Alexandre Lacazette’s late strike earned Arsenal a 1-1 draw against unbeaten Premier League leaders Liverpool at Emirates Stadium.

In the first half of a high-quality contest, Henrikh Mkhitaryan headed just wide for Arsenal while Virgil van Dijk twice went close to scoring for the visitors.

James Milner then put Liverpool ahead on 61 minutes, drilling in his 50th Premier League goal after Sadio Mane’s cross was palmed away by Bernd Leno.
