The skipper said during the build-up to the game that pride was at stake after the 3-0 defeat at Highbury and the team could have done little more in that respect.
"Yes, but at the end of the day we've not got the three points which makes our fans delighted and makes us all have a great weekend," reasoned Teddy. "We couldn't have done any more, tried really hard, had the better chances, should have won but didn't.
"At least we've gathered a bit of pride. There is no doubting they are a very, very good team and they battered us over there.
"We needed to get some pride back for our fans and we did that to a certain extent but at the end of the day they can say they've taken four points off us."
Teddy Sheringham says a certain amount of pride was restored against Arsenal but could not help reflecting on the two points that got away.
