Liverpool’s 11th Premier League fixture this season ended in a draw (1-1) against the London based club, Arsenal. The Reds got the lead through James Milner during the 61st minute of the game but a late solo goal from Alexandre Lacazette helped Unai Emery’s team to extend their unbeaten run to 14 matches. Here is how the Liverpool players are rated for the game.

The Liverpool keeper had a bad game and made a number of bad decisions during the game. Partly-culprit of Arsenal’s equalizer.
Trent Alexender Arnold- 5
Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is one of four Premier League players on the final 20-man shortlist for the 2018 European Golden Boy award.

The young English full-back had a difficult game and struggled all night against the Gunners’ attack.
Joe Gomez- 7

One of Liverpool’s best players this season, Joe Gomez enjoyed a fine game and saved the Reds numerous times with his important blocks and interceptions.
Virgil van Dijk- 8
Disappointed not to score and get the win in the end but we come away with a solid point away from home. Thanks to all of our travelling fans for the brilliant support as always. Time to focus again on the @ChampionsLeague now #weareliverpool 💪 pic.twitter.com/dKlrrQ1IJf
— Virgil van Dijk (@VirgilvDijk) November 3, 2018
Arguably the best center-back in the league, Virgil van Dijk enjoyed a terrific game and organized the Reds’ defence brilliantly throughout the game. He was also a threat to Arsenal’s defence during set-pieces.
Andrew Robertson- 6
— Andrew Robertson (@andrewrobertso5) November 3, 2018
The Scottish international never stops running and contributes heavily in both attack and defence.
Gini Wijnaldum- 5
The Dutch midfielder had a quiet game and was completely dominated by Arsenal’s midfield in the middle of the park.
James Milner- 7
— Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 3, 2018
The veteran midfielder was all over the pitch for Liverpool and scored the Reds only goal during the game. He maintained Liverpool’s record of not losing a Premier League game after getting on the scoresheet.
— Fabinho (@_fabinhotavares) November 3, 2018
Fabinho made some good tackles but was way too sloppy with his passing. He needs more time to adjust to the Premier League.
Mohamed Salah- 6

— Mohamed Salah (@MoSalah) November 2, 2018
The Egyptian virtuoso unsettled the Gunners’ defence during the opening minutes of the first half but faded as the game proceeds. He is yet to reach his heights of the last season.
Roberto Firmino- 6

Roberto Firmino failed to influence the Reds’ gameplay as much as he would have liked and played a quiet game against the London-based club. He was subbed with Xherdan Shaqiri in the second half.
Sadio Mane- 7
— Mirror Football (@MirrorFootball) November 3, 2018
Liverpool’s top scorer in the Premier League played a vital role in the link-up to Milner’s goal. He was unlucky as his goal was wrongly ruled out for offside.

The former Stoke City attacker was sent onto the field by Jurgen Klopp in the second half but he didn’t get enough opportunities to impact the game.
