Tottenham Coach Proud Of Sides Draw With Arsenal

Mauricio Pochettino says he was delighted with Tottenham's performance against Arsenal but accepts they should have killed the game off.

He says was proud of the effort of his team despite the fact that they could have carried all three points and looked on only to be punished for failing to kill off Arsenal.

Their live wire Harry Kane put Spurs ahead at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday before Kieran Gibbs put in a late effort to grab a second-half equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw for Arsenal.

It took a Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld in the second half to test the agility of Petr Cech who was coming from a Uefa encounter with Bayern Munich where he had let in five.

In the end, Pochettino was left to rue his team's failure to earn a decisive lead, but was full of praise for his players' efforts in what was their third match in just six days.

Kane however could not hide his frustrations when he spoke to BBC Sport for his side’s failure to double their lead but believes Spurs proved they have the fitness to compete on all fronts this season.

Crystal Palace inflicted a first Liverpool defeat on new manager Jurgen Klopp with a late Scott Dann goal giving the visitors a 2-1 win at Anfield.

Alan Pardew’s men took the lead through Yannick Bolasie before a fine strike by Philippe Coutinho just before half-time.

Bolasie scores from a half volley; Coutinho equalized but Scott Dann scores late in the game to hand Jurgen Klopp his first defeat.
