Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang misses injury-time penalty as Spurs and Arsenal draw


There was no separating Spurs and Arsenal at Wembley during a dramatic north London derby on Saturday lunchtime.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed an injury-time penalty to give Arsenal the win after he was brought down in the box by Davinson Sanchez.

Lloris palmed Aubameyang's penalty away and Jan Vertonghen somehow cleared from the rebound.

In the first-half, Aaron Ramsey scored his fourth goal at Wembley to give the away side the lead.

Davinson Sanchez’s mistake allowed Alexandre Lacazette to slip the ball through to Ramsey, who rounded Hugo Lloris to finish.

But with 16 minutes remaining, Spurs drew level.

Harry Kane appeared to be offside when Christian Eriksen whipped in a free-kick.

But the assistant referee kept his flag down. Kane was then shoved in the back by Shkodran Mustafi giving Spurs the chance to equalise from the spot.

But then the game really came alive as both sides went for the win.


And as the game entered injury-time, Aubameyang was brought down in the box by Sanchez.

The Arsenal striker stepped up and looks set to seal all three points. However, his tame spot-kick was saved by Lloris and, somehow, Jan Vertonghen prevented him from scoring seconds later.

There was still time for even more drama.

Lucas Torreria was shown a straight red card for a rash tackle on Danny Rose.


The draw leaves Arsenal four points adrift of Spurs in the race for the top-four.

Meanwhile, Spurs will surely now consider themselves out of the title-race as they are now three league games without a win.
