Arsenal lost 5-1 at Anfield but coach Unai Emery has managed to salvage two positives from the defeat.

The Gunners allowed a 1-0 lead to turn into a mauling; you can read 16 pretty damning conclusions here.

“We only can think now of the match on Tuesday and know the difference between Liverpool and us was not like today’s result,” insisted Emery.

“Maybe we can do one balance, one mix between our draw and this result today. We have a lot of work to do, defensively also, we know we need to get better.

“There were some positives on the pitch – for example Ainsley played as right winger and scored, working well.

“Also Iwobi, after some matches not playing very well, today he played 90 minutes with a good performance.

“But defensively we need to be stronger, to work.”
