Arsenal boss Unai Emery insists his side deserved to beat Tottenham on Sunday.
The Gunners came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Spurs in a memorable north London derby.
Christian Eriksen and a Harry Kane penalty had given Tottenham a comfortable lead, before strikes from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ensured the points were shared.
The Gunners had 26 shots compared to Spurs’ 13 attempts – and had a late Sokratis Papastathopoulos goal ruled out for offside.
Speaking to talkSPORT’s Ian ‘The Moose’ Abrahams, Emery said: “When we were losing 2-0, we can be happy after it’s 2-2, but I think in 90 minutes, we deserved it more.
“We created more chances to score and I think we played looking at their goal, and also, being very aggressive against them.
“They used our mistakes for their two goals, and after our response was amazing.
“Our supporters supported us and pushed us to do that and really that point is not enough, but it’s the way.”
Emery reckons Arsenal can be even better than their dominating second-half performance.
