The Gunners and the Reds put on yet another epic encounter as the two titans of the Premier League played out a draw at the Emirates.
That said, Arsene Wenger's side were on the ragged end more often than not and were subject to constructive criticism from pundits and viewers after the match.
Read three things we learned from the game as a result:
Signed from Southampton for £16 million last season, the England U21 player enjoyed a near flawless start to his Arsenal career which included composed performances against Manchester City the Community Shield and against Besiktas in the Champions League qualifiers.
Since then however, the former of the former Saints star has dipped and against Liverpool it reached new heights as the front three of Benteke, Coutinho and Firmino gave him the runaround. He also caused a lot of instability in the Gunners passing play as he needlessly conceded possession.
For ten straight years the Arsenal midfield has been harangued for being lightweight, yet the minute they find a real battler pundits have been quick to underplay his contributions.
Coquelin alone was tasked with protecting a decimated backline and did so to perfection with many well-timed last-ditch challenges. Granted Arsenal do need another defensive midfielder for depth purposes, it should not be at the expense of the Frenchman. How about dropping the £40 million Mesut Ozil who was yet again quiet in a big match?
In the build-up to the crunch tie Benzema put an end to rumours linking him with a move to North London with this picture on social media.
Unfortunately he was unable to respond accordingly as he wasted two glorious chances in the second-half, further opinions he is not good enough to lead the forward line.
