The first North London derby of the season ends in a draw to continue both teams unbeaten runs. Arsenal took the lead through a Wimmer own goal before Koscielny conceded a penalty to allow Kane to level the match. The game was fairly even throughout although, Arsenal were dominant in the last 25 minutes of each half.

Cech – 7 – Made a good save from Eriksen but nearly cost Arsenal when slipping outside of his box.

Bellerin – 7 – Played well offensively and defensively.

Mustafi – 7 – Had a couple of nervous moments but did well generally. Mustafi showed his leadership skills in the first half as he was barking out orders.

Koscielny – 6 – Conceded a lot of cheap fouls as well as the penalty.

Monreal – 7 – Looked solid defensively throughout and made a great block in the second half.

Coquelin – 7 – Coquelin was solid throughout showing the passion which all Arsenal fans demand.  A couple of excellent tackles in the first half before he was substituted.

Xhaka – 7 – Was disciplined all game and played well alongside Coquelin.

Walcott – 6 – Had a quiet game but did hit the post with a thunderous shot.

Ӧzil – 8 – Ӧzil was excellent all match and was involved in all the good things and grabbed an assist for the own goal.

Iwobi – 6 – Should have scored in the first half but didn’t look like he was in the game that much.

Sanchez – 6 – Was quiet for most of the afternoon but did look a threat when he got in behind.

Subs

Ramsey – 6 – Had a couple of shots once he came on but didn’t have much influence.

Giroud – 6 – Looked a threat in the air and gave Arsenal another option.

Oxlade – Chamberlain – 6 – Didn’t have any impact apart from giving fouls away.

Overall, a point was fair enough and means we remain unbeaten. There has been an overreaction on social media but this is a good point if you put it into perspective.  Arsenal’s next game is Manchester United after the international break which means Arsenal need to try and get a win to keep up the pressure on their rivals.

The Ox was not good today, just gave away fouls. A pretty lethargic performance all round. What happened?

Chamberlain should have started in place of iwobi, i think he would score that goal. I don't know what happened with Alexis during the game, he just seemed to quit on it.

Honestly im very disappointed at the display of arsenal players today there were nervous jettery no purpose no zeal and no winning mentality infact the rating was over blown out of proportion none of the players merited upto 6% if not for an own goal it should have been lost today is this how we are going to play manchester united? Arsene wenger should talk to this boys imagine spurs won every ball contested with ease and arsenal players where left chasing shadows.Today performance is not acceptable at all.

Walcott=2, Iwobi=2, Cechs distribution =7 for spuds, Alexis=4, ox=0, Ramsey should be sold for new boots for the team.
