As Mahrez scored the winner for Leicester City against Watford, the title looks almost over for Gunners. 8 points behind leaders, Arsenal will rue the 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane.
The North London Derby was an opportunity for either Spurs or Arsenal to get closer to Leicester City but Tottenham failed to hold on to a 2-1 lead just as Ramsey failed to grab the winner late on. The Welsh man had flicked Arsenal ahead before the half after Tottenham failed to convert none of their chances.
Ten-man Arsenal produced a performance of real grit to secure a 2-2 draw from a typically frenetic north London derby at White Hart Lane. The Gunners seemed to be heading for a damaging defeat when, after Francis Coquelin was sent off for two bookable offences at the start of the second half, the hosts scored twice in quick succession.
Wenger’s reaction to Coquelin’s red tells you all. The manager must have been livid at that moment but these are his quotes after the match:
I didn’t have to say a lot to him after that tackle. He made a mistake and he knows he made a big mistake. At half time we warned him as well and it was a mistake. He wanted to do well and mistimed his tackle and got sent off. You cannot complain about it. I can complain that Dier was not sent off. I couldn’t understand that.
Alexis Sanchez grabbed the equalizer to level things at White Hart Lane. Bellerin was sloppy in the game but made amends with two assists to his name. Ospina provided a good number of saves but could do little as Kane got his television goal.
It is quite unclear if the Gunners are still in the title race but mathematically there is a chance. Unfortunately, football is not mathematics. Who would have believed that West Brom will defeat Manchester United today? You never can tell.
Keep the faith. There is still a possibility. We wanted all three points but the draw was better than none.
