Kane and Lloris rescue point for Spurs against Arsenal

  • Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery

At Wembley, as the clock ticked down in an eventful north London derby, referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot for the second time when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang went down softly under a challenge from Davinson Sanchez. The Gunners defended so incredibly well until a set-piece, where Harry Kane was blatantly offside, gave way to a pen, when Shkodran Mustafi so foolishly clattered into the back of Kane.

It follows Pochettino's criticism of Michael Oliver last month, and his spat with Mike Dean at Burnley last weekend, after which he was charged with improper conduct.

But Kane won and converted a 74th-minute penalty amid strong suspicions of offside - and that was only the start of the late drama. That changed the dynamic of the game. So I think Iwobi is giving a lot for us.

"If the foul was for us we could have scored a goal".

Here, Press Association Sport takes a closer look at how Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and Arsenal head coach Unai Emery fared.

An action-packed game. Goals at both ends.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then had a 90th minute penalty kick saved by Hugo Lloris as Arsenal missed the ideal chance to close the gap to their bitter rivals with Lucas Torreira sent off in stoppage time for the Gunners.

"It was hard after the Burnley defeat and after Chelsea it's almost impossible, very hard", Pochettino added.

"It wasn't only [him who had] a bad night on Wednesday - the whole team, not only Hugo", Pochettino said. Harry is one of the best strikers, players in the world. He does not need to show that.

That leaves Pochettino's side looking over their shoulders in the race for the top four and defeat in the north London derby against Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday would leave them just a point clear of the Gunners.

"Was it more than a draw?".

"I cannot change opinions and everyone can judge us in a different way", he said ahead of Saturday's north London derby with Arsenal.

It was tough because to concede after 15 minutes was tough for us.

"I think it's more than winning a cup". "We will prepare to deliver the best performance individually and collectively". After two defeats it was important today to build again our positive ways.

Both teams went in search of a decisive third and although chances were not being created, Arsenal were provided with the opportunity to score their own penalty when Sanchez was harshly adjudged to have pushed Aubameyang.
