'Our fans never stopped' - Christian

Christian Eriksen was keen to point out how our players weren’t the only ones who gave their all for 90-plus minutes at the Emirates on Sunday.

We produced a high-energy display in what was our third game in six days in all competitions, pressing the Gunners back at every opportunity amid a passionate North London derby atmosphere.

Harry Kane’s first half opener was ultimately cancelled out by Kieran Gibbs as the game ended 1-1, but Christian felt our performance warranted more than a share of the spoils and underlined how the tremendous endeavour on the pitch was matched by our supporters in the away end.

“Our fans were behind us for the whole game,” he said. “Arsenal’s supporters got some confidence after they scored, but we could hear our fans non-stop the whole time.

“We could hear them singing and that helped us on the pitch, as we showed that we’re capable of playing at a high level.

“We’re disappointed, though, because we should have finished the game off and taken our chances to make it 2-0.

“We had the opportunities but didn’t take them and against top teams that can end up hurting you.”
