Morning all.

2-0 up and cruising. Alexander-Arnold and Xhaka have a tussle, foreheads locked and both get booked. The Anfield fans, previously silenced by Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus, woke up. Suddenly, there was passion coming from the stands which the home team fed off and from then on, either side could have taken maximum points. Salah missed a penalty, harshly awarded I thought as Jota initiated the contact, scored one and then Zinchenko let Alexander-Arnold by him before his cross found the head of Firmino for the equaliser.

What more is there to say really other than it feels like two points dropped. Liverpool fans will probably feel the same though because had it not been for Aaron Ramsdale, they’d have won. That’s football though, if a team doesn’t take its chances, it doesn’t win. Arsenal had enough opportunities to win the game too. One point from Anfield is better than none.

After the game, Mikel Arteta spoke to Sky Sports:

Wow. A really intense game. We started brilliantly, controlled the game and scored the first goal, and the second goal was a beautiful action. The game was under control until we conceded a really sloppy goal. Then the game changed momentum. We lost control after half time, lost far too many simple balls and it became a very open and chaotic game which they love. They could have scored three or four, missed a penalty and Aaron (Ramsdale) made a couple of great saves. But we had some big breakaways and could have scored two or three. In the end, the result is fair.The lesson is from the first 35 minutes and how we played coming to a ground like this and what we did. But we have to continue to do this regardless of the crowd and the result to go and look for a third and fourth goal.

I’m sure there was many an Arsenal fan wondering why Mikel Arteta didn’t make changes sooner than he did and why Jakub Kiwior came on when perhaps Jorginho was a better option if we were trying to protect our one goal advantage, but in the end, the reason we dropped points was down to human error rather than the changes. Xhaka has been excellent this season but yesterday, he showed his weakness and in my opinion, that was the turning point.

Another thing I didn’t like seeing was the time wasting by Arsenal players. I know other clubs do it each week but I always believed we were better than that. I don’t like Paul Tierney either because even without my Arsenal goggles on, it was obvious who he wanted to win the game and it certainly wasn’t the club from north London.

The race for the Premier League title isn’t over yet. Yes, one would have to say Man City are favourites but then I’ve always thought they were because their fixture list, on paper at least, is easier than ours. They have a lot more fixtures to negotiate but they’ve hit a purple patch at just the right time.

I read that the League title is now City’s to lose but that’s not quite true because we’re still six points ahead of them with eight games to play. Anything could happen yet.
