The scoreline remained the same despite the visitors' exertions in the second half.

Liverpool have already sealed the Premier League title and currently have 93 points. Arsenal, on the other hand, hold the ninth place on the table with 53 points.

Arsenal will next take on Manchester City on July 19. (ANI)
