Arsenal’s ambition to get themselves back into the top of English Premier League standing got stalled as this Sunday, Arsene Wenger’s men were held into a 1-1 draw by their arch rival, Tottenham Hotspur.
Needing all three points to regain their table topping seat from Chelsea, Gunners put on an aggressive display since kick off, putting their opponent under pressure.
Wenger’s team seem to be on top as they created more goal scoring chances, before eventually breaking the dead lock just before half time break thanks to an own goal from Kevin Wimmer.
However, the tide turns after the break as Spurs were able to improve their performance and starting to create problems for Gunners’ defense.
Eventually, the visitor got themselves an equalizing goal when Harry Kane converted a spot kick on 51 minutes following a foul on Moussa Dembele.
That equalizer, triggered a much more interesting battle as both sides were determined in searching for that elusive winning goal.
Despite both teams’ relentless efforts, none of them were able to convert any of their chances into goals in the remaining minutes forcing that match to end in a disappointing 1-1 draw.
That result doesn’t do much good for either sides as Arsenal practically failed to get into the top, while Spurs continue their struggle in getting three points in recent games.
Although Mauricio Pochettino’s men remain unbeaten in the league, but they have been collecting too many draws, which puts them slightly behind in the race for that top spot seat for now.
