Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino praised his side’s efforts at the Emirates.
The away side dominated the North London derby and many fans came away from the match feeling that we did enough to take all three points.
It just shows how much progression we are making under Pochettino when last season we’d have been delighted to take a point from the library.
He said: “I think that we played very well. At 1-0 up was the moment that we had the chance to score again.
“I need to congratulate the players because today we showed great character. You need character and clear ideas. It was an unbelievable effort by the players.”
“The way we played we should feel very proud. The effort was brilliant. The level we showed and the commitment was fantastic. It’s the way we want to carry on.
“In six days we’ve played three matches, maybe we felt it in the final minutes. We need to recognise we are a very young team. This experience is very important.
“We need to show we are maturing. The level we have today is good, we need to show more and to improve. It’s early to set a limit or to expect a lot of things.”
