Liverpool’s perfect record ended with Arsenal stalemate

Neither side were able to make a breakthrough at The Emirates

By Tom Hayward

Liverpool’s 100 per cent start to the season ended with a hard-fought goalless draw against top-four rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

Arsenal were indebted to goalkeeper Petr Cech – at fault for West Ham United’s goals in a 2-0 opening-weekend defeat – in the first half after he produced a string of stunning saves to keep an impressive Liverpool at bay.

Arsenal improved and enjoyed the better of proceedings in the second half but were unable to breech a stingy Liverpool defence which has yet to concede in three matches this season.

Liverpool sit third with seven points – two behind early pace-setters Manchester City – while Arsenal, touted as serious title contenders before the season, have had an indifferent start and sit ninth with four points.
