Full time and the match ends without a goal!

Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool

The first Premier League draw between these two clubs since 1999.

24 Aug 22:50

Cross comes in, Gabriel heads over...

Final act of the day!

24 Aug 22:50

Mignolet saves!

Oxlade-Chamberlain's fierce shot is saved!


24 Aug 22:49


He butchers a great chance for Liverpool there!

He could've passed to Benteke or Can or shot - he did nothing...

24 Aug 22:48
92' Horrible ball from Oxlade-Chamberlain - great defensive work for Liverpool though...
24 Aug 22:46

Only added time now...

Four minutes of stoppage time to play!

24 Aug 22:46

Ramsey goes on a weaving run!

Arsenal can't find the shot!

All hands on deck defence-wise for Liverpool!

24 Aug 22:43

87' Moreno on for Coutinho...

Rodgers shutting up shop here!

24 Aug 22:42
Mignolet has been booked for time wasting... he was warned earlier!
24 Aug 22:42

Cazorla with a rather embarrassing "shot"...

Miles wide. Miles high.

24 Aug 22:41
85' It's all Arsenal now...
24 Aug 22:41

83' UNREAL! Skrtel so close to an own goal! 

Oxlade-Chamberlain's cross was on it's way to finding Walcott but Skrtel intervened!

24 Aug 22:39

83' Ramsey almost catches Mignolet out!

So close to a goal! Horrible deflection almost caught Mignolet out!

24 Aug 22:38

81' Cech denies Coutinho!

Well hit and well punched away!

Coutinho also a danger but Cech up to the challenge!

24 Aug 22:36
Just over 10 minutes to play - Goals anyone?!
24 Aug 22:34

Brilliantly whipped in and Chambers heads out for another corner...

Arsenal defend it and Sanchez breaks!

24 Aug 22:34

77' Coquelin gives away a corner...

Coutinho won it... who else!?

24 Aug 22:32

74' Lucas swapped for...

A young Liverpool lad by the name of Jordan Rossiter...

Who?! The chap looks 12-years-old!

He's 18 though...

24 Aug 22:30

73' Brilliant Bellerin.

Great defending as Coutinho is dispossessed inside the Arsenal box!

24 Aug 22:29
72' Giroud subbed...Walcott on!
24 Aug 22:28

71' Nice save Mignolet!

Ramsey tries a curling strike from the edge of the area but again the Liverpool keeper is up to the challenge!

Benteke shoots over at the other end...

24 Aug 22:27

69' Gomez bursts and Milner shoots!

Straight at Cech!

Great 60-70 yard run by Gomez and a powerful shot by Milner!

24 Aug 22:26

Skrtel lucky not to have given away a penalty in the build up to that Arsenal effort...

If Giroud doesn't shoot, Arsenal have a spot kick!

24 Aug 22:26


What a save!

Liverpool's keeper makes a wonderful one-handed save to deny Giroud!

24 Aug 22:24

67' Giroud can't get a good strike on a Monreal cross...

Oh so close to the opening goal!

24 Aug 22:23

66' Few yellow cards been dished out now!

Arsenal dominating now but still no goals...

24 Aug 22:19

63' Firmino off! Ibe on!

24 Aug 22:18

Cazorla's free kick is poor. Cleared by the wall...

24 Aug 22:18

61' Skrtel the first player booked!

For a push on Sanchez!

24 Aug 22:17
Liverpool break forward and Coutinho drives a shot on target but it's easy for Cech to collect...
24 Aug 22:17


How did he miss that?

Sanchez hits the bar from close range!

Great passing interplay from the Gunners upfront but the opening, a rare one, has been wasted!

24 Aug 22:15


Arsenal: 6

Liverpool: 11

24 Aug 22:14

56' Mignolet warned for time wasting!

Not sure why he would with his side dominating proceedings!

24 Aug 22:13

55' Giroud loses the ball on the edge of the area...

Liverpool well organised at the back!

24 Aug 22:12

54' Arsenal with all the possession but they can't find any space to get a shot away...

Eventually Liverpool clear and race upfield!

Benteke loses the ball inside the Gunners box with the home side again stretched on defence!

24 Aug 22:10
53' Cazorla's effort is poor and is easily cleared!
24 Aug 22:09
Monreal wins another corner...
24 Aug 22:09

52' Arsenal win the corner after Skrtel blocked Giroud's strike inside the six yard box!

Great defending...

24 Aug 22:06

49' Scrappy all round play now...

Cazorla shoots from miles away, his shot is blocked and Liverpool break.

Firmino is well tracked by Ramsey and the hosts clear the ball upfield.

24 Aug 22:05

48' Joe Gomez looking settled despite his young years!

Whips in a cross but Chambers heads clear

24 Aug 22:03

46' Liverpool on the attack early and again Chambers looks dodgey at the back...

He hacks clear and Liverpool stay on the attack

24 Aug 22:01
45' Here we go for the second half
24 Aug 22:01


Arsenal 0 - 0 Liverpool

Shots 3 - 11

Passing accuracy: 85% - 74%

Crosses: 10-0

24 Aug 21:59


Arsenal have given the ball away 17 times in their half today!

That's right SEVENTEEN!

24 Aug 21:59


It's 0-0 at the break!

Apologies for the late of activity - my computer decided to shut down out of the blue!

I've given it the hairdryer treatment much like Arsene Wenger will be doing right now!

Benteke missed a simple tap in (saved fantastically by Cech on the line) and Coutinho was denied a brilliant goal with Cech diving full stretch to his right and managed to get his finger tips on the ball!

24 Aug 21:35


There hasn’t been a goalless draw in the last 32 PL games between Arsenal & Liverpool, dating back to 98-99, when both games were 0-0!

  • 90'

    FULL TIME ARSENAL 0-0 LIVERPOOL: Neither side can find a winning goal at the Emirates in an entertaining goalless clash. Both goalkeepers performed well and produced some key saves.

  • 76'

    Young Liverpool starlet Jordan Rossiter is given a chance in place of Lucas Leiva in another switch by Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

  • 73'

    Olivier Giroud makes way for Theo Walcott as he pays the price for those missed opportunities.

  • 68'

    Nacho Monreal gets into the left of the area and tees up Olivier Giroud but again he can't get the vital touch.

  • 66'

    Emre Can picks up a yellow card for a cynical foul on Aaron Ramsey and will hope history does not result itself as he was sent off here last season.

  • 65'

    Olivier Giroud just can't connect with a low Aaron Ramsey cross before Gabriel fouls Christian Benteke and is booked.

  • 63'

    Roberto Firmino is replaced by Jordon Ibe for Liverpool.

  • 61'

    Philippe Coutinho hits a low strike which Peter Cech gets down to save. Martin Skrtel is the first player in the book for a foul on Alexis Sanchez.

  • 60'

    Alexis Sanchez is played in down the left but his angled effort hits off the post as Arsenal continue to press.

    A promising start by Arsenal as they have taken the game to Liverpool without really finding a way through the visitors' backline.

  • 48'

    Arsenal make a quick first attack but the left-wing cross is punched clear by Simon Mignolet and Arsenal then thwart a Liverpool attack down the left.

  • 46'

    The second half is up and running with Liverpool aiming to start where they finished the first half. Arsenal somehow need to get their house in order at the back and hope their forwards can nick a goal.

  • 45'

    HALF TIME ARSENAL 0-0 LIVERPOOL: Petr Cech has saved Arsenal in the first half with two brilliant saves to ensure Liverpool have not taken a deserved lead as the Merseysiders have been on top.

  • 31'

    Calum Chambers looks a worried man here as Christian Benteke seems to have the beating of him as he has made a couple of surging runs deep into the Arsenal half.

  • 29'

    Liverpool are pushing Arsenal back into their own half in a good spell of play.

  • 27'

    Liverpool's second corner in a matter of a minutes again comes to nothing as Peter Cech gathers this one.

    Francis Coquelin again produces another great tackle to deny Christian Benteke a run through at goal and referee Michael Oliver rightly ignores the penalty shouts.

  • 2'

    Liverpool have started well here as Emre Can runs down the left channel and plays in Christian Benteke who swings a boot at the ball but fails to get a good connection and fires wide.

  • 1'

    The Premier League action is under way at the Emirates as we see another expected title challengers go head-to-head. We usually get goals in this fixture so hopefully that trend continues tonight.

  • 0'

    Arsenal have only lost once of their last 15 home games against Liverpool so will be looking to put on a show for their fans at the Emirates after the opening day debacle against West Ham. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has also failed to win in all four Premier League away matches as a manager against Arsenal. The omens favour the Gunners tonight.

  • 0'

    Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Gomez, Milner, Can, Lucas, Firmino, Coutinho, Benteke.

    Injured midfield duo Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana miss out, along with the benched Jordan Ibe, to be replaced by playmaker Roberto Firmino, for his first start, Emre Can and Lucas Leiva as Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers makes three changes to the XI which defeated Premier League new boys Bournemouth 1-0 at Anfield last Monday night.
