside three minutes.

Emery could face problems in defence, however, with full-backs Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac all doubts. Arsenal still need to eradicate those defensive weaknesses completely before they can start winning games like these.

As impressive as Arsenal's unbeaten 11-game run is, they haven't really played anyone particularly unsafe, or at least any teams who have put real pressure on them, during that time. After Saturday's game, Liverpool are left to play only Manchester United out of the Big Six. His substitutions also worked well, with Iwobi creating the equaliser after replacing Aubameyang.

The former Seville and PSG boss wasted no time in signing German global goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for £19.2million to battle for Petr Cech's position.


Arsenal began the game on top but it was Liverpool that had the ball in the back of the net on 18 minutes.

Gunners boss Unai Emery is probably kicking himself, too, for squandering the chance to celebrate his 47th birthday with a win.

"When you really look at him, he was really quiet today". It was a slightly odd game, one that Arsenal dominated for long periods and yet one which Liverpool had enough clear-cut chances to have won fairly comfortably. Can't be accused of going missing in this one. "I was not happy with the first half". Still can't get much reward for his work, though.

He believes Emery has won enough in his career - three successive Europa League titles and five major trophies at Paris St Germain - to warrant the respect his current 13-match unbeaten run deserves.

FW Alexandre Lacazette, 7 - Came to the rescue with a great strike after a fairly quiet performance up to that point. "We were better in the second half and were a threat from set-pieces". Those goals have come at key times.

MF Danny Welbeck N/R - Injected pace and energy as a late sub and helped create some late chances for the victor.
