Granit Xhaka’s transformation under Unai Emery is an Arsenal game changer

Granit Xhaka’s transformation under Unai Emery is an Arsenal game changer

James Milner - 7 - The busiest of Liverpool's midfield trio, Milner was his usual no-nonsense self, set on halting Arsenal while also pushing his own side forward. "The best way to do it is right from the first moment and then you can build on that, but we didn't do it right from the first moment".

The visitors appeared on course to inflict a first defeat on the Gunners since August when Milner scored the 50th Premier League goal of his career to open the scoring just after the hour-mark.

Not once has he lost.

Jamie Carragher says Liverpool fans should "relax" about their title hopes after falling two points behind Man City at the weekend.

Djokovic back on top after Nadal withdraws in Paris
Tournament organisers in Paris announced on Wednesday that Nadal had pulled out due to an abdominal strain. Novak Djokovic described his return to world No 1, after a two-year absence, as a "phenomenal achievement".

Milner unsurprisingly tops the pile for this particular statistic, which is unlikely to be challenged anytime soon.

Arsenal took on Liverpool last night in the Premier League.

They came into the match tied atop the Premier League with defending champs Manchester City on the strength of an identical 8W-0L-2T record.

The German champions are keen to sit down with Ramsey's representatives in January, when the player will be free to talk to foreign clubs regarding a potential move.

Lo Duca: My Card for The 2018 Breeders’ Cup
The $6 million Cup Classic is the marquee race that could help determine which thoroughbred ends up as Horse of the Year. The gates of Churchill Downs opened to the world Friday for the first of a two-day celebration of horse racing.

Leno, who has been rotated with Petr Cech in the early stages of the season, insists Emery's approach gives player's a boost.

"The result tomorrow is very important but first I want to show them, to show you and to show everybody our best mentality in the game", he told reporters on Friday. We were disappointed not to win because we had more clear chances than them. They have one from us [the 0-0 draw at Anfield], if they get 89 more I have no influence on that. We know about his leadership qualities but what I notice is how easy he makes the game look.

That's a shame. Second half we changed formation a bit and it helped us today. Asked in his post-match press conference whether he felt aggrieved at the goal being disallowed, he said: "I think it was a goal".

The Reds travelled to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday with a more athletic, solid and physical duo of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez at the back.
