Against Liverpool he was absolutely brilliant, keeping Mohammed Salah at bay.

2) Virgil Vandijk lack of communication

Virgil Vandijk the current best player in Europe, having had a stellar career last season and helping Liverpool to win the Premier league this season, lost communications with his goalie and eventually due to his errors last night, Arsenal got thier equaliser from Alexander Lacazette.

David Luiz last night was rock solid at the back, throwing bodies to every shot the Liverpool front three made against the goal post, although he has his bad moments in previous games but he is back to his best.

4) Alexander Lacazette tenacity

Struggling in front of goal and injury, the french striker has been brilliant ever since the restart of the Premier league season and his goal and assist in the game at Emirates where the Reds where defeated says it all.

5) Alison Becker errors

Currently the world best goalkeeper, his errors yesterday was responsible for the defeat after gifting Alexander lacazette the ball on a platter of gold to square it to Reiss Nelson.

6) Emiliano Martinez brilliance
