Granit Xhaka: Champions League would be big step for this Arsenal

Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi fouls Tottenham’s Harry Kane resulting in a penalty during their Premier League match at Wembley Stadium London

The Argentinian saw his side rescue a point in the second half, with Harry Kane's second half penalty cancelling out Aaron Ramsey's first half strike for the Gunners.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino thanked Lloris for giving him a "massive present" on his 47th birthday but said he had not needed to prove anything.

"I think that we had in the beginning of the year a lot of injured players". "He wasn't responsible for Wednesday's defeat".

"It was a big save from Hugo and a big block from Jan after as well so it was an important point for us".

The result - and any confidence taken from Vertonghen's critical piece of defending - could be very timely as Tottenham take on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday looking to protect a 3-0 lead from the first leg.

Premier League legend Robert Pires has revealed that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba wanted a transfer to Spanish champions Barcelona while he was struggling to make a positive impact at the club.

"But I think that the action that changed the game was after 12 minutes".

Granit Xhaka has insisted Arsenal's priority this season is to finish in the top four rather than win the Europa League.

Kane thought that he had found an equaliser eight minutes later when powering a super header into the top corner, but the forward was one of three Spurs players who were half a yard offside from a free kick.

Both teams went in search of a decisive third and although chances were not being created, Arsenal were provided with the opportunity to score their own penalty when Sanchez was harshly adjudged to have pushed Aubameyang.

He added: "I prepared myself to (start all three)".

The Reds are chasing a first Premier League title since 1990, one that will take their tally of PL trophies to 19. "You can win, you can lose, you can draw, but above all it's playing like a team", he said.

Pochettino admits that the events of the final few minutes of the game might have made it look that Tottenham escaped with a point, but he believes his side were better than Arsenal.

"Of course the key will be how we use the VAR".
