Mousa Dembele has emerged as a key Tottenham player

By Emma Sanders

Mousa Dembele claimed it was a “better” performance from Tottenham on Sunday afternoon after they recorded a 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Sunday.

Spurs have now not won in seven matches, and have failed to triumph in the league since beating Manchester City on 2 October, but they impressed at Emirates Stadium in the absence of key men Dele Alli, Erik Lamela and Toby Alderweireld.

Dembele, 29, was one of Tottenham’s best performers as they worked tirelessly to stop an Arsenal side in top form going into the match.

He won the penalty that was converted by fit-again Harry Kane, who marked his comeback with his third goal of the season.

Tottenham remain the only unbeaten team in the Premier League but they have drawn five of their last seven league matches and are currently in fifth position.

Arsenal dropped into fourth position in the league despite having an opportunity to move to the top of the table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side next face West Ham at White Hart Lane and they will be hoping to improve after suffering poor form in recent weeks.
