EPL: Arsenal suffer last-minute penalty pain as Spurs share point


Arsenal has suffered a set back to claim home three points as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 89th-minute penalty got into the hand of  Hugo Lloris, missing the follow-up from close range, as Tottenham rode their luck to snatch a point against Arsenal.

Aaron Ramsey had given the gunners a lead 16 minutes into the game capitalising on a mistake by Davinson Sanchez to run through on goal and score and Unai Emery raised some eyebrows by making five changes to the side that thumped Bournemouth, including dropping Ozil and Aubameyang to the bench, but it worked as his side defended solidly as a unit.

While the host had a goal disallowed from Harry Kane’s header for off-side and Bernd Leno made a great double save but they were not at their best.

Spurs came in the second half with a conservative approach of substitutions to counter, but the Gunners continued to dominate.

Shortly, Shkodran Mustafi shoved Kane in the back despite the striker appearing to be off-side which awarded penalty for the host side to wipe off their shame of almost three consecutive defeats to Burnley and Chelsea and Arsenal with a shared point.
