Match stats
BBC

34% is the lowest possession stat is the lowest Liverpool have recorded in the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers.

That is far from their worst result though.

More from Arsene Wenger on BBC Sport : "We scored a regular goal that was disallowed, I don't believe I can do something about it. At the end of the day the referee cancelled out a regular goal. Like it or don't like it, it is a fact.

"We had chances bit we couldn't finish them off. When you play at home and don't win, people always find problems.

"It is not the result or the complete performance but we came back in the second half.

"If you are not first, you play catch up, there are 19 times who play catch up."

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on Sky Sports: "Liverpool had some chances in the first half and nothing in the second. We had chances in both halves and were unlucky because we scored a regular goal that was ruled out and that was very difficult to understand.

"We were insecure at the back because we had a new defence but second half we were more stable.

"We played quite well in the first half, we had chances, enough chances to win the game. Liverpool cannot complain with the decision, not on Monday, not today.

"You have to give credit to Liverpool, they worked very hard defensively. We want to score goals, we had a lot of possession but if you cannot finish and a team plays deep, we struggled to score. This is the second time at home and we are not used to that.

"We know we can score goals but we need to play what we do better in the final third."

More from Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers on BBC Sport:  "I thought we were very good. First half Petr Cech was the man of the match. 

"Second half we were always a threat going forward. The players worked ever so hard."

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers on Sky Sports: ""I thought we were outstanding, we showed everything. You heard Petr Cech getting a round of appluase for the saves he made.

"Overall we kept a good clean sheet but disappointed we didn't win. It is about keeping really well organised.

"Both goalkeepers made good saves. A really good clean sheet against a top team.

"We saw how our team is growing. Nothing to add on any transfers."

Manager reaction

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers has just appeared in front of the cameras and, as you might expect, he is accentuating the positives.

A "real focus", "strong", an "attacking threat". 

He is asked if Mario Balotelli has finalised a loan back to AC Milan. He keeps a poker face as he stonewalls the question, but he looks like a man relieved that he won't have to answer questions about the man much longer.

Arsenal keeper Petr Cech speaking to Sky Sports: "When you start with your first game at a new club and everything goes wrong you have to go back to work and bounce back.

"This was one of those game where I was in the right place at the right time. It is hard to believe after all the chances in the game that it finished 0-0. 

"With Christian Benteke's effort, Gabriel tried to intercept the ball and I have to wait and get there fast after the shot. 

"The positive thing out of this game is the number of chances we created in the second half. We made plenty of errors in the first half."

If you told Arsenal fans at the start of the season that they would be above Chelsea after three games, they would have taken it.

They might not be so sure now...

Liverpool's tough set of fixtures early on in the season could have piled immediate pressure on Brendan Rodgers after a drab 2014-15 season.

So far he is swimming, not sinking.

If Arsenal are expecting to take top four, then why shouldn't Liverpool? They were equally as good as each other.

Petr Cech and Simon Mignolet swaps shirts and a smile. The two goalkeepers had excellent games.

That is a third successive clean sheet for the Liverpool goalkeeper.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain wallops in a shot. Mignolet pushes behind.

From the resulting corner, Gabriel heads over as the goalkeeper comes and misses with a punch.

That might be that...

CLOSE!

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

Javier Moreno, fresh off the bench, storms forwards. It's three on two. Give it!

Greedy. The Spaniard goes it alone and is robbed by an under-staffed Arsenal defence.

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

The Liverpool fans start a chorus of You'll Never Walk Alone.

They believe that their team might have done enough for a point. They might be right. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain's pass to Nacho Monreal is hopelessly over-hit.

Coutinho has been absolutely wonderful, what a player. He would get you off your seat.

CLOSE!

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

Martin Skrtel stretches just far enough to nudges the ball away from Aaron Ramsey as the Welshman prepares to pull the trigger.

Simon Mignolet punches a cross clear.

Arsenal still hammering forward.

Simon Mignolet is booked for time-wasting. Guilty as charged.

Arsenal have Liverpool on the rack here. Emirates is sensing a late winner.

Santi Cazorla is not going to supply it like that. He crashes clean over the top from 25 yards.

Five to go.

SUBSTITUTION

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces Francis Coquelin and has an immediate impact for Arsenal. He hares down the left and sends in a skimming cross that Martin Skrtel stabs just wide of his own post.

GREAT SAVE!

Simon Mignolet is almost wrong-footed as a shot from distance deflects off Dejan Lovren, but the Belgian shifts his weight just in time to get down and save.

How good is Coutinho? Unbelievable ability. You always have a chance with a player like that.

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

Philippe Coutinho's twinkle toes take him jinking into the penalty area, before he puts a size nine through the back of the ball. It is straight at Petr Cech, but that was a warning to Arsenal that Liverpool still have the talent to snatch something out of nothing.

YELLOW CARD

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

 Joe Gomez has his name taken after tugging Aaron Ramsey's shirt. He had been done up like a kipper by the Welshman's backheel and was caught the wrong side.

A good tactical yellow to take from Liverpool's point of view.

Liverpool earn a corner as Francis Coquelin turns a Philippe Coutinho cross behind.

Plenty of height with the likes of Benteke, Can and Skrtel up to compete for it, but Arsenal clear.

Another minute chewed up and spat out by the visitors though.

Agreed, well played ref.

Arsenal bring on the pace of Theo Walcott, but sacrifice the muscular focal point to their attack in Olivier Giroud.

Right move Arsenal fans?

It feels that the Gunners have the upper hand.

Aaron Ramsey goes for placement, attempting to curl one into the postage stamp from outside the box.

Simon Mignolet is across well to pluck it out of the air.

A rare bit of respite for Liverpool as Joe Gomez storms forward. The counter attack comes to an end as James Milner fires a meaty 20-yarder straight down Petr Cech's gullet.

Liverpool will take a point won't they? Maybe not after that first half performance but they will be happy enough.
