  • Arsenal have lucky escape as Sadio Mane goal is wrongly disallowed

Liverpool nearly went in ahead at the interval as Leno followed the earlier example set by his counterpart when he charged from his line and got stuck in no-man's land, with Van Dijk flicking a header against the foot of the post.

The Reds also looked shaky at the back, with the trio of Pierre Emerick Aubamenyang, Henrikh Mkhitariyan and Alexander Lacazette coming close to breaking the deadlock.

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.

Arsenal stayed fourth, although Tottenham Hotspur will have a chance to push them back into fifth when they play away at Wolverhampton Wanderers later on Saturday.

"I've said it a few times, my big, big, big assessment is: so far, so good", Klopp said.

The Frenchman was unable to end his Arsenal career on a high note following comprehensive loss to Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley last term before a 2-1 aggregate loss to Spanish side Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals.

While Liverpool only took one point from fixtures against those big four teams, they now have five.

"[We are] very disappointed really, which is a good thing I suppose, playing away at Arsenal". He broke up play judiciously, gaining possession 15 times without ever resorting to the rashness that makes for a weighty disciplinary record.

Liverpool tried a 4-3-3 in the first half and a 4-2-3-1 in the second, but in both it struggled to impose itself, hampered perhaps by the absence of either Jordan Henderson or Naby Keita (or both) in midfield.

After a tight first half, Liverpool broke the deadlock in the 61st minute as Sadio Mane crossed from the left and Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno was only able to parry the ball into the path of James Milner who blasted a low shot into the net.

"We lost a poor goal from our point of view. We never give up, we'll keep going and get what we deserve".
