TWEETS: Ozil & Mertesacker React On Twitter To Spurs Draw

By on September 28, 2014

It turned out to be a disappointing North London derby for Arsenal with an unadventurous Tottenham side holding out for a point at the Emirates on Saturday.

The visitors took advantage of a lapse in concentration from Mathieu Flamini to take the lead early in the second half before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fired home the equaliser.

Despite dominating for much of the game, we failed to create many clear-cut chances and Spurs ground out a draw to make it just two wins from our opening six games for Arsenal.

After the match, Mesut Ozil took to Twitter to express his disappointment at only being able to secure a point despite enjoying 70% possession and forcing 15 corners, but the German feels we can build on our performance in the second half.

Per Mertesacker also made an appearance on the social network to thank the fans for their support yesterday.

It was a missed opportunity to claim the three points as Spurs were there for the taking but we’ll have to bounce back quickly as we’ve got two huge games coming up against Galatasaray and Chelsea.

    Possession means nothing.

    Pochettino tactics was to sit back, wait for mistake and counter with pace.

    However, Pochettino tactics were never been with possession. Even with Southampton, they are not a team that kept the ball well, but a team that presses with high intensity and making the opposition to lose the possession – hence more possession.

    There were glimpses of Southampton in Spurs yesterday, but you can tell still a long way before the philosophy is truly adopted.

    A point is well deserved, and fair result. Arsenal did not have many clear cut chances as Spurs, and mainly long range efforts. But Spurs did invite pressure after conceding, which credit to Arsenal piling on the pressure.

    What tripe, this would be less farcical if as I am sure most will remember the performance of Wenger’s team in the FA Cup Final against Manchester United, they defended from start to finish, wasted time at every opportunity knowing their only chance to win the game was the penalty kick decider. This manager is one of the best there has been in the premiership, he seems to have the opinion that he can do anything to win a game, but it is not allowable to do it to his team. As a human being he has no grace, he is a nasty piece of work.

    Arsenal played exactly the way Spurs thought and usually Spurs are very adept at the counter attack but due to Daniel Levy & Co they didn’t bother with buying a striker and so Spurs couldn’t turn their attacks into goals. It’s truly amazing how only half of Wenger’s brain works when it comes to watching his side play, hence every tackle made by the opposing side is a foul and every foul Arsenal commit is not a foul.

    i hate it to always read the headlines, ati “WENGER BEMOANS DEFENSIVE ERRORS” cmon! how about OFFENSIVE WEAKNESSES!? is a defence tht leaks a goal or two error prone? wat do you expect, to never concede at ALL? AC MILAN conceded 4 goals, but they score 5 in return! NO DEFENCE, NO PROBLEM! if Dortmund score 2, why can’t our offence score 3? our offence ain’t doin enough!! look at City, how do they win? they concede but then they score more! COYG! will we wait til we stop conceding goals in order to win a match?
