Arsenal 2:2 Spurs – Premier League
The hosts took the lead thanks to an own goal from Cristian Romero, which was assisted by Bukayo Saka. The visitors equalized in the second half after captain Son Heung Min poked the ball into the net.
Saka restored the lead for The Gunners in the second half, only for Son to equalize again 20 seconds later.
“We are very disappointed not to win the three points that’s for sure, especially when you go twice in front in the game and you have the opportunity win it, and especially the moment we conceded the goals,” Arteta told the media.
“We had control of the game, that we could’ve scored at 2-0 with a situation with Gabby [Gabriel Jesus], then you concede a goal and you have to bounce back and we did. We scored the goal and it’s a shame within a minute you concede the other one.
“I think that affected the team emotionally quite a lot. We lacked some composure on the ball to get more passes to get in the final third and it became a little bit of a transitional game.
“That’s a risky one to play against them and then we pushed in the last 15, 20, we push, we push, we push, but we lacked probably the quality in the final pass, as well to get the most of it and win the game.” He added.
