The best Twitter reaction to Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

Tom Victor

Arsenal left it late to claim a point in the North London Derby, with Kieran Gibbs turning home a Mesut Özil delivery to cancel out Harry Kane’s opener.

Despite the game being very open in the early stages, neither team could find a breakthrough in the first half-hour.

But then Harry Kane, who scored twice the last time these teams met in the league, found space to slot the opener past Petr Čech to give the visitors a half-time lead.

Arsenal won 2-1 when the sides met in the League Cup, with Mathieu Flamini the unlikely hero, and the Frenchman was introduced again as Arsene Wenger looked for a way back into the game.

Olivier Giroud could, and probably should have levelled. First he headed against the bar from close range, and moments later he planted a free header wide of the post.

Arsenal needed their goalkeeper to come to the rescue when Toby Alderweireld got free in the box, but Čech was up to the task.

Wenger threw the dice, bringing on Kieran Gibbs, and fans weren’t convinced.

But the left-back-turned-winger found an unlikely equaliser.

Neither team could find a winner, though, so Arsenal stay five points ahead of their rivals.
