EPL: Arsenal fight back against Spurs to draw London derby

EPL: Arsenal fight back against Spurs to draw London derby”

Sokratis also had a bad game against Tottenham, with a mistake in the build up to Christian Eriksen's goal.

Managers will always talk up the importance of performances, but supporters are more interested in the cold reality of the final score, which is why Arsenal head coach Unai Emery will have left the Emirates feeling like the big victor of Sunday's pulsating North London derby against Tottenham.

Eriksen's future has been uncertain after he expressed his desire to "try something new" in the wake of Spurs' Champions League final defeat.

Arsenal had most of the ball on a sun-soaked afternoon at the Emirates Stadium but Tottenham were far more threatening on the break and Leno was forced to keep out stinging efforts from Kane and Eriksen in the first half. The team wasn't settled and I told you from day one of pre-season that I wasn't happy. "I want to say it is going to be impossible but it is going to be hard (for him to leave)".

"Nothing is impossible in football, [but] I am optimistic".

Eriksen's situation has been the most unsettled after he spoke about a desire for a fresh challenge, but the move to a top European club he wished for has not materialised. I hope everything will be clear for everyone.

"It was a great pass from Guendouzi [for the goal] - he looks at me and he knows I'm going to run", he said.

"It's important for all of us to be on the same page at the club".

"If we win that match maybe we'd talk about that action less". "Tomorrow [when the window shuts] they are going to be only focused, 100%, in Tottenham - not thinking different things that make management so hard".

He added: "The result, we deserved more. We have to learn from our mistake and from now we have to decide on a strategy that ensures we are going to be in the position we deserve to be".

As well as toasting the closing transfer window, Spurs could also have been celebrating three points at Arsenal having led 2-0 in a thrilling north London derby. Alexandre Lacazette reduced the deficit on the stroke of half-time with a superbly taken goal before his strike partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deservedly pulled Arsenal level 20 minutes from time. Their movement, [in] the second half, we controlled better than the first. For them the same they were down and suddenly their emotion was high and the belief in football is about emotions. For sure, if we don't concede at the end of the first half, I think we will win the game. All in all it is a point and we need to accept it. "That is the most important". On the pitch there was no victor, with Arsenal and Spurs taking a point each from a game that saw the home side trail 2-1 at half-time before salvaging a draw with a stirring second-half fightback.

"The key was the first goal to give us confidence and give us more chances in the second half".
