ARSENAL boss Unai Emery believes his side held the Premier League champions in waiting.
Alexandre Lacazette cancelled out James Milner’s goal to share the spoils at the Emirates Stadium.
The draw sees Liverpool climb to the Premier League summit ahead of Manchester City’s home clash with Southampton.
Emery was pleased with a point and believes Liverpool are a good model for his side to follow.
“If you enjoy it as a spectacle then it is good!” he said.
“For our result this point is not enough but Liverpool is a very good test and at the moment we are continuing to work and improve and we are nearer to this performance going forward.
“In 90 minutes there are a lot of moments to control the match. It is not a bad point but we need more.
“They can win the Premier League this season, they play the final of the Europa League three years ago and last season they were in the final of the Champions League – they are a very good example for us.”
Despite a promising performance from Arsenal, Emery admitted he is not fully satisfied with a point.
“We wanted to win but the performance is good, we push and we work the match, doing our tactics and with our supporters pushing us with energy,” he said.
“For the supporters it is a great match and a good spectacle but I am only 50 per cent happy because we wanted to win.
“Today the balance was good in our speed and intensity. We worked very well for the 90 minutes and the two goals is the difference in the match. This is a point and a draw, maybe we deserve a little more.
“Every match is a good test for us, it is very important we continue our process and not to lose, our test is Thursday against Sporting Lisbon and Sunday against Wolves, to be in a good position in the table.
“I think today the supporters pushed a lot for us and the players feel it on the pitch to help us and that is a good combination.”
Liverpool could have been leading at the half-time break but Sadio Mane’s tap-in was ruled out for offside.
It was a controversial decision and Klopp was annoyed that it was not given.
“There is only one person who can answer the question and that’s the linesman,” the Liverpool boss said.
“That’s football. If he thought the first situation was offside then I think he was wrong.
“But it’s not going to change and we made more mistakes than the referee. It would have been cool if this goal could count.”
