“Wasted opportunity, but a decent point” – Liverpool fans react to 1-1 draw at Arsenal

Liverpool dropped two points on the road in a frantic 1-1 draw with Arsenal, and supporters had mixed views on the result and individual performances.

Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool

Premier League, Emirates
November 3, 2018

Goals: Lacazette 82’; Milner 61’

It was a frustrating evening for Liverpool in north London as a high-tempo 90 minutes ensured the game hung in the balance for the entirety, before the spoils were shared.

The Reds hit the lead through James Milner in the second half, only for Alexandre Lacazette to capitalise on a momentary defensive lapse late on to leave Liverpool ruing a number of missed opportunities.

It inevitably meant Jurgen Klopp’s men dropped two points on the road, but after 11 games the Reds remain unbeaten atop of the Premier League table—with Man City yet to play.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Fabinho came under fire after struggling to make a positive impact, which saw the skipper’s absence duly noted…

“Thought Fabinho was our worst player today. He seemed to find the pace of the game difficult to keep up with, putting more pressure on our mids and defence.”

RedSeven on the forums.


Van Dijk led the pack, but concern continues to surround the form of Alexander-Arnold…

“Arnold was awful today cost us nearly every time down the left… And if he didn’t stop and waving his arms in the air he could have stopped their goal.”

Tim Walling on Facebook.


Fans were disappointed to concede late on, but perspective on the bigger picture was maintained…

“A fair result tbh I’m actually happy with point it’s good point if u wanna win the league u have to pick up ugly point or points at tough places like this I’m glad we didn’t lose we didn’t play well tbh but I’m happy with a point.”

Chris Welch on Facebook.

“Still unbeaten, the point of not losing to other top teams isn’t just to get a point, but to not give them +3 in the table. Beat Spurs away from home, Didn’t lose to City (the best team in the league) and didn’t lose to Arsenal or Chelsea away from home. Not complaining.”
