Hector Bellerin failed to inspire Arsenal to victory as they drew 1-1 with Tottenham at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon – and fans on Twitter felt Bellerin was man of the match.
The Gunners took the lead in the first-half when Spurs centre-back Kevin Wimmer converted into his own net just before the break.
But the returning Harry Kane, who has now scored five league goals against Arsenal converted from the penalty spot after Laurent Koscielny fouled Moussa Dembele.
Right-back Bellerin played the full match, despite missing his side’s 3-2 Champions League win over Ludogorets on Tuesday night.
Nonetheless, the Spaniard was unable to use his pace and power on the left flank to help his side claw another goal in a tense north London derby.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Good thing: 1 point off top
Bad thing: We could've went top with a win
Half our team's nonexistent and Bellerin's crosses are bad #ARSTOT
