Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Highlights (Video): Reds held at the Emirates

The youngster's development at Anfield has been one of Jurgen Klopp's success stories, but he looked out of place during Liverpool's 1-1 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Virgil Van Dijk also came close to breaking the deadlock but his goal bound strike was thwarted by Leno's point-blank save.

Liverpool travel to the Emirates Stadium looking to extend their unbeaten start to the Premier League, but face an Arsenal side that have won all but one of their last 13 matches in all competitions.

It would be fair to say, almost three months into his first season at the Emirates, that Emery has met such expectations.

Arsenal began the game on top but it was Liverpool that had the ball in the back of the net on 18 minutes.

Liverpool have now played four of the other five "big six" clubs, and have drawn three of them with their only victory coming at Wembley against Spurs.

"[We are] very disappointed really, which is a good thing I suppose, playing away at Arsenal".

It is early days and there will be bumps in the road as Emery imposes his new philosophy on Arsenal but if this was earmarked as the most severe examination of their credentials so far this season, they can be quietly satisfied with the results.

Neither side could find a victor in the closing stages as Arsenal remain four points behind their visitors in the table.

"I didn't know that was my 50th Premier League goal, which is nice, but it would have been nicer to get three points".

A point certainly felt well deserved and Arsenal easily could have scored more if they had been sharper in front of goal. "It's pleasing we are creating those chances, but we could have been a bit more ruthless and maybe not put as much pressure on ourselves not to concede to win the game".

But Emery's men showed intent from the off against their table-topping guests, bringing an intensity to the match which would see them finish having out-run and out-sprinted a Liverpool team famed for their hard work.

Arsenal controlled the ball with 62 percent position and Mesut Ozil was fantastic with his creativity, but there were some blown chances.

"We lost a poor goal from our point of view".

Substitute Alex Iwobi, who was switched across the pitch to the left flank shortly after coming on, slipped a smart pass through to Lacazette, who showed great composure to turn away from Alisson before bending in the equaliser.
