Spurs winger Chadli admits sleepless nights after Arsenal defeat

Tottenham winger Nacer Chadli says defeat to Arsenal on Sunday has given him sleepless nights.

Chadli was on the spot when Wojciech Szczesny twice dropped crosses only to be denied by Bacary Sagna and then Laurent Koscielny on the goalline.

"I did some good things in the game but I also should have scored," Chadli told the Spurs website.

"Everything happened so quickly. I couldn't do it with my first touch so I took a second, chopped inside onto my right and shot, but there were two defenders on the line. Perhaps it looked easier than it was.

"Two days later and I'm still thinking about this game. I didn't get a lot of sleep for two nights thinking about it.

"It's a huge shame that we lost the game. We had more of the ball and more chances. We deserved more."
