Arteta’s men are six points clear of Manchester City at the top of the league, but the reigning champions now control their own destiny.

City has a game in hand and will play Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium later this month.

Arsenal custodian Aaron Ramsdale saved a draw for his team after Jurgen Klopp’s players wasted a succession of opportunities to complete the comeback.

“We lacked the ruthlessness to win the game,” Arteta stated. “The key lesson is that we didn’t play as we did in the first half.”

“We didn’t keep playing. We threw every ball away, gave the best team in the world vast gaps and tremendous transition periods.”

The game will also be remembered for a stunning incident immediately after halftime when assistant referee Constantine Hatzidakis smashed an elbow into the face of Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson.
