Arsenal now closer to Premier League's best - Emery

Arsenal have lucky escape as Sadio Mane goal is wrongly disallowed

A return of five points from a possible nine from visits to Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal is already a drastic improvement on Liverpool's record of a single point from away games against top six opposition last season.

James Milner was the man who scored Liverpool's goal in their 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday and, according to Jürgen Klopp, it was also the midfielder who offered some stern words to fire up his team at half-time.

"Maybe after Manchester City and Chelsea, today we are more near those teams, but we need this quality in every match".

Arsenal and Liverpool have served up some crackerjack matches in recent seasons, especially at the Emirates.

Liverpool may feel slightly aggrieved however, after Sadio Mane's first half goal was chalked off by the linesman for offside.

It may seem a harsh observation after Wenger's reign produced so much success and magnificent football but there is a sense of release emanating from many Arsenal supporters, who also enjoy Emery's own touchline body language, which was often more than a match for Liverpool counterpart Klopp's usual animated and vocal efforts in his technical area.

Sarri opens up on Loftus-Cheek's strengths and weaknesses
The Rams scored a couple of own goals and we needed a Cesc Fabregas victor in the first half to ensure passage into the next round.

The Gunners, however, had the goal they deserved to celebrated eight minutes from time when Lacazette found space behind Liverpool's defensive line, evaded an out coming Alisson and curled the ball exquisitely into the far corner. For the supporters it is a great match and a good spectacle but I am only 50% happy because we wanted to win. Should have done better when Ozil set him up with a sublime backheel pass in the first half. Mane was then behind both ball and player when Firmino lifted it over Leno, rendering him onside for the second phase of play. They have one from us [the 0-0 draw at Anfield], if they get 89 more I have no influence on that. But at the beginning of the season, you had the feeling the fans become very uneasy, but the fans immediately pushed us forward. We scored 10 minutes from time. It didn't work, sadly.

If Jurgen Klopp's team had been able to hang on for the win it would have been a major step towards putting serious pressure on Manchester City in the title race, but the result still represents an excellent start to the season. He can improve. He can do better.

If they don't lose by more than three goals next week, I'll be shocked.

When asked what he thinks about the idea of a Super League, Emery said: "I don't know, exactly".

"A lot of small things have changed in the last weeks and month".

It's always disappointing to concede later in a big game, and that's something Milner touched on in the brief video, but the positives should also be focused on and there are plenty of those.
