Meanwhile, Mohammed Salah, who had missed a chance earlier in the 34th minute eventually reduced the tally three minutes to the end of the first half.

Arsenal survived a scare in the dying minutes of the first half and the affairs ended with their edge intact going into the break.

That the second half was characterized with missed chances for the both sides, Liverpool were at a point handed an opportunity to restore the parity halfway in the second half but Salah missed a spot kick to the chagrin of Manager Jurgen Klopp.

Just as the Reds continue their onslaught on their visitors, substitute Roberto Firminho rose up in the 87th minute and headed in a cross from Arnold to level the score.

Still, Arsenal would have their Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale to thank for saving them further damage by denying the hosts two clear cut chances in the dying minutes of the game.

While the results see Liverpool keeping their 11 year record of not losing to Arsenal at the Anfield, the Gunners also left the game with a point in the bag although with a reduced their gap between them and Manchester City on the log.
