The match finished 0-0 at the Emirates, with the Merseyside club hitting both the post and the crossbar. The Gunners did take control of the game in the second half, but on the whole the Reds were the better team throughout the encounter.
“You heard Petr Cech getting a round of applause for the saves he made,” said Rodgers, “Overall we kept a good clean sheet but disappointed we didn’t win. It is about keeping really well organised.
“Both goalkeepers made good saves. A really good clean sheet against a top team.”
However, the stalemate has continued the Anfield outfit’s unbeaten start to the season, with victories over Stoke City and Bournemouth coming before this match. New signings Roberto Firmino, Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, Christian Benteke, Joe Gomez, and others have also integrated well in to the first team, meaning that performances may improve further as the campaign continues.
So far this has been a major improvement on last season, when Liverpool disappointed for large periods and eventually finished sixth in the Premier League. If the team slip up and this happens again, it could mean the end of Rodgers at the club.
