Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny admits he should have done better for Tottenham's second goal in their derby defeat.

Szczesny held his hands up for that second goal but he had no complaints about Tottenham's first - scored by Rafael van der Vaart - despite claims that the Dutchman handled the ball before finding the net.

"I didn't see the handball, I thought he controlled it and finished very well," the Pole told "It was a good finish.

"The second goal I was very disappointed in myself - I shouldn't get beaten from that kind of distance so I will take that myself.

"There was a lot of movement on the ball and I reacted too late. I got a touch on it but it wasn't strong enough. I blame myself for the second one but other than that I didn't think the team deserved to lose the game."
