Danny Murphy: The Gunners showed they care and have heart.

Alexis Sanchez's equaliser saved Arsenal from four straight defeats.

Former Tottenham and Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has heaped praise on Arsene Wenger's side after they came from behind with 10 men to draw 2-2 at White Hart Lane.

The Gunners broke the deadlock through Aaron Ramsey, who finished off Hector Bellerin's pass with a sublime flick, in the 39th minute.

Toby Alderweilder levelled for Mauricio Pochettino's Lilywhites in the 60th minute, five minutes after Francis Coquelin received a second yellow card and was sent off by referee Michael Oliver.

Harry Kane then handed Tottenham a 2-1 lead two minutes after Toby's strike, but Alexis Sanchez responded in the 74th, preventing Arsenal from conceding a fourth defeat in a row.

However, the 2-2 draw left Murphy impressed with Arsenal's all round performance on the day and he also felt it was a fair result for both clubs involved.

"I think a draw is a fair result,” Murphy told BBC Sport.

“It would have been very hard on Arsenal to go away with nothing from this game. They started strongly and did really well to bring themselves back into the game.

“To come back from 2-1 with 10 men, here, with so much pressure, shows that they care and have heart.

“That result still leaves us no clearer as to who will win the league, but what an opportunity for Leicester later today.”
