Emery reacts to Arsenal's derby stalemate

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has acknowledged that he was impressed with the fightback from his team during the 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

The Gunners were culpable for a couple of individual errors that contributed to Spurs taking a 2-0 lead in the 41st minute.

However, they were able to make a comeback with Alexandre Lacazette's goal just before the break and this was followed up by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's leveller in the 71st minute.

Emery's side were not able to pull off a stunning victory thereafter but the Spaniard was pleased with the effort displayed, he told BBC Sport: "It was an amazing match. We are proud of our work and our supporters. The result isn't the best for us."

With the result, Arsenal have dropped five points behind Liverpool, who are at the top of the table. Still, they are within goal difference off the Champions League places after the opening four games.
