Jurgen Klopp's side travel to the Emirates this weekend to face Arsenal in the Premier League, where they are four points ahead of Unai Emery's side.

"He couldn't defend us in the first half, we had to help with that by missing our chances", he added. "Certainly none of the 'Big Six".

Liverpool, who face Fulham at Anfield next Sunday, are now top of the table ahead of title-favourites, Manchester City, although Pep Guardiola's men are widely expected to take all three points from their game with Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal won 11 games in a row before they drew at Crystal Palace on Sunday but they have not played a top side since they lost to Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored more league goals than any of Liverpool's renowned front three, while Alexandre Lacazette has also impressed.

"This team three seasons ago, they were playing in the final of the Europa League", Emery said. Superbly led by Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool have been thrifty all season and have only conceded four goals in 10 games.

"It is like it is, and hopefully it stays like this until the end of the season".

"The second goal is a good move by them, then he has done his best to bounce it on the floor and kick it over the bar. It's not like that this year", Klopp said.

On paper, you would favour Liverpool. Klopp really seems clueless about it, and that's why I miss Buvac. They have deserved it.

James Milner's powerful strike just after the hour, drilled home after Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno's clearance rebounded off Rob Holding, looked to have put unbeaten Liverpool on course for victory. Arsenal has some good players, and you saw against Leicester City the other week what can happen when they get on a roll. He hasn't given any books to Arsenal's players so far, although that may be coming soon.

For those who like historical stats, the goal totals in the last five meetings between these two have been 6-4-4-7-6.

Came on in the second half stoppage time to save a point for the Reds.

"Maybe today we are more near those teams".

With all that in mind, Liverpool/Draw is worth a dabble at [16].

- Liverpool are unbeaten in their opening 11 matches to a Premier League campaign for the first time since 2007-2008.

With Bellerin doubtful, Stephan Lichtsteiner is expected to start at right-back, while midfielder Granit Xhaka will once again deputize as the left-back for the Gunners.
