Best Twitter Reactions As Arsenal Drew 2-2 Against Tottenham And 3 Things We Learned From The Game

The match was billed as the one which could decide the fate of the Premier League title but Tottenham and Arsenal could not be separated in a pulsating and exciting derby. Leicester are still on top of the table, even without having played a game, though they do face Watford later, thanks to the draw at White Hart Lane.

It was Arsenal who took the lead thanks to Aaron Ramsey but Tottenham struck back in the second half with goals from Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane, this while Arsenal had Francis Coquelin sent off.

The win was for spurs to take up but Arsenal, with Alexis Sanchez, struck back in the 76th minute and ensured that both teams leave the Lane with one point. We look back at a great game and highlight the three things we learned.

Sanchez plays a telling role

Alexis Sanchez might be one of the most talented players in the league but he hadn’t scored for Arsenal since October and that was a telling stat in itself. Sanchez though came up with the goods at an important time as he got the equaliser when Arsenal were a man down.

It was just like the Chilean and his short but eventful career at Arsenal to come up with an important goal at an important time for Arsenal. This could well be the goal that turns on the fire in the Chilean and he could be crucial to Arsenal’s chances in the run up to the Premier League title.

Coquelin might be good but he isn’t smart

Arsenal fans have always stated that they have found their answer to the defensive midfielder’s problem with Francis Coquelin but for all his ability on the field, we have no idea what he was thinking regarding both his yellow cards.

The first one was a blatant hand-ball when he tried to stop Tottenham going out on attack and in the second one, when you already are on a card, you don’t go lunging into a tackle against a player who is out near the side-lines and looking for a foul. Coquelin will now miss one game but more than that, his brain went missing, Arsene Wenger was fuming since Arsenal were in the driving seat before the sending off and Coquelin could have cost Arsenal two points.

Both teams still have a great chance

The draw might have left both teams looking and hoping that Leicester drop points but the teams still have a chance of making it to the top of the Premier League summit. Arsenal and Tottenham have better squads in terms of talent compared to Leicester and the form that Spurs showed before their loss to West Ham certainly shows that they can achieve the title.

Arsenal would have probably been out of the title race had it been a loss against Spurs but they got back in the game, even when they were down to 10-men. The league still has nine games to go and both teams can still get the job done, if they play to their potential.
