That’s that then. The first Premier League North London derby of the season ends all square at the Emirates.
Tottenham were incredibly unfortunate not to win, going 1-0 up in the first half through Harry Kane.
Spurs played Arsenal off the pitch with plenty of incisive passing and a superb attitude. Erik Lamela and Dele Alli were arguably the stand out performers for the visitors.
Kieran Gibbs equalised for Arsenal and the hosts looked the more likely to win it in the end, but Tottenham held on admirably.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result.
Cracking North London derby. Whatever the result there is no doubt in my mind that Spurs are on the right track with Pochettino.

Would have taken a draw before the game but after that performance I'm absolutely gutted ?

I'm so glad the 2014/15 season was extended by 12 months so Harry Kane could improve his one season wonder exploits. Thanks, @premierleague.

We outplayed them for 70 mins in their own backyard. Unlucky not to walk away with all the points but still, the unbeaten run continues.

Would've taken a point before the game but pissed at that now, Spurs were by far the better team

Disappointment for Spurs. Infinitely the better team, conceded a really poor goal. Still should take plenty from the performance.

Should have been 2 up by the time they woke up. They were spent. But take that all day long.

I'll take that. Pochettino is a special guy. #COYS

Big shame not to win that, but a very assured performance! You never want to lose these but a tad more clinical and we'd be celebrating.

Pochettino goes over to acknowledge the away end, gets a loud roar of applause.

Haven't lost since the opening day. Played a title chasing team off their own park for over an hour. Spine littered with youth. Very proud.

The fact we are disappointed with a draw at the Emirates tells you everything about how far this team and manager have come

#coys I feel hollow saying this kind of thing (because we deserved to win) but so many positives from that performance.

Would've given a toe for a point considering their league form, so can't be too blue with that. Unbeaten since opening day! Opening day!

The real man of the match: Mauricio Pochettino.

Disappointed we didn't win it. Immense performance until we let them off the hook. Needed that second. Almost got it a couple of times.
