STAR PLAYER

Harry Kane: Continued his return to form with a well-taken opener. Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Dele Alli could have all challenged the England man for star player but his unerring finish is deserving of the accolade.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Kieran Gibbs had failed to score a Premier League goal in over three years but he provided a largely undeserved equaliser as he bundled home Mesut Ozil's cross at the back post just moments after coming off the bench.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

Arsene Wenger was hamstrung by the sheer number of injuries, naming 10 of the side battered in Munich. Lack of options on the bench too, but in Kieran Gibbs he at least made a substitution that worked for his side. Mauricio Pochettino will see this as two points dropped as his side responded well to a third game in six days.

MOAN OF THE MATCH

A north London derby with only one booking? Always nice to see a bit of blood and thunder in these meetings but it is less and less about the commitment in such fixtures.

WHO'S UP NEXT?

West Brom v Arsenal, November 21 (Premier League)

Tottenham v West Ham, November 22 (Premier League)
