Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was quick to show his frustration as his side could only draw 1-1 with Tottenham on Saturday evening.

The Gunners, 11.00 to reach the Champions League final, fell behind at the Emirates after Nacer Chadli scored his fourth goal in five Premier League games as he latched onto Erik Lamela’s through ball to slot the ball home.

Wenger’s side continued to attack in the north London derby and had several shots blocked but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain managed to equalise with 15 minutes to go.

Arsenal lost Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey to injury in the first-half but Wenger still insists the result frustrated him.
Speaking after the match, he told Sky Sports: “We had a lot of quality and I am frustrated it finished 1-1 because we put the effort in.

“We had great spirit and great determination. On top of that, we were 1-0 down and I think we had 77 per cent possession, which is unbelievable in a game like that.

“I am frustrated because we dropped two points and also because we didn’t do enough with our set-pieces.

“Especially with our corners, we have real room for improvement there, because when you have 14 corners at home and three or four free-kicks around the box, we must do better.

“I give credit to the team for what they did. It shows great potential and great spirit.”

The result ensured Arsenal moved into the top four just behind Chelsea, Manchester City and Southampton.
