Gibbs disappointed with draw.

Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs has expressed disappointment at the Gunners' draw with rivals Tottenham Hotspurs.

Gibbs scored the equaliser in the second half of the 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday after Harry Kane gave the visitors the lead in the first half.

"We are disappointed obviously, with Manchester City dropping points we had a good opportunity," said Gibbs, reports "It was important not to lose this game but now the international break, we can recover for a few players and they can come back fit and we can push on after."

He also gave his view on playing an advanced role in the game.

"Possibly because in the last few games we have not had midfielders. It has been difficult for the boss with options so in the last few games I have been coming on and I knew, looking across the bench that, probably, even though I’m a defender I’m one of the more offensive players on the bench. I was happy to come on in a big game like that and get a goal.

"The boss has been struggling with options especially in midfield and up front, so I think a few of the boys were tired having played last weekend, midweek and today. It was a chance for me to bring on some fresh legs and do everything I can to try and help the boys."
