Aubameyang believes Arsenal deserved more from the north London derby.

Updated: Sep 3, 2019



Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says his side deserved more than a point in the north London derby.


The Gunners came from two goals down to seal a 2-2 draw with Tottenham at the Emirates on Sunday.


Christian Eriksen scored the first goal from close range before Harry Kane doubled the lead from the penalty spot after Heung-Min Son was fouled by midfield ace Granit Xhaka.


The Gunners fought hard and got their reward as Alexandre Lacazette halved the deficit at the stroke of half time before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted Mattéo Guendouzi's sublime pass to score the equaliser in the 71st minute as both sides shared points.


Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, the Gabon international said they could have scored more goals and also hailed the pass from Guendouzi that led to the equaliser.


He said: "I think in the first half we deserved to score two goals. We did a great job. It was a tough game and I think we deserved more. When you go in the dressing room after scoring a goal it is always positive so it was crucial to score then.


"It was a great pass from Guendouzi [for the goal] - he looks at me and he knows I’m going to run. I like to play as a striker but when the team needs me on the wing I go and I try my best."


Aubameyang has scored in seven successive Premier League starts at the Emirates. Only Thierry Henry in October 2000 went on a longer run at home for the Gunners in the competition (nine at Highbury).
