Arsenal was close to collecting three points from the North London Derby but poor decisions from referees and Aubameyang missing a penalty saw Unai Emery go home with just one point. The Arsenal coach had got it right with his tactics on Saturday but some mistakes in the last minutes of the game saw the gunners drop two points.
The gunners came into this game with an intent of defending so that they can win it in the second half with their very strong bench and this tactic worked well because an early goal saw Unai Emery’s men now defend confidently as they held onto their 0-1 lead until the referee blew the whistle for the halftime break.
Tottenham Hotspur equalised in the last minutes of the game but Arsenal got a chance to bury the game but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw his penalty saved hence the score line staying 1-1. It was a devastating result for the gunners because they were simply the better team even though Tottenham Hotspur were having most of the possession. Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said that he is proud of his team in his post-match press conference.
“I am proud of the players, of our work and then you can win, you can lose, you can draw like we did. But above all, we played like a team, feeling together and pushing individually and collectively.” Unai Emery told Arsenal’s official website.
“After the adaptation to the match was good, our moments in 90 minutes, they were strong for us to think that also we could win this match.”
