Alexandre Lacazette's late goal earned Unai Emery's men a share of the spoils with Liverpool as they drew 1-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday night.

It had looked as if would be Liverpool's night when James Milner opened the scoring in the 61st minute with a close range shot.

But Lacazette netted from a narrow angle, after running on to a pass from Alex Iwobi, with nine minutes to go to stretch the London club's unbeaten run, that stretches back to August 18, to 14 games.

Liverpool are still unbeaten in the Premier League this season, and they go top of the Premier League, at least for 24 hours, with the point earned.

But if champions Manchester City avoid defeat against Southampton on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium then they will retake top spot.
