Liverpool should have put more past Arsenal, says ´disappointed´ Milner

James Milner was left frustrated with Liverpool’s finishing and felt they should have made more of their frenetic 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

Milner, 32, dispatched his 50th Premier League goal just beyond the hour before Alexandre Lacazette’s fine finish eight minutes from time earned the hosts a point.

Virgil van Dijk went close on two occasions and Sadio Mane had a goal controversially ruled out for offside all prior to the opener.

The result means Liverpool, who managed one more shot than the hosts, will slip two points behind Manchester City if the champions beat struggling Southampton on Sunday.

“[We are] very disappointed really, which is a good thing I suppose, playing away at Arsenal,” Milner told his club website.

“To be 1-0 up in the second half and not see it out, we are disappointed.

“With the chances we created we should have scored a few more goals.

“It’s pleasing we are creating those chances, but we could have been a bit more ruthless and maybe not put as much pressure on ourselves not to concede to win the game.”

The Reds have now been held to draws in two of their past four Premier League fixtures, having been fortunate to escape with a stalemate against City last month.
