  • James Milner: Liverpool must be 'more boring' when leading

Playing each other on a Friday night for the first time in 28 years, this encounter might not be as significant as Arsenal's last-gasp win over Liverpool in 1989 which helped them clinch the league title, but it wasn't less thrilling by any means.

Roberto Firmino has been involved in six goals in five Premier League appearances against Arsenal (four goals, two assists) - however, the Brazilian has neither scored nor assisted in two matches at the Emirates.

The Gunners had trailed 2-0 after Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah goals but Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil found the net to stun the Reds.

Firmino made sure Liverpool returned north with a point with a 71st minute equaliser but Juergen Klopp was left scratching his head at how his side squandered two points.

"On the whole, we had more chances, so yes, of course it feels not too cool".

"It's not in this case [about] the team defending". [There was] misjudgement around the second goal.

"The result is not what we wanted, but the performance for 89 minutes was what we wanted". We are always a better side when we draw.

However the Liverpool manager also admitted that his team may need to be pragmatic in their approach in future. You need to be angry with yourself, not sad or insecure.

Liverpool now sit in fourth behind Chelsea, although there has been little to split between them and Arsenal this season, with both teams impressive from an attacking perspective but suspect defensively.

"And then in this odd game, everybody probably thought first, "this is Liverpool's night" and then after these five minutes everybody thought "now it's Arsenal's night".

"If you know someone is faster than you, don't give them any space, get tight and prevent them from having an opportunity to use their pace".

"But tonight it is different".
