Goalscorers react to today's North London derby

Both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Nacer Chadli were unsurprisingly thrilled with their contributions to today's North London derby as Tottenham grabbed a share of the spoils at the Emirates, holding Arsenal to a 1-1 draw.

Belgian international Nacer Chadli gave Tottenham the lead early in the second half, latching on to Erik Lamela's inch perfect pass and slotting the ball across goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and into the Arsenal goal.

He said after the game, "I'm very happy to score in the derby. Erik gave me the ball and I just tried to shoot into the far corner."

Arsenal continued to drop points at home in the Premier League this season as they were held to their 4th draw in 6 games in the League this year as the Gunners came back from a goal down to ensure a share of the spoils against a very ordinary Tottenham side at the Emirates.

Arsenal bossed the game completely over the 90 minutes, having had almost 70% of the ball, but failed to create enough clear cut opportunities with a lot of their play very one dimensional in the absence of Olivier Giroud. As a result, Tottenham defended stoutly for large periods and even took the lead against the run of play in the 56th minute with Nacer Chadli grabbing a goal after Mathieu Flamini was caught in possession by Christian Eriksen, who released Erik Lamela, who in turn found the Belgian.

Liverpool Manager Brendan Rodgers was visibly disappointed to have been denied all three points in the Merseyside derby today as a last ditch equalizer from Phil Jagielka prevented the Reds from getting a deserved victory at Anfield.
