Liverpool frustrated by Newcastle

Liverpool started off well against Newcastle and went ahead through Phillipe Coutinho's curling strike that gave goalkeeper Rob Elliot no chance at all.

Opta noted how the Brazilian's long-range shooting is unrivalled in the Premier League:

However, the hosts were quick to respond, with Joselu exploiting plenty of space in the Liverpool backline and racing through on goal.

While Joel Matip did well to get back and make a recovery tackle, the ball took a touch off the striker and beat goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool pressed for a winner but struggled to break down a disciplined and determined home side who fought hard for their point.

Goal's Melissa Reddy noted how Liverpool have struggled for form since the last international break:

Jurgen Klopp's side may therefore welcome the break from Premier League football, particularly with their next fixture being a visit from rivals Manchester United.

         

Arsenal continue winning ways

Arsenal's good run of form continued with a victory against Brighton, with the Gunners picking up a fourth consecutive Premier League clean sheet.

Nacho Monreal opened the scoring for the hosts, firing home from inside the penalty area after Brighton had failed to clear a free kick.

It was a fine finish from the full-back, and his performance drew praise from Goal's Chris Wheatley:

Arsenal added a second after the break from a flowing passing move that culminated in Alex Iwobi smashing past goalkeeper Mat Ryan, following a clever backheel from Alexis Sanchez.

Opta highlighted just how crucial the Chilean is to Arsenal:

The victory means Arsenal remain unbeaten since the August defeats to Stoke City and Liverpool, and the club may be disappointed to see their fun of form halted by the international break.

The Gunners have won six of their last seven games, which leaves them six points off the top of the table after having already played both Chelsea and Liverpool away from home.
