Liverpool vs Arsenal: Dry as sticks James Milner picks out silver linings

Mohamed Salah is fit to face Arsenal

Can't be accused of going missing in this one. The sense of listlessness off the pitch, too.

Emery's decision to take off top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Iwobi had raised eyebrows, but this wasn't the first time his mid-game change has made an impact.

We all knew that things had turned sour under Wenger long before he was ushered off-stage at the end of last season, but it is has taken the sun to start shining again for everyone to realise how dark it became as the old regime staggered toward irrelevance.

DF Hector Bellerin, 6 - His pace down the right was one of Arsenal's main attacking outlets, but he lost track of Mane in the lead-up to Liverpool's opener.

They are. But given the relentless form of Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool this season, it is hard to put this Arsenal team in the same tier.

Arsenal benefited from a lucky escape in the first half of their Premier League clash against Liverpool as the officials wrongly ruled out Sadio Mane's early goal.

Liverpool went closer still to breaking the deadlock soon after when Firmino prodded Trent Alexander-Arnold's pass over Leno and against the post.

Victory for Emery's men would lift them above Chelsea into third.

Liverpool were under pressure for large parts of the encounter with Unai Emery's side until a formation switch at half-time saw them establish more control.

Alec Baldwin Arrested in New York, Accused of Assault
NY police detective Sophia Mason said the 60-year-old actor "assaulted someone for a parking spot that they were both going for". The actor starred in the movie Hunt for Red October and more recently in TV shows 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live .

"If you look at last season, especially away from home against the so-called top six teams, we didn't do well enough".

"The result tomorrow is very important but first I want to show them, to show you and to show everybody our best mentality in the game", he told reporters on Friday.

"Maybe after Manchester City and Chelsea, today we are more near those teams, but we need this quality in every match". Liverpool's trip to the Emirates, then, was a litmus test for this team and their apparent title hopes.

So how has Emery inspired such a swift turnaround from the malaise of recent seasons? However, Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno spread himself well to deny the Dutchman an unlikely goal. Xhaka's passing range was to the fore as well over the course of 90 minutes he appeared to enjoy, now freed from his recent toils as an emergency left-back. He broke up play judiciously, gaining possession 15 times without ever resorting to the rashness that makes for a weighty disciplinary record.
