Lacazette bemoans Arsenal's disappointing defensive performance in the North London derby.

Alex Lcazette was left frustrated and disappointed with how Arsenal fell to a 2-1 defeat against local rivals Tottenham in the North London derby.

France forward Lacazette opened the scoring at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a brilliant long-range strike, but the host responded immediately through Heung-min Son who capitalised on Saed Kolasinac's error before hitting the back of the net with a slick finish.

Following the Gunners' defeat to the Lilywhites on Sunday, Lacazette told Arsenal Player: 'I am really disappointed because I think we could do better.

'We gave a lot today but as the coach said, with [small] details a big game can change. It happened today.'

When asked where the game was lost, he said: 'Both [small details and missed chances]. On the set-pieces, we hit the bar as well and that could've gone for us. We changed sides and they had the corner they scored, so in the end, we were unlucky.'

On his superb volley that gave the away side the lead, the ex-Lyon striker replied: 'It was a great goal but at the end we don't win, so it's nothing at the end.'

On the Arsenal squad feel to come away with nothing, he said: 'Disappointed and frustrated. A lot of that frustration.'

Lacazette also said they'll have to pick themselves up for their midweek clash against Premier League champions Liverpool: 'We'll play the best team in the league [on Wednesday] so we have to play well. We still have something to do in the league, so we're going to do everything on Wednesday.'
