Aubameyang fluffs his lines as Arsenal settle for derby draw

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has praised Henrikh Mkhitaryan for his recent form after the Armenia worldwide delivered another good performance in Saturday's 1-1 draw with north London rivals Tottenham, The Independent reports.

- Aaron Ramsey's opener cancelled out Harry Kane's penalty goal.

Spurs went behind after 16 minutes but managed to break down a tight Arsenal defence to earn the point. But I am so happy with the character and personality that we played with. It's not easy, we know that, but we keep working.

For his part, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said VAR would probably help match officials but the important point would be how the technology was applied.

However, otherwise Unai Emery has no fresh concerns to worry about as the likes of Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Laurent Koscielny and Alex Iwobi have all shaken off minor problems to return to action in recent games.

"We need to show that on the pitch".

"If we assess the game I think we were better than Arsenal in all the aspects", Pochettino said after the game, as quoted by Sky Sports.

The draw leaves a four-point gap between the north London rivals with nine games to go. It was tough because to concede after 15 minutes was tough for us.

It is true there are still some very big clubs left in the Europa League knockouts, and we could start getting even harder games from the quarter finals onwards.

Overall, Emery felt his side had done enough to win the game and had played well together.

At the end you have to look at all of the circumstances, the circumstances were hard and a massive save from Hugo helped us get a point to build a positive run again.

"It's a great chance for Ramsey to play with some new players, including the likes of [Cristiano] Ronaldo and I wish him the best of luck".

Kane thought that he had found an equaliser eight minutes later when powering a super header into the top corner, but the forward was one of three Spurs players who were half a yard offside from a free kick.
