Deep into stoppage-time, substitute Nicklas Bendtner smashed home a knock-down by Emmanuel Adebayor to rescue a point for the Gunners, who are now just a point clear of Manchester United at the top of the table.
The Arsenal boss declared: "The point we gained will have a big impact on the league. If we had lost, that would be different, but we are still top. Everyone goes through a bad spell, but every point gained is of vital importance."
