Arsenal and Liverpool both felt they deserved more from their 1-1 draw at the Emirates.

While Jurgen Klopp was left to bemoan his side's missed chances, Unai Emery's side are now 14 games unbeaten and enjoyed the lion's share of possession, which is not an easy feat against the Reds.

"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," Emery said.

"For the supporters, it is a great match and a good spectacle but I am only 50% 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."

It took just over an hour for James Milner to break the deadlock, Bernd Leno having pushed the ball directly into the 32-year-old's path.

The Gunners stuck at it and refused to lie down as Liverpool went for the kill - and with 82 minutes on the clock, they finally got their reward.

Alexandre Lacazette made the run, took a touch past Alisson and while still on the turn, topped it off with an exquisite finish.

Lacazette's iconic celebration 

It's clear the Frenchman delights in playing at the Emirates. In fact, he's scored 17 of his 23 goals for the club at home, running straight over to the fans as the ball rustled the back of the net.

However, many were left confused by his celebration, which looked like he was stirring a pot.

Fortunately, Arsenal fans on Twitter have got to the bottom of it. They claim he's copying NBA guard James Harden, who does it when he scores a big shot for Housten Rockets.

According to Bleacher Report, Harden himself got the idea from Houston hip-hop artist Chedda Da Connect and the video for his song 'Flicka Da Wrist'.

Lacazette's celebrations are fast becoming iconic as he continues to bang in the goals.

"The first big game we lost but we knew if we work like we did for 12 games we can have points," he said afterwards.

“We felt we had the quality to play the top of the league tonight.

“The first half was hard, but in the second half we were better and more physical."
