I was waiting for Van Persie and Bergkamp - Klopp lauds Arsenal attack

Sebastian Caceres

The Merseysiders were noticeably less intense than usual at the Emirates, though did take the lead shortly after the restart through Milner only to be pegged back late on by Alexandre Lacazette.

It could have been a different story had Mane's effort being allowed to stand, but the Liverpool attacker was flagged for offside when he tapped in the rebound from Roberto Firmino's shot which had hit the post.

Klopp said: "I think it was a goal, it should have been a goal". Despite being offside when the initial through ball was played, Mane was not interfering with play and therefore provided a lucky escape for Arsenal.

Striking a frustrated tone, Klopp went on: "Actually it was a brilliant attack, it's what you do on the training ground".

The point took Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League but they will drop to third if Chelsea and champions Manchester City win their respective games against Crystal Palace and Southampton on Sunday.

Salah's performances at the start of this season have been forensically analysed as many are claiming that he can't possibly repeat last season's stellar form, but he's still managed seven goals in all competitions as Liverpool have started the season well. "I knew before it would be hard".

"Every player works a lot, and it's very important for our balance that we have two midfielders like Xhaka and Torreira, because the balance in midfield is also important for our balance in defence and our balance offensively". "We felt we had the quality to play (against) the top of the league tonight", said Lacazette. "We never give up, we'll keep going and get what we deserve".

"It was a good game but defensively we did come under a bit of pressure, especially in the last 10 minutes when they equalised, but we managed to stay strong". "But the spirit is what we want". The progress takes time, a long time in football is very hard to demand.

Despite his team's uncharacteristically bold start, Emery still managed to engineer an urgency in the second half that, in little more than three months at Arsenal, has become the animated Spaniard's calling card. Instead of wilting at the occasion they showed courage, and it nearly paid off in the opening exchanges when Sead Kolasinac's overlapping run and cross teed up Alexandre Lacazette to draw an early save from Alisson.

"Honestly, we are not thinking about Man City or any other team", he added.
