Download Arsenal 1 – 1 Liverpool [Premier League] Highlights 2018/19
Arsenal 1 – 1 Liverpool – Alexandre Lacazette’s late equaliser extended Arsenal’s unbeaten run to 13 games and gave them a hard-earned 1-1 draw in a thrilling encounter with Liverpool at Emirates Stadium. Alexandre Lacazette’s 82nd-minute equaliser was his sixth goal of the season.
James Milner’s powerful strike just after the hour, drilled home after Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno’s clearance rebounded off Rob Holding, looked to have put unbeaten Liverpool on course for victory.
Lacazette, however, had other ideas and drew the Gunners level eight minutes from time with a superb finish on the turn after he had taken the ball away from Liverpool keeper Alisson.
The point puts Liverpool back on top of the Premier League but they will feel hard done by after a first-half strike from Sadio Mane was incorrectly ruled out for offside, while Virgil van Dijk hit the post with a header and forced a fine save from Leno after the break.
Arsenal’s persistence deserved reward despite those escapes and their display confirmed their development under new manager Unai Emery.
Arsenal 1 – 1 Liverpool | English Premier League – Match Highlights
- 61′ 1 – 0 James Milner breaks the deadlock to gives Liverpool the lead after Leno fails to deal with a cross. There is the breakthrough! Bernd Leno is the man in the dock for this one, Sadio Mane gets free on the left and puts in a good ball, but the keeper has got to do more. He just pushes it out to the edge of the area and James Milner rattles the loose ball home to start masive celebrations in the away end. Catch it, punch it, do anything but that Bernd.
- 82′ 1 – 1 Alexandre Lacazette levels with superbly-taken finish for an equaliser! Brilliant finish! That is superbly taken by Alexandre Lacazette! Alex Iwobi threads the needle with a great pass to find him in behind the Liverpool defence, Alisson is out off his line and closes the angle down. Lacazette looks like he’ll have to find a team-mate but instead he shifts the ball on to his right foot and absolutely thunders home the strike from a narow angle. Brilliant.
