It's hard to explain but good to learn from because the players need to react differently "We opened the door in those five minutes".

"We showed we could turn it around but then we made a mistake at a corner and paid for it". Having come on as a substitute for injured captain Jordan Henderson, the experienced midfielder has called for Liverpool to be "boring" at times.

Mignolet has faced 52 shots on target over the course of the season (only Thibaut Courtois and Ederson have had less shots on targets against them in terms of goalkeepers that have played 15 games or more this season). "We need to be angry". "Nothing serious happened", he said.

Arsene Wenger's side netted three goals in just four minutes 45 seconds to stage a spirited comeback in a 3-3 draw.

They remain a point behind fourth placed Liverpool but Wenger admitted it was a privilege to be part of the part of the Premier League's game of the season.

He said: "We felt we didn't do ourselves justice in the first half".

"To be completely honest it could have been game over at half-time". We played too deep.

"We're ready to be in training and prepare for Liverpool until I'm told anything different".

"When you watch him, and I think I've heard it being said, at times when he's bobbing and weaving and chopping it back onto his left foot, is there a wee bit of Messi, the body movement", McAllister said on LFC TV.

The Reds are already out of the title race but if they are to progress in the Champions League then they must sign a top defender.

While the first half of the game against Arsenal on Friday was an entertaining and exhilarating run of football, topped by a headed goal, of all things, from Philippe Coutinho, the second half was not one of the history books. "We've got the hard bit - going out and being good enough to pull teams apart".
