Made a welcome return from injury and produced a solid performance. Not the busiest afternoon but the Pole was efficient with his handling and distribution. Two sharp saves in the second half to deny Suarez.
The Ivorian was solid until a pointless, clumsy challenge on Lucas for the Liverpool penalty. First-half effort blocked by Skrtel before trickling across the six-yard box.
Played as the sweeper while Djourou man-marked Carroll and it worked as the French centre-back made some telling interceptions - although he tended to dive in with an element of risk. Header from six-yards in the first-half nearly opened the scoring but rattled against the crossbar.
A solid performance from the full-back, untroubled in defence but offered little forward support for Nasri.
The Swiss defender made a shock return from a shoulder injury that was expected to rule him out for the rest of the season. Looked like he had never been away as he showed anticipation, strength and aerial ability against Carroll and Suarez.
Early header flashed just wide of the post but failed to impose himself on the game as he sat deep, lacking the energy he showed at Blackpool last week.
Nowhere near his early season form as he drifted in and out of the game. Seemed to lack the pace and the ideas to threaten Liverpool until he produced a lovely touch to play in Van Persie.
Some classy touches from the youngster but surprisingly he was unable to deliver any killer passes in the 71 minutes before he was substituted.
The Arsenal captain was the creative fulcrum for the hosts, picking the ball up in space and looking to play decisive passes. His ability to get on the ball forced Liverpool to switch formation and he kept trying until the end.
R. van Persie
Sweet left foot was always a threat and the Dutchman missed a glorious late chance as he smashed the ball straight at Reina. Linked up play well and delivered some dangerous set-pieces, including his injury time penalty which looked to have won the game.
His pace caused problems for rookie full-back Robinson and appeared the Gunners' most dangerous outlet. Fans grew impatient with his awful crossing and so did Arsene Wenger as he replaced the winger in the 72nd minute.
Some uncharacteristically shaky moments early on from the Spaniard as he fumbled shots and failed to claim high deliveries in the box. Responded in the second-half with a brilliant save to stop Van Persie from close range and far more reliable handling.
Marshalled the Liverpool defence with strong tackles and important interceptions as Arsenal dominated the ball in the first-half. Required oxygen as he was taken off on a stretcher following a horrible-looking clash of heads with Flanagan.
The Brazilian made a solid, committed start up against Walcott but was replaced after 20 minutes suffering from a hamstring injury.
His second Liverpool start in the Premier League and his second excellent display. Clever positioning and tenacious tackling to deny Arsenal a route to goal. Clashed heads with Carragher but didn't let it affect him.
Strong performance and produced countless blocks and last-ditch challenges.
The Portuguese midfielder had few opportunities to demonstrate his quality in the final third but worked hard throughout and looked a threat when the visitors tried to counter-attack.
Played in a less dynamic role than in the win over Manchester City but was nevertheless important in securing a point for his side. The Brazilian held his position well, denying Arsenal space as he put pressure on the likes of Wilshere and Fabregas.
The player who least deserved to give away the decisive penalty but can have no arguments following his challenge on Fabregas deep into added time. Soured a highly impressive performance from the youngster as he snapped into tackles and did everything he could to deny the home players time on the ball. Read the play well and tidy in possession.
The £35m man started the game impressively as he won headers and tried to bully the Arsenal defenders. Quality of service faded and so did his contribution, as a knee injury eventually forced him off 20 minutes from time.
Kept his cool with a brilliant penalty in the 13th minute of added time. A typically industrious performance from the Dutchman as he never neglected his defensive duties. Hassled and harried the Arsenal players and played in Suarez with a lovely pass.
The Uruguayan produced his worst 45 minutes in a Liverpool shirt in the first-half as he constantly gave the ball away. Immediately looked sharper after the break as he picked the ball up in space and ran at Arsenal defenders. Sliced great chance wide from a tight angle.

Replaced Diaby in the 81st minute and added fresh legs.
The Russian replaced Walcott in the 72nd minute but had little impact despite one dangerous cross.
- 29 M. Chamakh
Replaced Wilshere in the 72nd minute but never presented with a chance to change the game.
- P. Gulácsi
The 17-year-old made his Liverpool debut after replacing Aurelio in the 21st minute. Started off nervously but hugely improved as the game wore on.
Replaced Carragher in the 62nd minute and was strong and committed as he denied the hosts space in the box.
- 17 M. Rodríguez
- 10 J. Cole
Replaced Carroll 20 minutes from time. Always eager to get on the ball and involved in the late free-kick before the penalty award.
