Arsenal came back from two goals down against Tottenham to draw 2-2 in the Premier League on Sunday, with the Gunners' much-anticipated attacking trio unable to see off their fierce London rivals.
Spurs shocked the home fans at Emirates Stadium to take an early lead in the 10th minute, when Spurs forward Christian Eriksen capitalized on an error from goalkeeper Bernd Leno to slot the ball home. Harry Kane later doubled the lead with a penalty kick after Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka's reckless tackle on Son Heung-min left referee Martin Atkinson no choice but to point to the spot.
Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette pulled one back just before halftime to make it 2-1.
Arsenal then regained a foothold in the game, putting pressure on Tottenham's back line. Arsenal thought it had a winner minutes later when defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos bundled the ball over the line, sparking wild celebrations among the home crowd. But an offside decision against Sead Kolasanic was upheld by VAR and the score stood at 2-2.
