With ArsÃ¨ne Wengerâs team trailing in the north London derby, the central defender charged forward to emphatically head Theo Walcottâs cross beyond Hugo Lloris to equalise.
âIt was amazing from the very start,â he told Arsenal Player. "It was very good to score because we were one man up and they were dropping off. I kept standing in the box and tried to be lucky.
"The ball from Theo was very good and it was a good day to score.
âWe fell asleep a bit, especially at the beginning. The first goal for them was kind of a wake up. The sending off for Adebayor, maybe it was vital. Weâre taking it, weâre taking the score and are very happy with it.â
