​Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he was 'very disappointed' by his side's inability to see out a win in the closing stages at Anfield, as Liverpool claimed a late 3-3 draw, but told ​BBC Sport it was hard for him to criticise the efforts of his players.


Roberto Firmino put Liverpool ahead, and although Ramsey replied quickly, the Brazilian scored again with a wonder strike. Giroud levelled it up before the break, before putting Wenger's men ahead shortly after it. Allen stole a point for Liverpool, leaving Arsenal feeling hard done by.


"I'm very disappointed but, overall, I cannot fault the effort and commitment of the team." Wenger said.


"We had a difficult start. At 3-2, we should have made it 4-2 and didn't make the right decision in final third."


Wenger was keen to praise the performance of their opposition Liverpool, and feels the Gunners didn't react well to their bright opening, and although they take regrets from the game, the French boss feels there are plenty of positives to reflect on too.

"Liverpool fought until the last second. I felt we had an apprehensive start. We had some bad memories from a few years ago and you could still see that in some players. We went 1-0 down and then we started to play. We come out of the game with a lot of positive but still some regrets."


Leicester's win at Spurs means Arsenal couldn't stretch a lead at the top of the table, and they next face one of their 'bogey' teams in Stoke City at the Brittania this weekend.
