But Arteta admits it Liverpool They remain major-bearers in England and explain what distinguishes them.
“We are on a different journey for them,” said the Arsenal coach. “They have been together for five years.
“They weren’t able to do what they did tonight two or three years ago, that’s for sure.
They did a lot of good work. They have a lot of faith in the way they play, they have got great recruiting and have improved the players they have.

Arteta was left to regret a chance in the second half when Alison Baker was deprived of Lacazette when he managed to win.
He said, “It’s clearly a really difficult place to come.” “They are a really good team. We stayed in the match almost the whole match.
“Having the lead I think we should have dealt with it a little bit better, we came in very early. We competed throughout the match and we knew we were going to have tough moments at Anfield but with the belief that we could get something out of the game.
“When we had the clear chances to make it 2-2, we didn’t score. If you want something from here, you have to take advantage of these opportunities.”
