Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has taken to social media to apologise to Arsenal fans after he missed a late penalty in the 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday.

Arsenal got the first chance to score in this tie in the sixth minute when Nigerian star Alex Iwobi set up Aaron Ramsey with a brilliant pass, but he was stopped by the referee for an offside.

'I'm proud of the players, of our work, ' Emery said after the final whistle.

Arsenal penalty: Hugo Lloris saves from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang WRONG - Referee Anthony Taylor got this one wrong and what a big decision it was, in the 88th minute of a north London derby.

Arsenal looked comfortable but Spurs were gifted a way back into the contest with 17 minutes remaining after Shkodran Mustafi barged into Kane inside the penalty area.

The game could easily have panned out differently had it not been for a brilliant double save by Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno on the stroke of half-time.

"I think it was a fantastic game, such an exciting game, a great atmosphere with two teams who wanted to play and win the game", the Argentinian said.

Tottenham went into this encounter having lost their last two games, and the expectation of their fans was to soar against the Gunners, but they were disappointed.

"It's tough to play Arsenal, conceding after 15 minutes was tough for us".

Overall, Emery felt his side had done enough to win the game and had played well together.

Despite the fact that Spurs have dropped important points - they are only three points clear of Manchester United and four points ahead of Arsenal - Mauricio Pochettino said that he was happy with his side's performance. For us it was important to stop the losing streak, at this point it might give us a little boost with a big game in the Champions League and then Southampton.

At the end you have to look at all of the circumstances, the circumstances were hard and a massive save from Hugo helped us get a point to build a positive run again.

Sokratis has been getting back to his best in recent games after recovering from an ankle injury and the Greek worldwide once again lined-up alongside Laurent Koscielny at the heart of Arsenal's defence earlier today.
