Thanks for joining our coverage today. Until next time, goodbye.
Arsenal host Sporting CP in midweek in the Europa League before looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League next weekend against Wolves. Liverpool travel to Belgrade to face Red Star on Tuesday, before hosting Fulham at Anfield.
90'+4 A late change for Liverpool as Matip replaces Salah, with Klopp looking to close out the game.
90'+2 Arsenal fans are calling for a second yellow for Fabinho after he trips Ozil from behind on the halfway line but the referee only awards a free-kick.
90'+1 The fourth official has signalled five additional minutes at the end of the second half.
90' Both sides continue to look dangerous when they push into the opposing half and it would take a brave man to bet against a late winner for somebody.
88' Emery is full of energy on the sideline as he urges his side to push forward, barking instructions as he aims for his side to snatch a late winner. Bellerin has a decent chance but, with his weaker foot, cannot hit the target.
86' Iwobi continues to be a thorn in the side of the Liverpool defence as he lofts a fine cross into the area for Welbeck, who is penalised for handball after his initial touch bounces onto his arm.
84' Liverpool look to respond immediately as Mane sees his shot deflected over the bar, with the resulting corner presenting Salah with an oppotunity to shoot from outside the box but his dipping attempt is wide of the mark.
83' Lacazette is booked for his celebration after running to the supporters.
82' Iwobi has looked extremely lively since his introduction and his ball through to Lacazette there was sublime.
GOOOOAL! 1-1! Arsenal equalise! Iwobi feeds a fine pass through from Lacazette, who touches it past Alisson, who charges off his line, but looks to have been forced too wide. However, he shifts into a shooting position and curls fantastically into the far corner.
81' Arsenal's final change shows their statement of intent as Welbeck is introduced for Kolasinac.
80' Liverpool make their first change of the game by replacing Firmino, who has had a quiet game, with Shaqiri.
78' Liverpool are very strong defensively as they seek to quell any late pressure that Arsenal present. Although the Gunners are finding pockets of space in wide areas, they are unable to create chances in threatening positions.
76' Fine work from Iwobi as he skips past Alexander-Arnld and company before driving a cross into the middle of the box but there is no Arsenal man there able to take advantage.
75' Liverpool maintain the pressure through a flurry of corners and, although they come to nothing, Arsenal cannot quite clear their lines.
73' Second change for Arsenal as Aubameyang, unable to continue his scoring run, is replaced by Ramsey.
72' Arsenal looking for a response as the game enters the latter stages but they need to up the tempo, after losing their footing in the last few minutes.
70' Firmino heads wide of the goal following a corner that comes after a sustained period of attacking play from Liverpool. who look confident after taking the lead.
69' Salah beats the offside trap and feeds a low cross into the middle where Mane is inches away from latching onto.
68' Arsenal shuffle the deck by introducing Iwobi for Mkhitaryan, a straight swap on the flanks that provides fresh legs in attack.
64' Torreira pushes forward into a pocket of space and his shot from distance is pushed over the bar by Alisson, with the resulting corner coming to nothing.
63' A real kick in the teeth for Arsenal, who have been strong defensively but are now made to pay for a mistake. That is what the bigger sides in the Premier League will do though and it's now a real test of their character.
61' GOOOOAL! 1-0 Liverpool! A poor error from Leno as he pushes a cross away to the edge of the area where Milner has room, driving a fierce shot through a crowded box and into the net.
60' An hour gone in North London and there is still plenty to play for. Both sides see their direct rivals play tomorrow and know that a draw would open the door for others to take advantage.
58' Klopp's side cannot find any space to work with in the final third and Arsenal continue to grow in the game.
56' The Reds stand firm to get the ball away after an Arsenal corner, where Bellerin is crowded out on the edge of the box and is unable to get a shot away.
54' Liverpool have found themselves under consistent pressure at the start of the second period but Van Dijk is shining at the back.
52' Fabinho catches Torreira with a flailing arm and earns the game's first yellow card.
51' Superb defending from Van Dijk blocks off Mkhitaryan after he burst forward down the right, preventing the Arsenal man from cutting a pass across to Aubameyang.
48' The Gunners have started on the front foot at the start of the second period and have won a number of free-kicks but nothing has come from them.
46' Arsenal get the second half underway at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners know they have been stronger in the second period of matches this season and will be happy with how things have gone so far, although they need to remain on their toes. Liverpool have had the better chances and Salah looks to have the better of Kolasinac, which could be an area they look to exploit after the break.
An exciting first period at the Emirates Stadium where both sides have had chances and see goals disallowed for offside. Arsenal will be the happier of the two teams at the break, although they have lived life on the edge at times. Liverpool have also looked shaky at the back, which Klopp will be sure to focus on in his teamtalk.
44' Liverpool up the tempo in the latter stages of the first half but Arsenal's defence continues to stand firm, quelling the danger.
42' Emery will certainly be the happier of the two bosses at the break and he will be aware that Arsenal have been a lot stronger in the second halves of games this season, which is something for Klopp and Liverpool to be wary of.
39' Klopp is furious as Liverpool sloppily give the ball away in their defensive half but Aubameyang's header floats over the bar. Prior to that, Lacazette drilled a low effort wide of the post from an acute angle.
37' The end-to-end action is showing no signs of stopping after what has been a very competitive first half. Both teams have had decent opportunities to open the scoring but the scoreline is probably a fair reflection on the game so far.
33' A decent period in the game for Arsenal, which has lead to an increase of noise inside the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to finish the first period on the front foot.
31' Aubameyang, who has scored five in his last three, is starting to appear in different positions in the final third but he is unable to threaten Alisson as a poor shot is deflected behind for a corner which comes to nothing.
29' The Gunners are moving the ball around in midfield as they ease the pressure after finding themselves under the hammer in the past few minutes but they are unable to find space within the Liverpool defence to exploit.
27' Liverpool look to be establishing a grip on the game but Arsenal still look dangerous when they push forward, though they lack the final ball at the moment.
25' Arsenal have had a few shaky moments in the past five minutes and Liverpool look to be growing in confidence, with Salah continously getting the better of Kolasinac in their individual battle.
22' Excellent tackle from Xhaka to bring an end to Salah's bursting run down the right, putting the ball behind for a corner. However, Milner's floated delivery is easily dealt with.
20' Decent chances for both teams early on in what seems to be quite an open game, particularly in the wide positions.
15' Arsenal use a move from the training ground to good effect from the resulting corner but Xhaka does not connect with his shot properly and it is an easy save for Alisson.
12' Arsenal have not been at their best in the first halves of their matches this season, which is a concern, and signs are just starting to suggest that Liverpool are starting to push onto the front foot.
10' Both sides are playing with a very strong attacking press on the opposing defenders and it has already led to a number of shaky moments.
6' Good defending from Holding as he heads the ball behind for a corner, preventing Firmino from flicking an effort at goal, and the resulting set-piece is dealt with comfortably by Arsenal.
3' Arsenal retaining possession well in the opening minutes as they knock the ball around midfield before Ozil feeds an inviting pass through to Aubameyang, who is flagged offside.
1' Liverpool get the game underway at the Emirates Stadium.
The two sides are heading onto the field for what looks set to be a crucial clash for both sides. Liverpool can go top of the table, at least temporarily, with a point while Arsenal can pull just one point behind the Reds with a win.
