Lloris sees off Penalty, as Spurs salvage point against Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be kicking himself, as Hugo Lloris saw off a late penalty from the Gabonese striker to deny Arsenal all three points against Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs and Arsenal finished on a one all draw, as a first half goal from Aaron Ramsey and a spot kick from Harry Kane ensured both teams left Wembley as equals.

Arsenal made a better start to the fixture, Alexander Lacazette’s left footed shot missing to the right in just a couple of minutes played.

However, the North London club would break the tie with just 16 minutes on the clock. As Juventus bound Aaron Ramsey finished delightfully in front of goal, following a through ball from Lacazette to put Arsenal on the front foot.

Despite having a goal lead, Spurs went in for the break on a better note, as Christian Eriksen and Moussa Sissoko came really close to equalizing minutes before half time.

Both teams continued to go at it after the break, but it was Tottenham who eventually got in on goal. Harry Kane scoring from a penalty after Mustafi had fouled the striker in the area.

Arsenal were granted a glorious opportunity to hand Mauricio Pochettino his third defeat in three games. As Davinson Sánchez had bundled Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the brink of time.

However, Aubameyang spurned the chance, with Arsenal probably feeling a little grieved having been presented with a chance to win it.

The fixture ended in a rather more defusing note for the visitors, who saw Lucas Torreira receive a straight red card for a high challenge on Danny Rose, as both teams settled for a draw.
