Arsenal wears special Leicester armbands - six things you've missed

Premier League Big Guns Arsenal and Liverpool played a very entertaining 1-1 draw on Saturday night.

Liverpool led by James Milner's 50th Premier League goal. Arsenal responded thanks to a nice finish from Alexandre Lacazette.

With all the excitement, there may have been some interesting details that you missed during the action. Fear not, Sportsmail has covered you …

Arsenal armbands carry Leicester badges

Both teams wore black armbands out of respect for the owner of Leicester City, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died tragically in a helicopter crash last week.

However, the Gunners went one step further and wore armbands embroidered with a fox – the symbol of the Midlands Club.

Although this is just a small gesture, it still shows the true camaraderie between Premier League clubs in a very difficult time.

Ranieri in the stands

Earlier in the day, Leicester played for the first time since the terrible events of last Saturday when they played Cardiff City in a very emotional match.

While many notable Leicester faces were present in Wales, Claudio Ranieri, who led the Foxes to their impressive Premier League title in 2016, was instead a spectator at the Emirates Stadium.

He will surely have been touched by the impeccable silence that was observed in the memory of Srivaddhanaprabha before the match.

Shaqiri's look of love

In the action itself, and still ten minutes ahead of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp wanted to brush up his attack with Xherdan Shaqiri.

When he explained his tactics to the Swiss international, Shaqiri was watched by the television cameras hanging on every word from Klopp.

A social media junker puts it this way: "Get a girl who looks at you the way Shaqiri looks at Klopp."

Arsenal fans go fast to Torreira

Under Arsene Wenger, Arsenal fans have been demanding for years that the club sign a defensive midfielder. They finally have one under Unai Emery.

Lucas Torreira was great against Liverpool and after a slow start in North London he is a fan favorite.

If the popularity of a player can be measured by the number of memes and GIFs that have been released in his honor – and let's be honest, you know – then Torreira is certainly the arsenal of the month.

The Liverpool fan asks Ferdinand for a picture … and gets a shock

Before the game, Liverpool's supporter Joe Jaggar decided to take a photo of the occasion with his young son – and asked a passerby to take a picture of the two.

The passerby happened to be Rio Ferdinand, on the way to a pompous appearance for BT Sport – and as a former defender of Manchester United not someone with the greatest love of Liverpool fans.

This showed a selfie that Ferdinand had done on Joe's cell phone, which made the Reds follower happy with Twitter.
