​Arsenal striker Lacazette: Tottenham can thank Lloris for draw

Alexandre Lacazette believes Hugo Lloris is the only reason Arsenal did not win the North London derby.

Despite going 0-2 down to goals from Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane, the Gunners bounced back with a rocking second half display.

They should have won the game but had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Lloris made several impressive saves to keep his team in the game.

"We wanted to win today but one point for each team is good," Lacazette told the BBC.

"It is always better to get one point rather than nothing. I scored and everybody was happy going into half-time.

"I think they can say thank you Hugo [Lloris] for all the saves."
