Unai Emery is addressing Arsenal's big-game failings

Unai Emery is addressing Arsenal's big-game failings”

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah is still struggling from an injury and looks a pale shadow of the player who took England by storm previous year, according to Martin Keown.

Emery's Sevilla beat Liverpool in the final of the Europa League in their first season under Jurgen Klopp in 2016.

Klopp believes his aim of securing adequate depth throughout the Liverpool squad was achieved in the summer following the additions of Alisson, Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita and Fabinho.

And Robertson accepts it was frustrating for the Reds to leave Arsenal without what would have been a third consecutive win in the Premier League.

Salah and his side will get the chance to rebound quickly, with the club in action again on Tuesday when they will face a Champions League clash against Red Star Belgrade. Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool have all had flying starts and we're right on their tails. "I know if we have a very big mentality in the game and a very big performance individually and collectively - and also we need some luck - then I think we can win".

The manner in which he took his goal exemplified everything that makes him such a good player.

"It was very intense". It is clear Arsenal are in a very good moment. That's football. If he thought the first situation was offside then I think he was wrong, but it's not going to change and we made more mistakes than the referee.

On the pitch they were tremendous, with Ozil pulling the strings, Aubameyang and Lacazette putting hearts in mouths in the Liverpool defence, and Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira holding down the midfield with a dogged display.

Granit Xhaka fired too close to Alisson from a well-worked corner, but the Brazilian worldwide was fortunate when he rushed from his goal and was beaten to a floated cross by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, whose header drifted inches wide.

"If you remember, when I scored a goal against West Ham earlier in the season I was offside and that goal counted".

Arsenal will have counted themselves fortunate to go in level at the interval after Liverpool enjoyed the better of the first half, with Virgil van Dijk hitting the post immediately before half time.

Leno didn't get so lucky with his next mistake as he palmed Mane's unsafe cross back into the heart of the box and Milner drilled into the unguarded net.

And during a post-game interview, Milner was asked what taking five points from games against City, Chelsea, the Gunners and Tottenham says about the progress made under Klopp - and his reply was a characteristically Yorkshireman one.

Scoring a crucial late goal against a rival is one of the best feelings for any footballer - and Hector Bellerin did not hide his emotions after Lacazette's strike on Saturday. It's not nice, but of course a point at Arsenal will always be an absolutely good result.
