Arsenal fans experienced a technicolour dreamcoat of emotions during their 2-2 draw with hated rivals Tottenham on Sunday. But, when the full-time whistle sounded, only one feeling lingered - frustration.

When Bukayo Saka stroked home from the penalty spot in the 54th minute to make it 2-1, it felt like the momentum generated would carry the Gunners to victory. They had edged things in the first half after all, with Cristian Romero's own goal being cancelled out by a rare Spurs moment of magic involving James Maddison and Son Heung-min.

However, North London derby games so rarely follow the conventional script and a matter of seconds after Saka's spot-kick, Son and Maddison were performing a highly-choreographed celebration to toast their second equaliser of the game.

Jorginho was the villain of the piece, dawdling on the ball in midfield and allowing Maddison to nick it away before setting the South Korean free. Arsenal did have chances to rectify the error, with the impressive Saka forcing a good save out of Guglielmo Vicario in second-half stoppage time, but it wasn't to be and the spoils were shared.
