Liverpool's own refusal to take a backward step helped the occasion, making this one of the finest Premier League matches this season, but Arsenal's fans reserved most of their appreciation for their own team.
"I'm happy with our performance and I think today the balance in the 90 minutes is more balanced positively with the control against them, but it's very hard to not let them have chances also".
"It's very important when you play against City, Chelsea and Liverpool and if you win it's better".
'We created the biggest chances in the game and had empty goals and didn't use it, ' he said.
"In 90 minutes there are a lot of moments to control the match".
Liverpool have now played four of the other five "big six" clubs, and have drawn three of them with their only victory coming at Wembley against Spurs. Maybe today we were more near with our performance.
If they don't lose by more than three goals next week, I'll be shocked.
Leno had good and bad moments in this game, but the German looks an upgrade on the aging and error-prone Petr Cech. The two teams produced 16 first-half shots between them in an end-to-end opening 45 minutes.
The left-back also rued how the Reds conceded "a poor goal from our point of view", explaining how previously "this season we've been really good at holding on to leads".
"It was a good game but defensively we did come under a bit of pressure, especially in the last 10 minutes when they equalised, but we managed to stay strong".
Klopp acknowledged the courage in Emery's style when he said: "Arsenal did this before this year when they pretty much brought on all of their strikers".
Yes, there was a wobble after James Milner put Liverpool ahead but there was no sign of the capitulation we may have witnessed in the past.
Emery's decision to take off top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Iwobi had raised eyebrows, but this wasn't the first time his mid-game change has made an impact. "I was actually waiting for [Robin] van Persie and [Dennis] Bergkamp", Klopp joked at a post-match news conference, referring to the two Gunners greats.
The former centre-back claimed Salah does not look the same player from last season, where he scored 44 goals in his first campaign at Anfield. The Spaniard won the Europa League three times in succession with Sevilla, including one against Klopp's Liverpool in 2016, and is a formidable tactical mind. It's not nice, but of course a point at Arsenal will always be an absolutely good result.
