Arsenal fans reacted with disappointment on Twitter after their team blew the opportunity to go into the international break at the top of the Premier League table.
The Gunners drew 1-1 against Tottenham on Sunday against a Spurs side missing a number of key players including Toby Alderweireld and Eric Lamela.
An own goal from Spurs’ centre-back Kevin Wimmer gave Arsenal the lead but returning striker Harry Kane made an emphatic comeback after he equalised from the penalty spot on the 51st minute.
It was Tottenham’s fifth draw in seven games and Mauricio Pochettino’s side have not recorded a victory since their 2-0 win against Manchester City on the opening weekend of October.
By contrast, the Gunners have been in emphatic form so far this season and were top of the table, level on points with Manchester City and Liverpool ahead of the derby.
Pep Guardiola’s side only managed a draw against Middlesbrough on Saturday but Arsenal were unable to capitalise and Liverpool later demolished Watford 6-1.
Arsenal supporters on social media were disappointed at their side’s failure to overcome Spurs and clinch top spot on Sunday.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Only Tottenham can score 2 goals against Arsenal who never scored but still not win..

It's funny because I remember being abused for not celebrating the title in October 😂 a Liverpool win puts us 4th, Wenger will be relieved
