Hard to argue with the result - weren't good enough to deserve the win today, and Arsenal didn't deserve to lose it. That said, fucking shocking decision by the linesman to disallow a perfectly good goal, as luck wasn't with us hitting the post twice.

Gini had his worst game of the season so far, and Trent looked miles off.

Never seen Klopp so negative before! Should have taken either one of our midfield trio off for the Shaq attack once Arsenal made their last throw of the dice.

Happy with a point away from home against a much improved Arsenal team. Great goal from them, no blame on Allisson from me, he'd have looked stupid if he hadn't have come out and the ball ended up in the back of the net with a well angled shot.

Easiest MOTM decision for a long while. VVD did his job and Fabinho's and Firmino's nearly very well.

One to forget.
Alisson - all over the place today.
Taa was poor
Fabinho dreadful
Front 3 looked devoid of any ideas

Still, last season we’d lose that.
On to the next game

For neutrals it was a good game.
Won't say the same for us. Still lots of work to do. Doesn't help the fact that we start everygame with ref being in the opposition team.

Thought Fabinho was our worst player today.He seemed to find the pace of the game difficult to keep up with,putting more pressure on our mids and defense.

Needed a top performance and didn’t get one.

Thought the last two results were a sign of things to come but slipped back into second gear again which is really annoying.

Linesman has a shocker and as per usual it was to our disadvantage.

vd clearly mom..milner and mane werent too bad,thought taa was poor,as was fabiniho,salah just cant get it together.
i think we played pretty much as we have all season.a bit unlucky with the disallowed goal,but i think a point away to an in form arsenal isnt too bad,but i still think we just arent playing that well and i cant see us ever getting back to the exciting play of last season and i really dont think we will win the league,but at least we are top for now.

We are still struggling to find balance between attacking effectively and defending well. I am delighted that we can defend resolutely but the lack of cohesion upfront is not fun to watch and feels like goals could dry up any moment.

I struggle to see why we weren't playing the high press today. Yes we need to save legs for the end of the season but sometimes the fixture is tailor made for gegenpress and that was today.

A fair result today. Yes we had a goal disallowed but they were a bit better than us tonight.
Robertson motm for me. TAA,Fabinho,were awful today.

Not sure how to feel. We were poorish today and escaped with a point but we were also leading so late in the game

Fabinho was a bit casual. Ball/play watching. Trent had a couple dodgy moments too.

Mane was ok today. Put in a shift in both attack and pushed back and won ball back a few times.

Milner got my vote for the goal. That's it.

Wijnaldum, with all the plaudits he had been getting, better than this, more technical than that, where was he in the second half? Relied heavily on Salah, bad sub from the manager and Alexander-Arnold defending was bad today. Our final 3rd passing needs a lot of polishing and so is our finishing. Not good enough.

Please no more of "we didn't play well, but unbeaten, marks of champions", please. By tomorrow, we might be 3rd. So let's not talk about winning the title when we keep playing this way. Wayward passing, no fluidity and lack in finishing. We didn't even defend well enough.

Perplexed at the negativity...like Arsenal were just going to let us walk all over them. Adding in the fact that we hit the post and had a goal incorrectly disallowed and it's just one of those nights.

It's a fair result. We aren't at our best but we're still picking up points. 8-3-0 is still a brilliant start.

Lots of water to flow under the bridge. It's a marathon.
