Unai Emery: We played like a team, pushing individually and collectivley

Unai Emery was delighted with a point away from home in the 1-1 draw at Wembley against Spurs this afternoon. "I am proud of the players for our work. You can win, lose or draw," said the Arsenal coach. "We played like a team, feeling together, pushing individually and collectively. "The adaptation to the match was good. Our moments in 90 minutes, they were strong also. But he was less happy about the encroachment by Vertonghen on the penalty which Hugo Lloris saved. "Two months ago I said VAR is coming to help the referees," he said. "Today, for me, the referees had a big personality, but it’s not enough to make the best decisions in difficult actions in the box. VAR is coming to help them to be clear in a match like today. "In 90 minutes if you create chances and score, you can win. They created chances as well and our keeper saved. "But I think we played with a big spirit collectively, tactically we adapted well to battle them. "I am very proud of the players because after 1-1 we got into their box to score the second goal and try to win. "This is the mentality we want."
