Liverpool holds high-flying Arsenal away, stays unbeaten in Premier League

Arsenal have lucky escape as Sadio Mane goal is wrongly disallowed

"I think it was a good game, a hard game". I was actually waiting for Van Persie and Bergkamp!

Throughout Arsenal's 11-match winning run, doubters were saying "wait until they play a good side".

The team is largely the same as previous year, with only goalkeeper Bernd Leno and midfielder Lucas Torreira starting this game, having arrived in the summer.

The former Southampton man hit the woodwork and wasted several other chances as it took a James Milner drive from just inside the area to open the scoring against the Gunners.

"Arsenal feel like a completely different club under Unai Emery and one of the main reasons for that is that the fans believe in the team now", he told The Times.

Win they didn't, but Arsenal did at least display the "big mentality" asked of them by Emery - and for which the Gunners manager must take credit for instilling.

"The disgruntled atmosphere at the Emirates used to be a problem for Arsenal, now it's the opposite".

In a few short weeks, Emery's positive approach and perpetual motion body language has made the clouds roll away.

The Switzerland global has been a regular fixture in the Arsenal first team this season since Emery's appointment as Arsene Wenger's successor at the Emirates back in May. Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are very good teams and we have already played them all away and we are still unbeaten.

Emery's energy transmits itself to Arsenal's players and supporters. It was his cross which troubled Leno in the second half, forcing Milner's goal.

As the final whistle sounded on this superb spectacle, Arsenal's supporters acclaimed their players and radiated warmth as opposed to the ice-cold atmosphere that hung over much of last season. His goal at the Emirates was his 50th in the Premier League and it helped him extend his Premier League record for most consecutive games scored in without losing to 49 games.

It is very early days.

Ozil did not score or provide an assist but he did receive praise from sections of the Arsenal fanbase for the work he put in that sometimes goes unnoticed.
