Adam Lallana admits that Liverpool are disappointed after drawing 2-2 with Arsenal at Anfield today, feeling they clearly dominated the Gunners.

Liverpool started brightly and dominated possession at Anfield, pushing Arsenal back and bossing the game.

The Gunners were poor, but even so, Liverpool struggled to make the breakthough.


The goal did arrive though in the 45th minute after Philippe Coutinho guided a shot home.


But Liverpool would not lead at half-time after Mathieu Debuchy headed Arsenal level from a free-kick in first half injury time.

Liverpool again dominated in the second half, but could not take the chances they created and Arsenal struck once again, through Olivier Giroud in the 64th minute.

The hosts continued to push, but suffered a blow when substitute Fabio Borini was sent off in injury time.

A twist was left in the tail though and, in injury time, Martin Skrtel headed home from a corner, making it 2-2.

But Liverpool and Lallana were disappointed to only draw a game they had 65 per cent of the possession in.

"I thought we were the dominant team throughout the whole game and we created enough chances to get the victory", he told Sky Sports.

"Great credit to Martin Skrtel and the lads, with 10 men to get that was the least we deserved.

"We were bitterly disappointed to concede before half time, especially with them getting a goal at a crucial time of the game.

"It was massively important we got something from the game. We can take momentum from that goal into the Christmas period and need to start turning draws and performances into wins."
