After a dominant period by Arsenal in the opening 15 minutes, Liverpool have finally entered the encounter and have started to dominate proceedings. The Reds should be ahead with Lazar Markovic missing a glorious opportunity.
After fining himself clear on goal, he took the decision to square the ball to Raheem Sterling but overhit the pass and squandered a sensational chance following a significant period of being under the cosh.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool would go on to rue that chance but Brendan Rodgers will certainly be encouraged by how his side have responded in this game.
Costing a massive £20m from Benfica over the summer, Markovic certainly didn’t show the collection or composure of a player able to command that kind of money.
