Arsenal managed to extend their unbeaten streak to 14 games in all competitions after drawing 1-1 against Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

Liverpool took the lead through James Milner midway through the second half, only for Alexandre Lacazette to strike 10 minutes from time to ensure both sides shared the spoils.

Unai Emery would have undoubtedly taken a point before kickoff and he admitted it was a good result after the game.

"I am happy with our performance," he said, per football.london. "I think the balance in 90 minutes is more positive in the control against them, but it’s difficult not to let them have chances.

"You need a little luck in some moments and when we are attacking we need to find our goal.

"The result in the end I think is a good result after we were losing 1-0."

There were a number of impressive performers for Arsenal; most notably Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira.

The two dominated the midfield and were largely praised for their performances.

Much was said about Torreira. The Uruguayan defender had a slow start to life at Arsenal but has become an integral part of the side in recent weeks.

He was mightily impressive against Liverpool and Arsenal supporters commented that he was the player the team have been crying out for for years.

They definitely have a point.

And there was one moment against Liverpool which proved that idea.

An Arsenal fan has posted a brilliant 20 second clip of Torreira, where he more than proves his worth to Emery's side.

With Liverpool breaking, Torreira puts an end to their counter-attack with a wonderful sliding challenge on Mohamed Salah, before playing a perfect pass to a teammate.

Arsenal swiftly loses the ball, but Torreira shows great tenacity to make another wonderful challenge and win the ball back for his side once again.

Phenomenal. Torreira has been sensational since joining from Sampdoria in a £26.4m move this summer.

His combative nature and energy midfield is something Arsenal have missed for years and years.

Emery obviously identified this need in the summer and decided to plug that gap by signing the 22-year-old.

That decision proved to be a masterstroke by the Spanish manager.
