Xhaka confident Arsenal will finish in top four

Lukaku hasn’t scored in nine matches

It was a ballsy switch from Emery but in keeping with his approach.

Emery is a coach of real pedigree with concrete belief in his methods.

And although Emery has been pleased by what he has seen from Xhaka recently, he still admits that the midfielder has plenty of room for improvement. Liverpool's back line was breached again in short order, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's shot deflected wide by Joe Gomez's desperate sliding tackle. He was bold and was rewarded.

Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea have emerged as dark horses to be crowned champions for the second time in three years. I was actually waiting for Van Persie and Bergkamp!

Well, Arsenal did just that on Saturday evening in the form of Liverpool - and they passed the test.

Lucas Torreira - 8 -Was the metronome of Arsenal's midfield, helping to control the game while also chipping in defensively. James Milner scored the opener but Alexandre Lacazette brought the hosts level in the final moments to split the points, as the Reds remained undefeated in the league.

Arsenal meanwhile, were just four points behind the leaders.

Andy Robertson - 6 - The slightly less busy of Liverpool's full-backs, Robertson had a good game without really contributing much in attack or defence as most of the play went down the other wing.

Liverpool can play better than they did at the Emirates but they still looked comfortable at the back and didn't look like losing.

It was also further evidence that this Arsenal side, while retaining the flowing game that was their trademark, also has stomach for the fight.

Holding believes that Arsenal are fighting with those teams above them and told his club's official site: "It's a competitive league". The Swiss global was at the heart of most of Arsenal's play and used his left-back experience to help out defensively too.

Arsenal benefited from a lucky escape in the first half of their Premier League clash against Liverpool as the officials wrongly ruled out Sadio Mane's early goal.

Last season, under Arsene Wenger, the atmosphere at the Emirates became hostile as supporters demanded change following another failed Premier League title challenge.

Emery's energy transmits itself to Arsenal's players and supporters. While his 14 goal tally wasn't bad, it wasn't good either, and for most fans the defining image of the forward was him walking around looking forlorn, his hands on his head, rueing yet another missed chance.
