The midfielder was excellent again as we took the lead and then had a purple patch of chances to possibly put the game beyond doubt in the second half before the Gunners fought back for 1-1.
That made it 11 matches unbeaten in the Premier League as we quietly climbed up to fifth place.
Sunday's performance certainly caught the eye, not least as it was our third game in six days.
"You always want more," said Eric, whose displays in the holding role in midfield have earned a first senior England call for the friendlies against Spain and France this week.
"We were disappointed not to get nine points from the week and that’s the mentality we’ve got to have now. That's certainly the mentality in the changing room.
"Not a lot was said afterwards. Everyone was happy with what we’ve done and our performances over the week.
"Playing Monday, Thursday and Sunday isn’t easy so we can be proud of how we played but again, there were mixed emotions that we didn’t get the three points."
